TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Broil: 15 min. YIELD:2 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon grated orange peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 bone-in pork loin chops (7 ounces each)

Directions
