  • 4 lamb chops
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  • Oven
  • Baking sheet
  • Aluminum foil
  • Cooking thermometer


Preparing the Lamb Chops:

  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Season the Chops: Rub the lamb chops with olive oil, minced garlic, fresh rosemary, and thyme. Season generously with salt and pepper. Ensure the lamb chops are well coated with the seasoning.
  3. Let Them Rest: Allow the seasoned lamb chops to rest at room temperature for about 20-30 minutes. This helps them cook more evenly.


  1. Prepare the Baking Sheet: Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
  2. Baking Time: Place the seasoned lamb chops on the baking sheet and transfer them to the preheated oven.
  3. Roast: Roast the lamb chops for about 12-15 minutes for medium-rare (internal temperature of 145°F or 63°C) or longer if you prefer a different level of doneness. Use a cooking thermometer to ensure they reach your desired level of doneness.
  4. Resting Period: Remove the lamb chops from the oven and let them rest for 5-10 minutes. This allows the juices to redistribute, keeping the chops moist and flavorful.


  1. Plate and Garnish: Plate the lamb chops and garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary or thyme for an elegant touch.
  2. Side Dishes: Serve with your favorite sides like mashed potatoes, roasted vegetables, or a fresh salad.


  • Ensure the lamb chops are at room temperature before cooking for even cooking.
  • Adjust the cooking time based on your preferred level of doneness. Use a thermometer to be precise.
  • You can marinate the lamb chops in the seasoning for a few hours or overnight for enhanced flavor.
