These are my Mother's favorite!  So easy and delicious, you will be making these any time you find beautiful loin lamb chops in the market.  Check out the video for a complete how-to!

Serves 4

4             large garlic cloves, finely minced

1              tablespoon fresh thyme leaves, lightly crushed

1              tablespoon fresh rosemary leaves, lightly crushed

2             teaspoons kosher salt

1              tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

8             1 ¼-inchthick lamb loin chops

1              tablespoon olive oil


Mix first 5 ingredients together in a large bowl.  Add lamb, turn and coat with mixture.  Let marinate at room temperature for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 hour.

Preheat oven to 400-degrees.  Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of oil in a very large, heavy, ovenproof skillet over high heat.  Add lamb; cook until browned, about 2-3 minutes per side.  Transfer skillet to oven and roast lamb chops to desired doneness, about 9-11 minutes for medium-rare.  Transfer lamb to platter, cover, and let rest 5 minutes before serving
