How to Make It

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil. Stir in rice and return to a boil, then reduce heat. Cover and simmer until rice has absorbed all liquid, about 20 minutes.

  2. Preheat broiler. In a bowl, combine olive oil, garlic, cumin, coriander, fennel and salt. Place all four lamb chops in a resealable plastic bag and pour wet rub over them. Seal bag and rub chops so that marinade fully covers them. Let them sit for about 5 minutes.

  3. Place lamb chops on a broiler pan or a foilcovered baking sheet. Broil 4 inches from heat for about 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove chops from oven and set aside to rest for 7 to 10 minutes. Serve warm with rice.
