Whiskey Glazed Baked Pork Chops Recipe

We had our first BBQ at our new place in May 2016. Actually, it was our first hosted BBQ ever. We weren't sure what types of drinks everyone would like so we got a wide variety of non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages.

We ended up with lots of extra hard liquor, which we really don't drink. I've never been one to cook with alcohol either, since we never had it on hand. Well, now we've got a ton.

As I took inventory of the frozen proteins we had left, I saw six thick-cut, bone-in pork chops. I was never really a bone-in type of gal until a few years ago. I always thought the bones just got in the way. Now, I prefer bone-in pork chops.

For some reason, it suddenly clicked to use the Whiskey as a marinade for these beautiful, thick-cut, bone-in pork chops after years of mediocre seasonings. Either Applebee's or T.G.I. Fridays features Jack Daniel's Whiskey flavored proteins on their menu. I can't remember which, but I knew the flavor worked well when I tried it.

Unfortunately, it wasn't until after I made chili last night that the idea came to me. I make chili all the time and though I added ground pork sausage to the mix this time, I was craving something different. I couldn't wait to try these whiskey glazed baked pork chops.

The mister is off this week, so shortly after lunch time, I told him to look up a few recipes for whiskey pork chops, use what we have on hand and marinate them. Here's what we came up with!
