Marinated Lamb Chops

I made these grilled marinated lamp chops for my husband's birthday dinner this year, and they were really delicious. I started out with thick-cut lamb chops (~1-inch), and the flavor was really great after a 2-hour soak in the marinade. We'll definitely be making these again!

Marinated Lamb Chops

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lemon, zested (about 1/2 teaspoon)
1 lemon, juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh oregano leaves, or 2 teaspoons dried oregano
2 tablespoons minced garlic
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (6 to 8-ounce) lamb loin chops (thick-cut is better), trimmed of all visible fat (to avoid flare-ups on the grill)

In a small bowl stir together the first 7 ingredients. Put the lamb chops in a sealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over them. Move the chops around in the bag so the marinade coats them well. Marinate for at least 1 hour; I marinated them for 2 hours.
Grill or broil the chops for 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium rare.
