  • Prep: 20 min. Bake: 20 min. orange pork chops

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 5 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 can (6 ounces) frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce

Directions

  • Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. In a non-stick skillet coated with cooking spray, cook chops for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned.
