This Saucy Pork Chop Recipe is one of my favorites pork chop recipes. The addition of preserves makes a nice tangy sauce over the tender pork chops.
I usually make pork chops at least twice a month. If I am not making these, I love to make my stovetop Dijon pork chops or my brown sugar skillet pork chops.
I call this my Saucy Pork Chop Recipe because, well, that is what it is. We are huge fans of pork chops and most of my stove-top pork chop recipes have a bit of spice and a bit of sauce.
I prefer this style over those with a crispy coating. This pork chop recipe has a nice caramelized coating with the help of a little apricot jam.
Most of my pork chops recipes are stove-top recipes, like my Bourbon Pork Chops. Pork chops with a bourbon molasses glaze.We are a busy family and making pork chops on the stove makes for an easy dinner and easy cleanup.
I love serving these with a little sauce on top, but you can spoon on less if desired. I love making these on the stovetop in about 30 minutes. They go well with potatoes or rice and a side salad.

I LOVE chicken with apricot glaze. So it stands to reason that I'd love this too!
Yes! Chicken with apricot glaze is so good too!
Oh, yummy! I love pork chops 🙂
They are so good, aren't they?
This sounds delicious! My mom makes a ham with apricot glaze so I know pork goes really well with that fruit. I'm going to have to try this out too.
Pork chops are an easy weeknight meal. This recipe is going in my rotation this month
Thanks I hope you love them!
Oh this sounds amazing, apricots and oranges with pork chops. Yes please! I have a parchment chicken recipe that involves apricot jam a tad bit of butter and onion soup mix, it is pretty tasty. I am going to try this next time I make pork chops.

Love using onion soup as a short cut in so many recipes!
I love pork and I am always trying to find a new way to cook it. I haven`t tried this recipe yet.
I love how simple this is! And the extra touch of cinnamon. Cinnamon in savory dishes is fantastic!
Thanks it is really good!
What a brilliant idea, usually I pair pork chops up with apple sauce, however, my sons hate pork chops so I altogether stopped making them. I love them so I think I will make this saucy pork chop recipe up on a kid-free weekend for us adults!
I love them with apple sauce too!
Pork chops is one of my favorite meats. We only have a couple ways to make it so I am looking forward to giving this method a go.
Thanks and I hope you love it!
