Rosemary Scented Rack of Lamb with a Cranberry and Orange Chutney

This easy recipe for Rosemary Scented rack of Lamb with a Cranberry and Orange Chutney was inspired by country music artist Katrina Burgoyne. Katrina is from down under in Australia. So we paired Australian lamb with ingredients here in the states. Lamb has a bold, rich taste. So we decided to complement that with a tangy and sweet cranberry and orange chutney. To kick the chutney up a notch, we added some pepper flakes for some spice. Our dish is big on flavor and an absolute show stopper at any function.
