Let's Make It
Heat oven to 350°F.
Mix dressing, rosemary, vinegar, lemon zest and pepper until blended.
Score flesh on both sides of lamb shoulder. Insert garlic pieces into scored lines in meat. Place lamb, fat side up, on rack in roasting pan. Brush lamb with dressing mixture; top with oregano. Pour chicken broth around lamb.
Bake 30 min. Reduce temperature to 325°F; cover. Bake 2 hours. Increase oven temperature to 350°F. Bake, uncovered, 30 min. or until lamb is done (160°F), basting occasionally with pan juices.
Serve with hot baked potatoes, and a small mixed green salad drizzled with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Since the lamb shoulder has more fat than the leg, it is typically less expensive and more flavorful than the leg.
