Passover, one of the most widely celebrated Jewish holidays, is only a few weeks away, beginning on April 18th. I have had so many email and tweets for recipe ideas, so I thought I would share this Mediterranean Chicken recipe which is a family favorite. This recipe and a Passover menu will be featured in the spring issue of “Yum Food” Magazine. This chicken is simple, yet elegant, and it’s perfect for Easter as well as all holidays.
I know this may not be the “traditional” Easter Lamb dish that you might see in all the magazines and cooking shows, but this recipe is so great for many reasons. These Almond-Crusted Lamb Chops are light and healthy. They are lightly coated with Dijon mustard, almonds and touch a touch of olive oil. I used sea salt (which you will start seeing a lot of in my upcoming recipes) since it offers some extra nutrition in the form of minerals. I used a small rack of lamb, and it worked to perfection. They were juicy, tasty and can be prepared in under 30 minutes.
