  1. Whisk yogurt, lemon juice, lemon zest, chile paste, garlic, rosemary, oregano, salt, black pepper, and cinnamon together in a small bowl. Transfer into a resealable plastic bag. Add the lamb chops, coat with the marinade, squeeze out excess air, and seal the bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
  2. Preheat grill for medium heat and lightly oil the grate.
  3. Remove lamb chops from from marinade and scrape off excess. Discard used marinade. Season chops with salt and black pepper. Place on the preheated grill and cook until browned and medium rare on the inside, 3 to 4 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C).

  • Marinate for 4 to 10 hours for best results.

FANTASTIC marinade - possibly the best lamb chops we've ever had. Definitely a hit!

Made this tonight for my wife and 3 teenage kids. It is truly delicious and quick and easy to make. I served it with spinach cooked in lemon juice and some lightly sautéed zucchini

I made this last night and my husband and 18 month old loved it! Will cook again with no changes:)

Mmmm, so tasty and I only marinated it for 2 hours. The lamb was so tender and juicy. I will definitely use this recipe again. Thanks!

Thanks for this delicious recipe! Made lamb chops for the first time tonight and my family loved them.
