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. If you make this  using tenderloin, at what temp and how long do you bake it for? Also, do you double marinade for tenderloin? I don’t eat pork, but hubby loves it. So, I wanted to do something special for him. 

  2. Fast and easy! I marinated for about 15 minutes in a baggie and then cooked in my air fryer. I added about a tsp of olive oil because I didn’t know how the marinade would cover the pork chops. GREAT flavor and will make again!

  3. I used this on four leftover grilled pork chops. Cut them into bite size pieces, put in a ziploc bag and tossed in all the ingredients as listed. Let it sit in the fridge for about 7 hours. Cooked on the stove in a little oil until heated through and had pork taco bowls for dinner. Everyone loved it!

  4. I’m not sure if I’ve rated this or not, but I’ve made it several times over the last couple of years. It’s just delicious with the tang of lime balancing the warm chili flavor and bite of the garlic. I honestly don’t really measure it anymore, just zest and juice a lime, crush several cubes of garlic. OK, the spices I do measure, but we’re a family of six, so its a teaspoon of each. I like to marinate for most of the day, make sure to generously sprinkle with kosher salt and grill my bone in chops. Fantastic recipe!

    Made this tonight on both chicken breast and pork chops. I doubled the recipe and it covered 6 pieces perfectly. We used crushed garlic from the jar which had a wetness to it so it was perfect for wetting the spices into a paste. .   We baked ours on 400 for approx. 25 mins and paired it with parsnip frie and cole slaw. .  Delicious!  Thank you SkinnyTaste. 

  6. 10 minutes to cook pork chops? I have never heard of cooking them for only 10 minutes. Most recipes say 18. Is it because of the lime marinade that it takes less time?

  7. Gina,
    Could you provide air fryer directions for this recipe. We can’t turn our oven on till it cools off. 

  8. These were tasty. It tough and dry. I broiled them for 5 minutes per side. Next time I’ll cook less time. 

  9. My whole family loved this! We don’t do a lot of pork but I think this will be added to our rotation!

      I made this recipe with boneless skinless chicken breasts tonight and it was delicious. I cooked it a little longer than when I made it with the pork chops though.

        I didn’t broil the chicken though. I pan fried it in a skillet on my stovetop.

  10. These were delicious. So easy. I was a bit worried because it didn’t seem like a marinade, more of a rub but it was perfect. Juicy and quick!

  11. I made this recipe with a pork loin instead of chops.  I seared the outside and then baked it in the oven.  Turned out great!  Wonderful flavors 🙂

      Yes you can but do not cook for too long as this will make the Tenderloin hard. Add a little butter just before you bake them or broil them.

  12. Tried this tonight with the chipotle cilantro lime rice and fried cabbage with onions and fresh garlic it was delicious! Thanks for the awesome recipe!!

    I LOVED this. One pork chop was thicker and it turned out the best
    I broiled them in the oven instead of grilled. Honestly, maybe my favourite pork chop recipe ever. Well done.
