Place the lamb chops into a bowl and cover with the marinade. Allowing them to marinate at room temperature for 20 minutes gives the chops time to absorb the flavors while also warming up a bit so they cook more evenly.

When it’s time to cook them, a quick 2-3 minute sear on each side will give you a perfectly browned crust with pink on the inside. Use a wired meat thermometer to ensure you reach your desired doneness.
