Caribbean Chutney-Crusted Chops
"I like to impress my guests with delicious meals, and these lamb chops are one of my best entrees," says Josephine Piro from Easton, Pennsylvania. "It all started with a jar of chutney I received in a gift basket and didn’t know what to do with. Folks think I fuss all day over these sophisticated chops…but they’re done in 30 minutes flat—and they’re fabulous!"
