Sooo good! I made 4 chops for the 2 of us, but made the full amount of sauce, and seasoning for the lamb, adding a couple tablespoons of EVOO. After I spooned out enough for the lamb, I boiled and added cut up fingerling potatoes to make Greek potato salad. After sauteing the lamb (3 min per side was perfect), I chopped up cabbage (baby savoy, but you could use any green) and sauteed it in the lamb drippings, with the garlic and oregano that fell off. Then, after feasting, I added the remaining yogurt sauce (I used Greek yogurt) to the remaining potato salad. I'll be the envy of the office at lunchtime tomorrow, too bad there's no leftover lamb ;-)

Very simple, fast and tasty lamb recipe. I used dried oregano and Greek yogurt. My chops were a little thick, so I did need to finish them in the oven after searing. Served with a side salad. I would make these again and would feel comfortable serving them to guests.

Supereasy, great for weeknight supper. Made to recipe except let chops marinate about 20-30 min while we prepped the rest of the meal. Served with couscous and a chopped salad with non-fat Greek dressing. Very good.

Cooked the lamb on the grill... wouldn't have it any other way!

So good. The sauce is tasty but the lamb chops themselves are so delicious I don't think you really need it. If I were to make this for a dinner party I would make the sauce for a fancy factor. Next time I make it just for my family I will probably skip it.

Perfect. Served with minted couscous and a greek salad. This will be made again. I added half cup white wine to the drippings and a couple of TBs butter for a quick sauce over the top. Added extra lemon to the yogurt sauce. It was all yummy.

Loved this recipe. Extremely easy to prepare and full of fresh ingredients. Can also adjust citrus to lime and and I added the zest for a more punch and flavor. I will definately make again.

I often have pork chops on hand. I wonder how this would work if I used them instead of lamb.
