Pork Chops with Apricot-Tomato Chutney

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/pork_chops_with_apricot_tomato_chutney.html

From EatingWell:  October/November 2005, The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)

Roasted tomatoes have a bright taste that's perfect with apricots - which are themselves a traditional bistro pairing with pork. Altogether, here's a meal that only needs couscous and some steamed cauliflower or green beans on the side.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 35 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the pork chops and cook until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer to an 8-inch-square glass baking dish. Add tomatoes, apricots, lemon juice and crushed red pepper to the skillet and increase heat to medium-high. Bring to a boil and cook, scraping up any browned bits, until the sauce thickens into chutney, 4 to 5 minutes. Pour the chutney over the pork chops.
  3. Bake the pork chops until just cooked through, 8 to 10 minutes. Divide the chops and chutney among 4 plates and sprinkle with thyme.
