Healthy, Easy, Yummy Pork Chops

I found this recipes several years ago, and I'd forgotten about it for a while. But I've recently re-discovered it, and I can't believe I ever forgot how yummy it is! And it's also pretty healthy, so that's a bonus. I remember that ever time I made it I felt like a good wife. I totally recommend this to everyone! It's so good!

Simply Glazed Pork Chops
1 acn (14.5oz) fat free reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 cups instant brown rice, uncooked
3 cups small broccoli florets
4 bone-in pork chops (1-1/4 lb.), 1/2 inch thick
1/4 cup KRAFT light CATALINA reduced fat dressing
1/4 cup orange juice
3 Tbsp. maple-flavored or pancake syrup
2 Tbsp. sliced PLANTERS Almonds, toasted (optional)

BRING broth to boil in medium saucepan on medium-high heat; stir in rice. Cover. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer 3 minutes. Add broccoli; stir. Cover; simmer an additional 2 min. Remove from eat; let stand 5 minutes or until broth is completely absorbed.

MEANWHILE, heat large nonstick skillet sprayed with cooking spray on medium heat. Add chops; cook 4 min. on each side or until lightly browned on both sides and cooked through (160 F). Remove from skillet; cover to keep warm.

ADD dressing, orange juice and syrup to skillet. Bring to boil on medium-high heat; cook 3 min. or until sauce is reduced by one half. Serve chops and rice drizzled with the sauce; sprinkle with almonds.

Kraft Kitchen Tips- For even browning, ensure good contact with heat source by pressing meat onto surface of skillet with spatula.

Substitute- Substitute boneless chops for bone-in pork chops.

I made mine with boneless chops and no almonds and it was great! Give it a try! And if you have any great recipes for me please share!

  2. It is really good! Also, don't be afraid to double the sauce at the end because there never seems to be enough. I checked out Redo 101 and loved it! That house on Hunter's Grove is amazing! I'm following you too!
