Lamb Chops

My husband's favorite dinner is lamb chops, so I am frequently looking for new ways to serve them. This mixture of sweet, salty, sour and spicy was a winning combination. Try to find uniform-sized chops for even cooking. Better yet, have your store butcher cut them fresh for you, so you get just what you need. If the weather is nice, cook these on the grill for added flavor.

In a bowl, combine garlic, honey, lemon juice and soy sauce. Brush lamb chops with mixture and marinate for 20 minutes, turning them and brushing them every 5 minutes. Preheat the broiler or grill. Cook the chops for 4 to 5 minutes per side
