Lemon Herb Crusted Lamb Chops

RatingDifficultyBeginner

Time waits for no man (or lamb), so stop waiting until Christmas or Easter to enjoy a delicious lamb dish! Lamb chops are a much easier approach to lamb as opposed to a loin or leg –and this recipe makes your next meal delicious, quick & easy. Lamb is a gamey meat, so crusting it in my lemony, garlicky herb paste gives it great flavor and compliments the chop; and the Dijon mustard gives a tanginess as well as acts as a great glue for that golden brown crust. My chef tip: make sure to check your temperature while cooking. You don’t want your herb crust lamb chop to taste like an herb crusted shoe!
