Olive oil 1 tablespoon
Garlic clove, sliced 1
4-ounce lamb chops, trimmed 4

Directions

  1. Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and sauté for a minute.
  2. Add lamb chops and cook for 4-5 minutes per side, or until desired degree of doneness. (Start off on medium-high heat to give the meat some color, and then reduce to medium-low.) Add olives and parsley during the last minute of cooking.
