Lamb Chops with Sweet Potato Chutney
- Preheat broiler. Trim fat from chops. Place chops on the unheated rack of a foil-lined broiler pan; set aside.
- For chutney, in a medium saucepan bring 1 cup of lightly salted water to boiling. Add the chopped sweet potato and cook for 5 minutes. Drain. Place shallots, crushed red pepper, brown sugar, vinegar, dried cranberries, and ginger in saucepan. Stir in sweet potato. Heat until vinegar bubbles; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove cover and simmer 2 more minutes or until liquid is slightly thickened and sweet potato is tender.
- Broil chops 3 to 4 inches from heat for 10 to 15 minutes for medium (160 degree F), turning meat over after half of the broiling time. Serve chops with the chutney. Makes 4 servings.
