Grilled Orange Pork Chops and Curried Butternut Squash


4 Boneless pork-chops

Juice from 1 medium orange

Zest from orange

1 tablespoon of lemon pepper seasoning

2 teaspoons of curry powder

2 lbs of butternut squash purchased pre cubed


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place butternut squash on a baking pan and sprinkle curry powder on top. Baked for 25 minutes.

Zest the orange with citrus zester. Place orange zest to the side. Mix fresh juice from one medium orange into a zip lock bag and lemon pepper seasoning. Place pork chops into the bag and marinate for 25 minutes or overnight.

Preheat grill to medium high heat and grill for 6 minutes on each side. I use a heat thermometer and pull of my proteins 5 degrees before suggested cook temp to keep meat moist.

Measure out to portions for your meal. Mine are 4 oz of pork chops and 1 cup of butternut squash. Sprinkle orange zest on top and enjoy.
