Honey-Garlic Pork Chops

These chops are so simple to prepare yet taste really special. Honey, lemon and garlic form a classic combination that fits perfectly with grilled pork. I like that I can marinate the chops the night before or even in the morning. Then in the evening, just start up the grill and dinner's ready in no time.—Helen Carpenter, Albuquerque, New Mexico
