  • 1 New Zealand grass-fed lamb rack, cut into chops (Tip: look for the Taste Pure Nature Logo)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons smoked paprika
  • 1 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons tarragon, minced
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chives, thinly sliced
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • 2 eggs, beaten

  • 2. In a separate shallow bowl, combine panko breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, tarragon and 1 tablespoon of chives.
  • 3. Season the lamb chops with salt and pepper.
