Lemon Grilled Lamb Chops

Lemon Grilled Lamb Chops
Servings: 6


  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon zest
  • 12 lamb rib chops
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

Make It

1. Combine the parsley, garlic, and lemon zest in a small bowl.

2. Place the lamb chops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. Add half of the parsley mixture and the oil to the chops in bag; seal bag. Turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 12 hours. Reserve the remaining parsley mixture.

3. Remove the lamb chops from the marinade and season lightly with salt and pepper. For a gas or charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of a covered grill over medium-high heat for 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove from the heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Sprinkle with reserved parsley mixture just before serving.


  • Little fingers can easily pick up the chops and eat the meat right off the bone.
