Herb Lemon Pork Chops

While this may be a 30 Minute Meal, there are only about 5 minutes of hands-on prep time. That means that while the pork chops are practically cooking themselves, you can throw together a salad and a pot of rice. Or just sit back and relax, glass of wine in hand.

Bone-In or Boneless Pork Chops, either will work well.

Coat the pork chops with a mixture of oregano, thyme, rosemary, paprika and minced cloves, and toss it all with some fresh lemon juice. Let it all rest for 15 minutes while the broiler heats, then cook for about 10 minutes.

These chops are fantastic straight out of the oven, but also work really well served cold. The second time I made these, I did so first thing in the morning, then stored the pork chops in the fridge for the day. When dinner time rolled around, I thinly sliced the chops and served them on top of a green salad with some quinoa, crumbled feta cheese and a balsamic vinaigrette.
