Q & A…

  1. Can we season with different herbs? Cooking is a matter of preference when it comes to seasoning meats. So yes, go ahead and use your favorite herbs with lamb.
  2. Instead of Grilling, Can We Broil Them? You can also cook these lamb chops in your oven broiler. Broiling is another great method for getting grill-like results. But, keep an eye on them, they will cook up quickly in a matter of minutes.
  3. Are Lamb Chops Easy to Cook? Yes, and this is an Italian recipe. Italian cooking is very easy! We 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.

Try this recipe, you are going to love it!
