The Flying Chef's Note:
This is a delicious dish that apart from the cooking time is really easy to throw together and is not time consuming. The lamb is lovely and tender and the sauce has a wonderful flavour and the best part is once it's cooking you can just sit and relax, so you can enjoy guests company or just chill and watch some television, until its done.
