Lamb Chops & Orzo with Apricot Chutney
I know, the title of this recipe is kind of a mouthful. But, it’s one that I’ve wanted to create for a long time. I keep a running list of recipes I wanted to develop, and this started as “lamb chop dish?” on that list. Over the next few months, other items were slowly added, as they came to me (usually right before I fell asleep at night. How convenient). Next, I thought it would be good with orzo pasta. There should probably be some dried apricot chutney too, because dried apricots are awesome. And oh yes, I always have yogurt on hand, so let’s throw some of that in there too.
You know how yesterday, I told you about the new love of my life, Door to Door Organics (DTDO)? As soon as I signed up, I spotted these gorgeous lamb chops from Michigan’s Tirrell Centennial Farms among their offerings, and I knew this dish would become a reality, and soon. I thought it would be fun to see if I could order all of the ingredients from DTDO, and it was no problem at all. They had every single thing I needed to get in the kitchen and make this Lamb Chops & Orzo recipe dream a reality!
This is definitely one of those recipes that looks a little more complicated than it really is. I know, there’s four sections to the ingredient list. BUT, hear me out. The Herbed Yogurt Sauce takes literally 2 minutes to stir up. It can be made a few days in advance and kept in the fridge, if you want. Same for the Apricot Chutney. The orzo portion of the event is literally dumping pasta in boiling water and setting a timer. And while the pasta is cooking, you just sear the lamb chops in a pan. See? Pretty simple, yet special. Perfect for a dinner party, or just a fancy meal at home.
