Servings
Ingredients Directions
  1. Make marinade by stirring together lemon juice, chicken broth, soy sauce, ginger, mustard, garlic, and cayenne pepper in medium bowl. Place chops in a self-sealing plastic bag; pour marinade over chops; seal bag and refrigerate 8 hours to overnight.
  2. Prepare medium-hot fire in grill; remove chops from marinade and discard marinade. Grill to medium doneness over direct heat about 10-13 minutes, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, prepare Cherry-Orange Sauce. In medium saucepan, saute onion in vegetable oil until tender, about 2-3 minutes; stir in curry powder to blend. Whisk cornstarch with a couple tablespoons of orange juice, set aside.
  4. Stir remaining orange juice and chicken stock into saucepan; stir in cornstarch mixture and cook and stir over medium heat until blended and thickened slightly; stir in dried cherries and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Set aside and keep warm.
  5. To serve, ladle sauce onto plates and top with chops; garnish chops with additional dried cherries if desired.
