Baked Pork Chops

Brown rice or steamed broccoli pairs perfectly with this mix of savory and sweet fruit flavor.


Pork Chops

  • 4 boneless pork chops (about 3 ounces each)

  • ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1 medium orange, rinsed and zested

  • ½ tablespoon olive oil


  • ¼ cup low-sodium chicken broth

  • 1 medium apple, peeled and grated (about 1 cup)

  • ½ cinnamon stick

  • 1 bay leaf

  • ½ cup dried cranberries

  • ½ cup 100% orange juice


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  2. To prepare pork chops, season pork chops with pepper and orange zest.

  3. In large sauté pan, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook until browned on one side, about 2 minutes. Turn and brown 2 minutes.

  4. Remove pork chops from pan, place on nonstick baking sheet and bake 10 minutes to a minimum internal temperature of 160 degrees.

  5. To make sauce, add chicken broth to sauté pan and stir to loosen brown bits from pork chops. Set aside.

  6. In small saucepan over medium heat, cook grated apples, cinnamon stick and bay leaf until apples begin to soften.

  7. Add cranberries, orange juice and reserved broth. Bring to boil then lower heat to gentle simmer.

  8. Simmer 10 minutes, or until cranberries are plump and apples are tender. Remove cinnamon stick.

  9. Peel orange and cut into eight sections. Serve one pork chop with ¼ cup sauce and two orange segments.
