  • 4 double lamb chops
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

1. Combine the marinade ingredients in a measuring jug, mixing well. Cover and chill for 1 hour.

3. Meanwhile, light the barbecue and oil the grill.

4. When ready to cook, remove the excess yoghurt marinade from the chops. Season with salt and pepper, and brush with oil.
