DH and I made these lamb chops for dinner last night and thought they were good. This is a great dish if you are low on time, as there is very little prep involved and it cooks up quickly. We used cremini mushrooms as the recipe did not specify and that is what we like. DH thought it could have used a little more flavor (maybe garlic?) and commented that he was glad that he had heavily seasoned the chops before cooking (which was not specified in the recipe). All in all, this was a fast and easy meal and would be perfect for a beginning chef or a mid-week dinner. Thanks for posting.
