Honey-Mustard Lamb Chops

 

Honey-Mustard Lamb Chops

This is a simple recipe and a nice change from the regular chicken or fish meal.  Prepare this the next time you have guests over and impress them with your unexpected culinary skills!  They’ll be even more surprised when they find out that it’s healthy!  Of course that does not mean you can have extra – remember portion control and stick to one serving!

6 servings

2 tablespoons honey

2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

2 tablespoons orange juice

2 tablespoons minced fresh rosemary
½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 teaspoon onion powder
½ teaspoon dry mustard
6 (5-ounce) lamb chops, trimmed of fat
6 fresh mint sprigs

 

Preheat broiler or grill. In a small bowl, mix the honey, lemon juice, orange juice, rosemary, mustard, garlic, onion powder, and dry mustard to create a basting sauce.  Brush each side of the lamb chops with the sauce and place on broiler pan or grill. Broil one side 5” to 6” from heat for 6 to 7 minutes or until brown then turn chops and brush with remaining basting sauce and broil for another 6 to 7 minutes or until brown. (Grill, basting and turning frequently for about 15 to 20 minutes, or until cooked through.)

 

Garnish with mint and serve.
