Ingredients Measures
Olive oil 1 tablespoon
Garlic clove, sliced 1
4-ounce lamb chops, trimmed 4
Black seedless olives, chopped 1/3 cup
Parsley, coarsely chopped ½ cup
Salt ¼ teaspoon
Pepper to taste


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.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Exchanges
4 lean meats; ½ vegetable

Side Suggestions: Baked Potato
Wash and scrub 2 baking potatoes (such as Russet). Prick several times with a fork and then cook on high heat in the microwave for 8-10 minutes, flipping potatoes over halfway through. Serve each potato with a teaspoon of butter or butter spread.

Side Suggestions: Steamed Green Beans
