Lamb Chops: Not Baaaad

A friend of ours had children who raised some sheep for an F.F.A. (Future Farmers of America) project. When the project was over, the children's interest in the sheep was done, too. Well, good thing sheep are tasty when cooked. We are certainly glad that our friend kept us in mind.

My understanding is that the age of the sheep when it is slaughtered determines the name that the meat receives: lamb, sheep, or mutton. My butcher shop wrote "lamb" on all of our packages, but I don't know how old the sheep actually was.

Cast your vote for Breaded and Deep-Fried Lamb Chops


We lightly seasoned the chops on both sides with seasoned salt. Next, we coated the chops with flour, then egg, and then finally cracker crumbs.

We deep-fried our lamb chops in canola oil for 5 minutes. The oil bubbles up slightly, but as soon as you have all of them in, set your timer for 5 minutes. I checked the temperature with an electronic probe.

Please note that the oil in a deep fryer gets very hot. Be sure to place your chops in the oil with a minimum of splashing.

You can cook the chops all at the same time. I have an immersion deep fryer, which means that the heating element is in the bottom of the oil, not in the body of the fryer.

Cook Time

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 5 min
Ready in: 20 min
Yields: 4 lamb chops


  • 4 lamb chops
  • 1/2 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 4 eggs, beaten
  • 1 1/2 cups cracker crumbs, finely ground


  1. Heat deep fryer to 375. Sprinkle lamb chops with seasoned salt (Lawry's Hunters Blend is a good choice).
  2. Roll lamb chop in flour, coating all sides.
  3. Take floured lamb chop and coat with egg.
  4. Place egged lamb chop in ground crackers and coat evenly. Repeat for the other lamb chops.
  5. Place lamb chops in deep fryer and cook for 5 minutes until temperature probe reads at least 145 degrees. Mine were over 180 when I pulled them out.
  6. Drain and eat with your favorite steak sauce or condiment.

      Hello, Leland Johnson! Thank you for your comment. I looked up Canola Oil, and got a lot of different opinions on its origin. However, if it is from the canola plant, or rapeseed plant, it is natural. We use it because it causes less autoimmune distress than peanut oil for my hubby. I did find that the more you read about it, the less you want to consume it. Sigh. If you feed your sheep pellets infused with canola oil, the oil transfers into the meat and makes the meat healthier... So, like that house on ocean front property in Arizona...should we pass, or not?

      Char- this looks fantastic! I just wish lamb wasn't so expensive. My mouth is now watering- thank you very much.

      Great job on this article-


      PS- I heard canola is not a natural oil. Have you heard that? I heard it was created by someone from canada hence Can-ola. Is that correct?
