The start of the year is always about getting back into the groove and it means that you don’t want to worry too much about cooking. The oven is the lifesaver of the cooking world and gives you time to do other things while it’s used. Lamb chops are the perfect use of your oven and your taste buds and family will thank you. Our Baked Lamb Chops with Soy Sauce are tender on the inside and crispy on the outside while being the perfect midweek dinner.

Soy sauce adds some great umami flavour without needing too much extra salt. Squeeze some lemon juice onto the lamb chops before they go in which can help with the “grassy” flavours. You can’t go wrong with roasted garlic baby potatoes and a light salad with these Baked Lamb Chops with Soy Sauce. You will need a light side with these chops because they can be quite rich. The lamb chops come out of the oven fully caramelised and with a beautiful sticky glaze.

It’s the perfect weekday meal with your family this summer. Try our Baked Lamb Chops with Soy Sauce for the ultimate treat with some side veggies and roast potatoes.
