I can't seem to follow any recipes exactly so of course I changed this one. I added garlic like 6 cloves chopped instead of thyme I used approx 2 TBS fresh-chopped rosemary (I have it growing in my garden) some fresh oregano and I did use the olive oil lemon juice and salt/pepper to taste but I doubled the amounts to marinade the lamb chops. I marinated the chops overnight about 24-30 hours. We grilled it in the next evening. Served with potatoes grilled veggies and a nice red wine. Voila it was GREAT! Read More

This is a wonderful dish however a few crushed cloves of garlic and rosemary will spice it up even more. Try a boned leg of lamb in place of chops for another treat. Read More

PERFECTCHERRY - it might help if you used the correct ingredients... Lavender??? Anyway we loved this! I put the chops in a pyrex dish drizzled them with olive oil (way less than 1/2 a cup) drizzled the juice of half a lemon over then snipped some fresh thyme and rosemary on top. I marinaded them overnight and the flavor was just perfect! Great recipe. Thanks Diane! Read More

I made this for my sister; I don't eat lamb. She thought this was fantastic. I added fresh chopped oregano to the fresh chopped thyme and thought it smelled great. Next time I'd add a bit of fresh chopped garlic. I have a halogen oven and in that it took 14 total minutes to cook to perfection. I'd make this again for my sister and highly recommend it as is or with garlic. Thanks Diane for the recipe. Read More

Very simple easy to do. I cheated--I used my George Foreman Grillin' Machine to do the cooking.Despite the lack of smoked flavor chops were tender juicy and very tasty. Read More

I found the recommended amount of lavender was really overwhelming; My husband and I didn't care for the end result at all. If I ever make this recipe again I will probably use only half as much lavender. Read More
