Marinating your lamb is completely optional. If you want to marinade your lamb chops, chop all the marinade ingredients (listed under NOTES)in a blender and add to a large zip lock bag with your lamb chop for one hour or even overnight.
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.Remove all lamb chops from the plastic bag and season both sides with salt and pepper. Heat a large pan on high heat and add 1 tbsp of olive oil once heated. Then sear lamb chops on both sides for 1-2 minutes until they are browned.
Next, transfer to a large baking dish, or keep in your pan if it is oven safe up to 400 degrees. Add your preferred vegetables such as asparagus, broccolini, or cauliflower and bake at 400 degrees for 8-10 minutes.
