Chipotle-Orange Pork Chops Recipe

Chipotle-Orange Pork Chops Recipe

Orange juice concentrate and maple syrup add a one-two punch of sweetness to smokin’ flavors. With a method that’s as easy as “whisk and grill,” you’d be crazy not to fix extras. —Billy Hensley, Temperance, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons chopped chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 8 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each and 3/4 inch thick)

Directions
