75% less sat fat • 66% less sodium than the original recipe— see the comparison. Here’s a Polynesian-inspired recipe you’ll turn to all summer long. It’s luscious and ready in just 20 minutes.


  • 4 boneless top loin pork chops, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 1/4 pounds total)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 fresh pineapple, peeled and cored
  • 3/4 cup plain fat-free yogurt
  • 1/3 cup low-sugar orange marmalade
  • 2 tablespoons coarsely chopped toasted pecans
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh thyme


  • Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. Cut pineapple crosswise into eight 1/2-inch-thick slices; set aside. Combine yogurt and 2 tablespoons of the marmalade; set aside.
  • For a charcoal grill, grill chops on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 4 minutes. Turn; add pineapple to grill. Brush chops and pineapple with remaining marmalade. Grill 3 to 5 minutes more or until an instant-read thermometer inserted in pork registers 160°F and pineapple has light grill marks, turning pineapple once.
  • Arrange pineapple and chops on serving plates. Spoon yogurt mixture over chops and pineapple; sprinkle with nuts and thyme.
  • Cost-Saving Tip: Instead of using a peeled fresh pineapple from the produce section of the grocery store, use a 15.25-ounce can pineapple slices (juice pack)—it contains 8 slices, perfect for 4 servings.
