Quick Apricot Pork Chops

Marge often gives this sweet apricot treatment to the tender chops she pulls out of the freezer the night before. Then she can have supper on the table in less than a half hour.

    The chops were tender and good. I would prefer a bit more flavor. Next time I will add some ginger.

    I browned the chops then baked for 45 minutes. The meat was very tender and I plan to use canned peaches next time for a change of pace.

    Don't know whether Rockamama noticed, but the recipe calls for "cooked" pork chops - as it is originally from Quick Cooking. If they are precooked, they would also be browned. For uncooked chops I usually give a very similar recipe I have 45 minutes at 350 degrees. My recipe calls for pineapple juice, honey and Heinz 57 sauce. Adding the sauce ingredients only for the first 30 minutes and the pineapple tidbits for the last 15. I added some Heinz 57 to this recipe as well.

    These were good but cooking time was too short. The amount of liquid from the apricots prevented the chops from browning.
