Prepare the marinade and let these sit in the fridge a day before you're ready to serve. When you're ready they take all of 10-15 minutes in the broiler and they're done! Light and delicious lemon garlic and tarragon is a great combination for pork and will make the whole family happy. It's even great for serving company! I planted tarragon several years ago and it comes back every year so it's great to have fresh herbs whenever I make this, which is often.

How To Make lemon garlic chops

  • 1
    For marinade, in a small bowl combine lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and tarragon. Place pork chops in a 1-gallon self-sealing plastic bag; pour marinade over chops; seal bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6-8 hours or overnight.
  • 2
    Drain chops, discarding marinade. Place chops on rack in broiler pan so the chops are 4 to 5 inches from heat.
  • 3
    Sprinkle the chops with a little paprika. Broil for 5-6 minutes or until brown. Turn chops and sprinkle with paprika. Broil for 5-6 minutes more or until chops are just done. Sprinkle with a little lemon pepper and serve.
