Lemon Chilli Lamb Cutlets

This is the perfect dish if you don’t want to spend ages preparing dinner or you’re having friends over for a barbecue. Don’t be put off by the chilli as it’s really quite mild and adds to the flavour of the cutlets. This is one of my family’s favourites … I hope you enjoy it too!

  1. I do love lamb cutlets but it’s a pity they’re now so expensive. I agree they are so quick and easy to prepare. I love the sound of the lemon and chilli marinade xx
