Garlic Lime Marinated Pork Chops

Last night's dinner recipe is ANOTHER fabulous dinner courtesy of  Gina's Weight Watcher Recipes.  Again, I am not following the WW PLAN, however she has healthy  meal selections, perfect to make on a busy weeknight. This can also be thrown on the grill and you can use a pork tenderloin for the same recipe. 

Garlic Lime Marinated Pork Chops

The lime zest gives these chops an extra zing. Adjust the seasoning to your liking. Make these in the broiler or on the grill. Serve this with cilantro lime rice on the side.
Servings: 4 • Cook Time: 8-10 minutes  Points: 6 ww points

  • 4 (6 oz) lean boneless pork chops
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 lime, juice of
  • lime zest
  • salt and fresh pepper
Trim any fat off pork. In a large bowl season pork with garlic, cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Squeeze lime juice and some zest from the lime and let it marinade at least 20 minutes.


Line broiler pan with foil for easy clean up. Place pork chops on the broiler pan and broil about 4-5 minutes on each side or until nicely browned.
