This Grilled Pork Chops with Cinnamon Peach Marinade recipe was brought to us by our friend Kari from Craft Create Cook. I love when my friends share healthy recipes here on our site! So often, I get stuck in the rut of cooking the same things over and over again. Others often have different versions of classic foods, and this is an ideal example.

The guys really love pork chops, and while I am not a big fan, I grab them on sale at Aldi all the time. Yes, I am the odd duck that isn’t a big fan of pork. So, making pork chops isn’t always a favorite for me. Kari made this recipe recently, and I decided it had to be shared here since it is a healthy and tasty option on Weight Watchers or any diet.

Living in Michigan means that grilling outside in the winter isn’t so easy. So, if you don’t have access to a grill outside, you’ll want to cook these indoors year round. I have a Chef’s Choice Indoor Grill and love it, but another great option is the Hamilton Beach Indoor Grill. They are both great tools, and give you a chance to grill any time of year, regardless of the weather. Another popular option is the Tupperware Micropro Grill. It’s a wonderful multi-use tool and cooks or grills right in the microwave.

For only 6 SmartPoints per pork chop, you can serve with a large salad or steamed veggies and still fit into your daily points allowance.
