    Roast Chump of Lamb with Parsley and Caper Sauce

    Roast chump is a lean and flavoursome cut, all the more succulent if rested for 5 minutes after roasting. The piquant sauce goes well with the lambs natural sweetness and it is easy to make following the quick white sauce method.

    • Cooking time: 50 minutes to 60 minutes
