Balsamic Honey Glazed Lamb Chops

A honey glaze transforms lamb chops into a bite that you wouldn't believe! The glazed fruit is the perfect compliment to this delicious dish by balancing out the flavor of the lamb with a tender sweetness.

  • 1 ½ teaspoons dried, ground thyme
  • 1 ½ teaspoons coarse ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ cup balsamic vinegar
