Balsamic Marinated Grilled Pork Chops
Since I am currently doing Weight Watchers, I have added in the points values for you for this recipe. The marinade adds tons of flavor with very little point value. I calculated the recipe in the Weight Watchers Recipe Builder since I am currently on the plan. I’m not associated with Weight Watchers, but I love the program and love sharing recipes that have been adapted to be healthier.
