What makes this lamb chops recipe a delight is the creamy tzatziki sauce. The sauce itself is made from diluted yogurt and mixed with cucumbers and dried seasonings for a flavorful lamb chop dish. The sauce compliments the meat’s bold aftertaste giving it a subtle sweet and savory flavor. For this fancy dish, we cook the meat in a crockpot, which makes it that much easier for you.
