This is an Ellie Krieger recipe I tried a while back. She's the host of Healthy Appetite (formerly on Food Network, now on Cooking Channel). I got this recipe from her cookbook, So Easy.

Chipotle Orange Glazed Pork Chops

2 tbsp honey
2 tbsp orange juice concentrate
1 tsp finely chopped seeded chipotle with ½ tsp adobo
½ tsp salt
4 (¾” thick) center cut pork loin chops (about 8 oz. each)

In a small bowl combine the honey, orange juice concentrate, chipotle, and salt. Marinate chops for several hours.

Preheat grill pan. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side over medium-high heat.

Makes 4 servings.

The marinating wasn't part of the original recipe, but was suggested by online reviewers. I was going to do that, but ended up forgetting (I often forget to marinate things ahead of time, so I have started putting a designation on my meal plan, an "m" with a circle around it in red ink, so that I will realize I need to marinate it). I agree that it should be marinated. It was good, but would have been better if the flavor had infused a little bit.

If you don't have honey on hand, you can use maple syrup in its place.

I have to admit, in this one instance, that I think my picture looks prettier than the one on the website!
