Trim off extra fat around edges of pork chops. Set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together lemon juice, honey, soy sauce, sherry and minced garlic. Stir well, to combine. This is the marinade.
Place pork chops in a large gallon size re-sealable plastic bag. Pour marinade over the chops. Seal bag, then turn to cover all sides of chops with marinade. Place sealed bag on a plate (do this in case the bag leaks), then place in refrigerator for between 4-24 hours to marinate. Occasionally turn the bag over, to fully coat each side of the pork.
When ready to cook, preheat oven broiler (or outside BBQ grill). If using broiler, place a piece of aluminum foil or parchment paper on a 9x13 cookie sheet. Spray a wire rack (oven safe) with non-stick cooking spray, then place pork chops on the rack (by doing these steps, it will make your cleanup a lot easier). Save the marinade left in bag.
Cook under broiler or on grill for 12-15 minutes, turning chops at least once, and baste occasionally with the remaining marinade while the chops are cooking. Cook pork chops until they reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees. Do not overcook, as this will dry out the chops. When done, discard remaining marinade. Transfer pork chops from wire rack to serving plate and serve.
