It wasn't as tangy as some chutney is, but it worked perfect with the marinade on the lamb chops. The lamb was perfectly done (probably some of the best chops we've tested!). This recipe is a total keeper. The chutney can be made a day in advance and the lamb can be marinaded overnight since the marinade is not very acidic.
