Fantastic recipe/I did not use the mint as we do not like it. Think the sauce would work well with chicken as well. Give this max rating..

I love it! I cook lamb chops often but I generally like them simple with pepper and salt. However, I really love the extra flavor of this recipe. The flavor and the aroma are perfectly blende...

I didn't have mint or shallots. Used onion powder in the shallots place. Still absolutely delicious- The best lamb I've ever made:)

Awesome recipe! My husband and I truly enjoyed these. The balsamic reduction sauce is delicious and the lamb was cooked perfectly...my lamb was more like 1" thick and I cooked 4min per side and ...

Awesome dish! I added an apple with the onions to spice it up. I made it with Lamb shoulder which worked out just as well.

Excellent recipe! My husband doesn't even like lamb and was asking for seconds! Excellent!
