Pecan Crusted Lambchops

6 lamb chops 1/2 c coarsely chopped pecans
1/4 c flat-leaf parsley leaves
1 T fresh rosemary leaves or 1 teaspoon dried
2 medium cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 c bread crumbs, fine, dry, plain or seasoned
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp coarsely ground black pepper
2 - 3 T Dijon mustard

Preparation:  In a food processor or chopper, combine pecans, parsley, rosemary, garlic, bread crumbs, salt, and pepper. Process until very finely chopped. Transfer to a plate. Meanwhile, add 1 tablespoon olive oil to a baking pan or roasting pan which will hold the chops in one layer. Set oven to 350° and place pan in oven to preheat. Rub each chop with mustard then place on pecan mixture, turning to coat all sides. Place in preheated pan in oven and roast for about 20 minutes for medium to medium-rare, turning once about halfway through.
