The lamb chops will reach about 145° internally (or medium-rare) when they broil 5 minutes on each side.
1 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 cup plus 2 tablespoons uncooked couscous
2 1/2 tablespoons commercial pesto, divided
8 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed
2 tomatoes, cut in half crosswise (about 1 pound)
How to Make It
Bring broth to a boil in a medium saucepan; gradually stir in couscous. Remove from heat; cover and let stand 5 minutes or until done. Fluff with a fork.
While couscous stands, spread 2 tablespoons pesto over both sides of lamb. Spread 1 1/2 teaspoons pesto over cut sides of tomatoes. Place lamb and tomatoes on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray. Broil 5 minutes; turn lamb chops, and broil an additional 5 minutes or until desired degree of doneness. Serve with couscous.

Lamb was on sale this week, and when I saw this recipe I figured I could also finish up some leftover pesto in my fridge. It was extremely easy and quick to make, but too bland for me. I am not sure I would make it again - if I did, I would have to do additional seasoning. I really enjoyed the tomatoes, though. It was a different side dish for me. I used boxed couscus instead of the above recipe since it was bogo free.
