Notes: Panko, the coarse dried bread crumbs that give these lamb chops a crunchy coating, are sold in Japanese food markets and in the Asian food sections of well-stocked supermarkets. Stored airtight, they keep for months.

  • Trim excess fat from lamb and discard. Rinse chops and pat dry. One at a time, turn chops in vinegar mixture to coat well; lift out and press firmly in panko mixture, turning to coat all sides. Place chops slightly apart in a lightly oiled 10- by 15-inch pan; drizzle evenly with butter.

  • Bake in a 500° regular or convection oven until coating is browned and meat is medium-rare (pink) in center of thickest part (cut to test), 10 to 14 minutes, turning once after 5 minutes. Serve with mint aioli and season to taste with salt.
