In a medium-size mixing bowl, add lamb pieces along with salt and lemon juice. Apply salt and lemon on all sides of the lamb chops and set aside.

Meanwhile, make the sauce in a good quality blender, you will need to add some water to run the blender and blitz the ingredients, but try not to add more than a quarter cup of water. 

Dip lamb pieces in the chutney and marinade covered and refrigerated for 4 hours, if possible.

When ready to cook, preheat oven at 400 F and heat your grill. Place lamb pieces on the grill and cook each side for 4 minutes. Place lamb chops in the oven for 15 minutes off cooking.
