My mother's cooking is the inspiration behind this recipe. I adapted her scrumptious Easter leg of lamb so it can be served any day of the week. —Bryn Namavari, Chicago, Illinois

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, halved
  • 1/3 cup lightly packed fresh basil leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup fresh oregano leaves
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped chives
  • 2 tablespoons fresh rosemary leaves
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 lamb loin chops (1 inch thick and 3 ounces each)
  • POTATOES:
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 medium red potatoes, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 4 cups fresh baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

Directions

Place the first nine ingredients in a food processor; pulse until blended. Spread over both sides of chops. Let stand 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add potatoes; cook 15-20 minutes or until tender and golden brown, stirring occasionally. Sprinkle with lemon pepper, salt and paprika; remove from pan. Keep warm.
Grill chops, covered, over medium heat 3-4 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
Toss spinach with potatoes; sprinkle with pine nuts. Serve with lamb chops. Yield: 4 servings.
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
