Pan-fried Pork Chops with Fruit Chutney
2 tsp olive oil
½ cup chopped onion
1 pear, cut in bite-size pieces
1 apple, cut in bite-size pieces
2/3 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
1/3 cup water
4 center-cut pork chops, about 1 inch thick (8 oz each)
¼ tsp each of garlic powder, salt, and pepper
1. Prepare fruit chutney: Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add onion and cook, stirring, for 2 minutes. Add pear, apple, cranberries, and water. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, 10 minutes, until fruit is tender and saucy.
2. Meanwhile sprinkle pork chops on both sides with garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
3. Coat a large nonstick or cast-iron skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Place over medium-high heat, add chops and cook about 5 minutes per side, turning once. Transfer to plates and let stand 5 minutes.
4. Season chutney with salt and pepper; serve with the chops.
