Rosemary-Thyme Lamb Chops

My father loves lamb, so I make this dish whenever he visits. It's the perfect main course for holidays or get-togethers. —Kristina Mitchell, Clearwater, Florida.

    Perfect! The herbs greatly complimented the richness of the lamb and the Dijon contributed a zippy taste. Will definitely make this again; though I'd get a less expensive cut of lamb...perhaps lamb kabobs.

    Delicious flavoring. Love this recipe for a "fancy" dinner when you want to impress but not make life too difficult. An easy recipe to have for a smaller holiday meal.
