    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    What can I say, other than this is an EASY and wonderful tasting way to make lamb chops. The Middle Eastern Rice goes very well with the lamb chops, and can also be used to compliment other dishes as well.

      DH and I made these lamb chops last night for dinner. We really enjoyed them. The chops were very flavorful and required minimal prep. The only modification I made to the chops was to use freshly chopped garlic. I would definitely make these chops again. The middle eastern rice was complimentary to the lamb chops. Mine came out a little bit dry as I followed the directions on my rice cooker (using basmati), and it required less water than the 3 cups you listed. Perhaps if I used 3 cups as you stated it would have been more moist. The flavor, however, was good and I added a little olive oil to moisten it up. Also, I had to substitute dark raisins for golden as I didn't have any on hand. I really enjoyed the toasted pine nuts in the rice dish. Defintely a different way of making rice than I am used to. I would certainly make this dish again, with and without the rice. I also served with green beans. Thanks, Alan!
