Spiced Pork Chops with Apple Chutney

Spiced Pork Chops with Apple ChutneyI found this Cooking Light recipe recently and couldn’t wait to make it. I love fruit with pork and knew this recipe would be tasty and healthy. I adapted the recipe by cooking the chutney for much longer than the recipe called for and seasoned the pork with regular chile powder instead of chipotle chile powder. I loved the flavor of the sweet apples with the tender and juicy pork. This was easy to make, had little clean-up, and was loved by my family and our friends that were over for dinner.

How to Make Spiced Pork Chops with Apple Chutney:


  • 1 tbsp butter

  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
