Juicy, tender pork chops marinated in the most delicious lemon basil sauce make a perfect weeknight meal.

This year I started growing basil in my kitchen and it is the first plant that I haven't completely killed. In fact, I am happy to report it is growing like a weed and I am up to my eyeballs in fresh basil. Naturally I am always on the lookout for ways to use it and this Lemon Basil Pork Chop recipe seemed like the perfect way.

The marinade is made with plenty of fresh basil. garlic, lemon juice, and olive oil. You can also throw in more frrsh herbs if you like. Rosemary is delicious. The pork chops are quickly marinated in this mixture to add flavor and make the meat more tender. Then you can cook it in the oven or on the grill. Drizzle a little extra sauce on top and its a delicious meal.

1

Add the basil, garlic, lemon juice, olive oil, salt, and pepper to a food processor or blender. Save about one fourth of the marinade for drizzling on top. Use the remaining the pork in this mixture for 45-60 minutes.

2

When ready to cook, remove the pork from the marinade letting excess drip off. To bake, preheat the oven to 425. Place the pork chops in a glass baking dish sprayed with cooking spray and cook for 15-20 minutes until cooked through. To grill, cook for 4-6 minutes per side until cooked through.

3

Drizzle the saved marinade on top.
