Five Ingredient Apricot Mustard Glazed Pork Chops

I’m finding that the recipes that resonate most with my readers are the really fast and easy ones. I get it. Really I do. Everybody’s lives are so busy that not too many people have the time (or desire) to spend hours the kitchen getting dinner on the table.

It is with that in mind that I bring you this recipe for Apricot Mustard Glazed Pork Chops. With only four simple ingredients, this glaze works well with many types of proteins. If you’re looking for something really unique and unexpected, you try it on baby back ribs too…but that’s another post for another day. LOL

Today I’m all about these…

Five Ingredient Apricot Mustard Glazed Pork Chops

Servings:  4-6     Prep Time: 5 minutes     Cook Time: 30-35 minutes

½ cup apricot preserves
3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons low-sodium Teriyaki sauce
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper
4-6 boneless pork chops (about 1″ thickness)
cooking spray

-Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

-Pierce the pork chops all over with a paring knife on both sides. Place the chops in a baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray. Season both sides of the chops with salt and pepper.

-Whisk the apricot preserves, mustard, Teriyaki sauce and garlic in a small bowl. Liberally brush (or pour) the glaze evenly over the chops. Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 30 minutes or until the center of the chops are no longer pink. Remove the chops from the oven, cover and allow to sit for 10 minutes before serving.

*Note – if you’re using the glaze for chicken bake until the chicken reaches an internal temperature of 165 degrees.

*Note – if you’re using the glaze on the grill, don’t brush the glaze on the meat until the last 20 minutes of grilling, so it doesn’t burn.

  4. That glaze looks so delicious! I always keep some in the fridge for recipes like this! Delish and easy…my kind of recipe!

  5. This is fabulous, I'm such a pork girl. My mom was always making pork chops when I was younger. This is a lovely recipe & those towels are too cute.

  6. I always enjoy a sweet-tangy combination like this. Apricot preserves with Dijon and Teriyaka sauce? Yes, please!!!

  7. That glaze, it just calls out to me. I love easy recipes too, sometimes you need ones that you don't need to think about when you make dinner but always come out tasting fantastic.

  8. I've made a sauce similar to this before, and also switched it up with different preserve flavors. It's always a hit…and so easy!

  9. I love to cook but simple and easy recipes are still my "go-to" during the week! This could totally happen after work one day this week!
