Citrus-Glazed Pork Chops Recipe

Citrus-Glazed Pork Chops Recipe

Begin your meal with sweet and citrusy Orange-Glazed Pork Chops from Athena Russell of Florence, South Carolina who loves to create recipes. “I have a passion for cooking; I've been doing it since elementary school,” she writes. The chops are tender and juicy, and with a bit of Dijon and orange juice you'll have bursts of flavor in every bite.
