Cilantro BBQ Pork Chops

1/2 cup BBQ sauce
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and finely chopped
1/2 tsp orange zest
2 Tbsp orange juice
4 bone-in pork chops (1lb) 1/2 inch thick

1. Heat grill to medium-high heat.
2. Mix all ingredients except chops. Reserve half of serving with cooked chops.
3. Grill chops 7-8 min on each side or until done. brushing occasionally with remaining sauce.
4. Serve with reserved sauce

OR Use your broiler (that is what I did) Broil chops 6 inches from heat on broiler pan.

I also didn't use any orange zest and added a little extra orange juice. I also only used about 1/2 a jalapeno since my kids don't really like too much spice. And I used all the sauce to brush the pork chops with. It was a hit for the whole family! I got this recipe from Kraft.
