So far we’ve tackled both chicken (with this to-die-for Honey Lemon Garlic Chicken) and beef (with this oh-so-easy London Broil), so I thought it was only fitting that we move on to something just slightly more challenging:  Pork Chops.

The main reason pork chops can be challenging is that it is really easy to overcook them, which can make them dry and tough. Luckily this delicious orange glaze helps add a lot of moisture and flavor, but it is also important to cook them just enough. For pork it is super helpful to have a meat thermometer on hand so that you can take them out of the oven the second they hit 145 degrees. If you don’t have one, don’t fret too much, just set the timer on the low end and check them frequently to prevent overcooking.

I promise that the extra effort will be worth it–my family absolutely raved about this dish & literally could not get enough!

Thaw the pork chops in a shallow glass baking dish when you're ready to cook and enjoy!

Step 5: Thaw pork chops; place in shallow baking dish, cover with remaining marinade, and bake at 375 degrees for 20-25 minutes, turning once during cooking and removing from oven as soon as center temperature reaches 145 degrees.
