Pork, that other white meat! We love pork chops and pork cutlets in my house. This recipe is a staple in my home, my family loves it and I love how quick it is to whip up on busy weeknights! These Breaded Pork Cutlets are also on constant rotation in my house when I want to switch things up.

For these pork chops, you can let the pork marinate as little as 15 minutes or as long as overnight. If you wish to use a pork loin instead of pork chops, this marinade would also be great. Sear the outside of the pork loin then bake it in the oven until cooked through in the center.

What To Serve With Garlic-Lime Pork Chops

Served them with cilantro lime rice on the side and some avocado slices, this would also be great with a big salad.

Garlic-Lime Marinade Ingredients

The simple pork chop marinade is simple, and made with just 5 ingredients you probably already have on hand:

  • garlic
  • cumin
  • chili powder
  • paprika
  • and, of course lime

Can you use this Garlic-Lime Marinade on chicken?

Sure! This would be great on chicken breasts, chicken thighs or even to roast a whole bird.

  1. This was so good, just the right amount of tang for us. Marinated about 7 hours and then grilled, so moist and tender, wishing we did more than 4.  There will be a next time!

  2. This was so delicious! Easy and quick! Yet another wonderful recipe from Skinny Taste! 

  3. This is a very flavorful option that my husband and son love as much as I do! It is tough to find a meal that we can all agree on and this was delicious. My 11 year old said “I could eat a million of these!”

  4. Broil HI or Lo

    • This is sooo good and fresh tasting. Even decided to make this as meal when we went backcountry camping. The suggested sides pair perfectly too!

  5. Amazing, easy, and DELICIOUS! I appreciate the broiler directios for those of us without a grill pan or outside grill. Thank you!

    • This is sooo good and fresh tasting. Even decided to make this as meal when we went backcountry camping. The suggested sides pair perfectly too!

  6. Can you make this in the crock pot?

  7. Can you cook these in the oven or on the stove?

    • I don’t see why not. I adapt grill recipes for the stove/oven all the time. I would use a very hot pan with olive oil and sear each side. Then cook for several minutes

    • I cook them on the stove in a frying pan! Just a little olive oil in the pan works great!

  8. Do you think this would work with turkey cutlets??

  9. This is our new favorite recipe. I use boneless skinless chicken breast because it is free on WW purple. I honestly think I may like the chicken better than the pork anyhow. We usually have it with a fresh made guacamole and the skinnytaste cilantro lime rice. SO GOOD! 

  10. Spiced very well!

  11. Flavor was great but dry.  We grilled the chops (i purchased bone-in chops), so I’m not sure why they turned out dry. 

  12. looks really yummy..can’t wait to make them

  13. Amazing! Made this using pork cut aS fajita meat (it’s all I had).   I made this with the cilantro lime rice from your blog and some black beans.   After cooked we made a bowls with the rice, beans and pork.  Definitely will be making again!
