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.

You have successfully branded me Lori. This popped up as the first thing on Pinterest this morning and I saw your font and thought, Oh, something new from Lori! Well done 🙂 This looks really good! I’ve never made lamb chops which is a real shame.
Hehe, this good old free font from PicMonkey! Sometimes, I’ll see other recipes on Pinterest with this font, and get momentarily confused. Like “wait, I never made that?” And then I must remind myself that tons of other people must use this font 🙂
We would love to get the box of Just Fruit!
I would love to try a lot of the produce – especially blood oranges.
Between the lamb chops, yogurt, and apricots… I’m getting some Moroccan/Middle Eastern Vibes. I’m thinking I might try this with couscous instead of orzo and might rub the chops with some ras el hanout.
Hope I win (But who doesn’t really)! $100 would go a long way towards helping me stock up my student pantry/fridge.
I would purchase a large jug of Grade B Maple Syrup from Door to Door Organics with the gift card, because I just ran out! 🙂

I do my best thinking right before I fall asleep. I keep a notepad next to my bed for such occasions. My husband has been begging me to make lamb. I think I know what I’ll be making. Yum!
I REALLY need to get a notepad on my nightstand. I always end up getting up, walking across the room to get my phone, and sending an email to myself. Then getting all cold because I’m out from under the blankets. haha.
