Grilled Lamb Chops with Garlic, Lemon, Wine and Herbs

Grilled Lamb Chops with Garlic, Lemon and Wine and a mixture of herbs are what makes these the most tasty and succulent lamb chops you’ll ever had!  This is an easy, crowd-pleasing dish from our archives because we LOVE lamb all year-round, and especially on Easter!

The key to these juicy lamb chops is in the simple marinade. Marinating the lamb loin chops with lemon juice, red wine, garlic and fresh herbs like parsley and rosemary for a few hours or even overnight is the secret to making them so delicious!!

Then grill them for a few minutes on both sides and serve.  I used a cast iron grill pan to make these, but an outdoor grill works just the same. You can also cook these lamb chops in your oven broiler. Broiling is another great method to getting a grill-like results. They are both fast and easy methods to cooking meats.

Some of our friends think Italian cooking is difficult or too complex, and they won’t even attempt to make an Italian dish. Well that’s not true. Italian cooking is actually very easy! Through the years we watched our mother use only the simplest ingredients, the ones that we all have in our pantry.  No need to fuss with a lot of ingredients or ones you can’t find or will never-ever use again. And that’s what makes Italian cooking so easy!

To compliment the lamb, serve it with any of our side dishes like Easy Garlic Mashed Potatoes,
or  Roasted Baby Red and Yukon Potatoes with Herbs.  Enjoy!

Grilled  Lamb Chops with Garlic, Lemon, Wine and Herbs

  • 4  Lamb Loin Chops – 1″ to 1+ 1/2 inch thick cut
  • 3 garlic cloves – diced
  • 2 Tbsp. fresh parsley – chopped
  • 2  tsp. dried Italian Seasonings ( I used McCormick)
  • 1 sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 Tbsp. of red wine
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder
  • salt and pepper

In a deep platter, place the lamb chops side by side. Season with salt and pepper .
Scatter the garlic, fresh parsley, rosemary, and Italian seasonings. 
Drizzle the lemon juice, olive oil and red wine. Cover with clear wrap.
Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or over night.

Remove from refrigerator, allow meat adjust to room temperature, about 15 minutes. Heat cast iron grill pan. Spray with cooking oil to prevent sticking.

Grill lamb chops for about 3 to 4  minutes per side for medium rare, longer for medium to well.
Brush the remaining marinade on each lamb chop while grilling.
When ready, remove and serve.

Serves 2 to 4

      Years ago, we didn't care for lamb, until my husband marinated them this way and now we love them all year round. We hope you'll try them soon! Enjoy!
