This was a really delicious way to prepare lamb chops. All of the different flavors complimented each other so well. I followed the directions as posted other than that I used loin chops instead of rib chops, so I had to cook longer. In addition to the orzo (which I loved), we served with a side of roasted egglplant which complimented the dish well. Thanks, Chia!

Delicious,We love lamb. This is a very easy to make recipe. I didn't use the mint as I didn't have any. Other than that I made it like the recipe said, cutting the recipe down for 2 people. I used the mixed vegetable Orzo then added Feta Cheese, also add a small eggplant to the tomato, olives etc, YUMMY. Thank you Chia, for another DELICIOUS recipe.
