Jessica’s Quick Recipe for Lamb Chops With 2 Herb Sauces

Jessica Holmes wasn't always into lamb chops, but she eventually started to appreciate the flavor of lamb. She enjoys chops because they have a "built-in handle."

Her quick and easy recipe for lamb chops with some yummy sauces takes only six minutes to make! The two sauces have nearly identical flavorings, but one is made creamy with yogurt, and the other is piquant with vinegar and oil.

Jessica said this recipe is good for kids and for parties because it's "like a meat lollipop." Maybe that's why this recipe has Levi's seal of approval.
