To top it off, we're serving these lamb chops with a tangy mint pesto that takes the dish to the next level. This recipe is simple, easy to make, and perfect for any time of year.


  • 8 lamb chops
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp fresh rosemary, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh thyme, finely chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Mint Pesto:
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves, packed
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley leaves, packed
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a small bowl, mix together the minced garlic, chopped rosemary and thyme, olive oil, salt, and pepper. Rub this mixture onto the lamb chops, making sure they're fully coated. Let the chops sit at room temperature for about 20 minutes.
  2. Heat up a grill to medium-high heat. Once heated, add the lamb chops to the grill and cook for about 3-4 minutes per side, or until they've reached your desired level of doneness.
  3. While the lamb chops are cooking, make the mint pesto. In a food processor, add the mint leaves, parsley leaves, walnuts, Parmesan cheese, chopped garlic, salt, and pepper. Pulse until the ingredients are roughly chopped. Then, while the processor is running, slowly pour in the olive oil until the mixture is smooth and fully combined.
  4. Once the lamb chops are done cooking, remove them from the grill and let them rest for about 5 minutes. Then, serve the lamb chops topped with the mint pesto.


  • If you don't have fresh herbs on hand, you can use dried herbs instead. Just use half the amount called for in the recipe.
  • If you want a smoother pesto, add more olive oil until you reach your desired consistency.
  • Serve the lamb chops with your favorite sides, like roasted vegetables or a salad.
