Pork Chops with Honey-Orange Glaze

I jumbled 3 separate recipes & came up with a dinner idea, last night, lol! It turned out very orange-y and sweet, it was very good & we had no left overs! This is the recipe from Pillsbury, the one I followed closest. I tweaked this to suit what we had.

1 lb Boneless Pork Loin Chops (we used thin-cut)
3 Tblsp Worcestershire sauce
1/3 cup Honey
1 Tblsp Grated Orange Peel
1/4 tsp Salt

(We had juice & navel oranges, so I used garlic powder, juice and zest from both oranges & marinated them, overnight. Also, we didn't have Worcestershire sauce, so I used the same amount of Dale's. I also added 2 Tblsp of fresh orange juice to the honey-orange sauce. It produced a very distinct & floral orange flavor!)

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

In shallow glass baking dish, place pork chops. 
Brush 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce over both sides of each. 
Let stand at room temperature 15 minutes to marinate.

In 2-quart saucepan, mix remaining 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce, the honey, orange peel and salt until well blended. 
Heat to boiling over high heat. 
Reduce heat to medium; boil 1 minute.

Spoon half of honey mixture evenly over pork, place pork in oven, covered, for 15 minutes. 
Uncover. Turn pork & baste in some of the sauce. Cook for another 15 minutes.

We ate this pork sliced, over rice & mixed veggies. I made a double-batch of sauce to pour over the rice, it was great!
