Lamb Chops With Mint Sauce

These lamb chops are easy to cook but always seem so fancy, especially when dressed up with a menta sauce. They just might be one of the easiest cuts of lamb to cook and the meat is reliably juicy and flavorful. There’s no need to worry about a marinade. The mint sauce is so fresh and that it provides all the extra flavor the delicate chops need.
