How to Make Oven-Fried Pork Chops

Frying pork chops doesn't sound quick and easy, but this recipe takes less than an hour to prepare. Once you taste the results, you'll never be tempted to just stop for a meal on your way home again.

Directions
1. 
Trim fat from chops. Season chops with salt and pepper. Place chops in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish. In a small bowl, stir together orange juice, balsamic vinegar, honey, and soy sauce; pour over chops. Seal bag; turn to coat chops. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
2. 
Drain lamb, reserving marinade. Pour marinade into a heavy small saucepan. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, about 15 minutes or until reduced to about 1/3 cup; set aside.
3. 
Place chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill to desired doneness, turning and brushing once with glaze halfway through grilling. (Allow 12 to 14 minutes for medium-rare doneness [145 degree F] or 15 to 17 minutes for medium doneness [160 degree F].) Discard any remaining glaze. Makes 4 servings.
