Place pork chops in a dish to marinate them, sprinkle the lemon pepper on each side of the pork chops. In a small bowl add green onions, lime zest, lime juice, oil and garlic then mix together. TIP… I like to use a garlic press to mince my garlic.

Spoon the oil mixture on top of the pork chops, cover with plastic wrap put in the refrigerator and  marinate for 1- 3 hours.

Heat a large skillet to medium high heat, brown the pork chops on  each side for about 1 minute.   TIP ~ I normally scrap off the onions while I brown the pork chops.. them add them back on top before I bake them in the oven.

Take off the stove top and finish cooking on the skillet in a 375 degree oven for 20-25 minutes.  Till pork is at least 145 degrees in the middle. I love my meat thermometer  for cooking pork, helps me know I cooked it enough before it get to over cooked and though.

Almond grape chicken salad recipeThis is one of my families favorites.   I made it last night for dinner with the grapes I got for only $1.29 per lb at Albertsons.  I also made some Grape Salsa.

Almond Chicken Salad with Grapes Recipe

  • 1 pound Diced Cooked Chicken Breast
  • 3 green onions diced
  • 1 cup red or green grapes halved
  • 3 stalks of celery diced small
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds
  • 1/2 cup mayo
  • 1/2 cup sour cream

Combine, salt and pepper to taste, best if it has a few hours to chill, for the flavors to blend.  Keep in refrigerator and serve on a roll, tortilla wrap, bagel…. or just plain bread.  Either way it is fabulous. This my personal favorite, hope you enjoy it too.

You can cook the chicken breast any way you want.  But I prefer to roast it in the oven or do a quick boil…. but if I boil it I always add a little onion, celery, and garlic to the water.  Gives it a much better flavor.

Once the chicken is cooked thru, cooking time will vary on size of breast. I normally cook them 25-35 minutes.  Take them out, and let them rest on a cutting board to cool.

Once they have cooled down some (normally 10 minutes) chop them into small bite sized pieces. Put them into the refrigerator to cool even more.

Chop your veggies, add all the ingredients in a bowl.

Salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
