Preparation Time5 min

Cooking Time21 min


  • 4 boneless pork loin chops
  • 1/2 cup orange marmalade
  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • Dried thyme, salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 cups Minute instant brown rice
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 5 scallions, chopped


  1. To make the rice pilaf, bring the chicken broth up to a boil then stir in the instant brown rice, walnuts and cranberries then cover the pot, lower the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes. Turn off the heat and let it stand for 3 minutes covered before fluffing with a fork and stirring in the scallions.

  2. To make the pork chops, in a medium bowl stir together the apricot preserves, orange marmalade, soy sauce and chicken broth and set aside.

  3. Season the pork chops with dried thyme, salt and pepper to taste. Sear them in a large nonstick skillet sprayed with nonstick, over a medium high heat for 3 minutes per side. The chops should be lightly golden.
