Herb Crusted Italian Lamb Chops

These lamb chops are brushed with dijon mustard
and coated with a garlic-herb crumb crust.  
This recipe gives these chops a delicious 
rack of lamb flavor.
They are oven-roasted for under 20  minutes. 
You can prep everything ahead of time and 
refrigerate the chops until ready to roast. 
Let them sit first at room temperature 
before roasting for even doneness. 
 Combine the crumb mixture. I use whatever fresh
herbs I have on hand. That's usually parsley, 
rosemary, thyme, and oregano. You don't need 
much. Of course there's minced garlic, too.
 Trim excess fat from lamb chops. Most of the 
fat will come off by pulling it with your fingers.
I count on 2-3 lamb chops per person. 
 Combine all the crumb ingredients in a shallow 
pie plate, one of my favorite kitchen items. HERE
 I put a dollop of mustard on each chop.
 Spread it on all sides.
 Press into the crumb mixture.
 Coat all sides well. 
I use any leftover crumbs on vegetables that
I'll roast in the oven along with the lamb chops.
 The vegetables roast on a baking sheet at the 
same time. They'll cook 5  minutes longer after
 the lamb chops come out of the oven to rest. 
 Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and 
roast @400º  for 16 minutes for medium-rare
 Remove from the oven and let rest for 5  minutes.
 Serve with the vegetable of your choice. 
 The crumbs crust is golden and crunchy.
 The inside is a perfect medium-rare.
