Another delicious recipe that is always a hit at my dinner parties!
These tasty lamb chops are infused with fresh rosemary, garlic, thyme, lemon, paprika, and olive oil. They are tender and simply scrumptious!
The greatest thing about these chops is that you can marinate them days in advance and store them in the fridge until you are ready to make them.
Grill some lemons and them squeeze them over the chops. That will enhance those wonderful Mediterranean flavors!
