I'm finding that the recipes that resonate most with my readers are the really fast and easy ones. I get it. Really I do. Everybodys lives are so busy that not too many people have the time (or desire) to spend hours the kitchen getting dinner on the table.

It is with that in mind that I bring you this recipe for Apricot Mustard Glazed Pork Chops. With only four simple ingredients, this glaze works well with many types of proteins. If you're looking for something really unique and unexpected, you try it on baby back ribs too...but that's another post for another day. LOL

Today I'm all about these...

Apricot Mustard Glazed Pork Chops

Servings:  4-6     Prep Time: 5 minutes     Cook Time: 30-35 minutes

½ cup apricot preserves
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons low-sodium Teriyaki sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
4-6 boneless pork chops (about 1" thickness)
cooking spray

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

-Pierce the pork chops all over with a paring knife on both sides. Place the chops in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Season both sides of the chops with salt and pepper.

-Whisk the apricot preserves, mustard, Teriyaki sauce and garlic in a small bowl. Liberally brush (or pour) the glaze evenly over the chops. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the center of the chops are no longer pink. Remove the chops from the oven, cover and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

*Note - if you're using the glaze for chicken bake until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

*Note - if you're using the glaze on the grill, don't brush the glaze on the meat until the last 20 minutes of grilling, so it doesn't burn.
