Pork Chops with Orange Sauce

This was way more delicious then I ever thought that it was going to be. The sauce had just a hint of orange and it was so yummy to dip the pork chops into... I love that the weather is getting so beautiful and the hubs doesn't have to grill in the snow anymore!! Bring on summer!!

Pork Chops with Orange Sauce
(recipe found in Taste of Home Healthy Cooking)

1 cup orange juice
1/2 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
2 tablespoons honey
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon grated orange peel
1/4 teaspoon pepper
4 bone-in pork loin chops
1 tablespoon cornstarch

In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients. Pour a scant 1 cup into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork chops. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade for sauce. If grilling the chops, coat grill rack with cooking spray before starting the grill. Drain and discard marinade. Grill chops, covered, over medium heat or broil 4-5 inches from the heat for 4-5 minutes on each side or until a meat thermometer reads 160.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, combine cornstarch and reserved marinade. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve with chops.
