Grilled lamb chops a la provenzal

Yesterday I wanted to make something French to celebrate Bastille day and as it’s summer we are grilling. I looked into my dear Barbecue Bible for something French and came up with this extremely simple recipe which, according to Steven Raichlen at least, can be found all over Provence. It was very good, so much so that my 3 yo asked me to make them again tonight.
Basically, mix 1/4 cup of olive oil with a tablespoon or two of lemon juice (I didn’t bother measuring anything). Baste the lamb chops with the mixture, season with salt and pepper and herbs de provence. Let rest for 10 minutes at room temperature and then grill on a high until done, 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. You can baste the lamb while grilling but we didn’t bother to.
