When it comes to cooking, I'm not "chicken" about experimenting—I discovered this mouthwatering marinade in a poultry cookbook and decided to try it with pork chops. My family's glad—it's become a favorite! Don't be bashful about basting a pork roast or ribs with the marinade, either...I did, and I discovered two more family-favorite taste treats.—Peggy Gwillim, Strasbourg, Saskatchewan

Ingredients

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lemon zest
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh rosemary or 1 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
  • 4 bone-in pork loin chops (1 inch thick)

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk garlic, lemon juice, zest, oil, rosemary, basil and pepper. Pour 1/3 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain marinade; brush the remaining marinade on the chops while cooking. Grill chops over medium heat about 4-5 minutes per side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let meat stand for 5 minutes before serving.
