Honey Lime Pork Chops with Grilled Peaches

Take advantage of summer's bounty before it's gone until next year.  Grilled peaches make this pork chop recipe extra special.  Brushing with a mixture of honey and ginger enhances the natural sweetness in the peaches.

  1. Can this be made in a skillet or in the oven?

    1. I think it can be done in either skillet or oven, you won't get the same caramelization as on the grill. For skillet, I would use and overn proof skillet sear the chops on both sides, then pour over remaining marinade and place in 400 degree oven and cook to desired doneness. I would do peaches separately in baking dish, bake in oven until tender.
