A delicious marinade for grilled chicken or pork chops!

Top Review by Karen J

This marinade was a hit in my household! I wanted a marinade for pork chops that wasn't overwhelming with soy sauce. I used 7-up for the lemon-lime beverage and did substitute red pepper as I didn't have cayenne. I used four center cut chops and marinated them in a gallon zip lock for 6 hrs, turning once. They came off the grill moist with a nice little zippy flavor. Can't wait to try it with chicken breasts. I will definitely be using this recipe again. YUM!!
