Herb-Roasted Pork Chops

One of the best cooks I ever dated was D. His parents owned a restaurant and he taught me a lot about seasoning. Pork chops were his favorite food. He used to put flour, seasoning salt, garlic, and black pepper in a plastic store bag and coat the pork chops. The other day, I decided to do something a little different with my pork chops and ran across this diabetic friendly recipe. I hope you enjoy this refreshing pork recipe. It reminded me a little of my Bacon-Wrapped Pork Tenderloin recipe – minus the bacon. I think it would taste great with a scampi pasta side dish.
