Saucy Salsa Baked Pork Chops - With a Twist !

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 45 mins

Tender, juicy and a bit sweet and spicy ! I looked for a recipe here that would incorporate what I had on hand for my pork chops but couldn't find one. So I came up with this! I made this in about 50 minutes (including prep time) so it was as fast as it was tasty ! The marmalade is a bit different but it really did add a nice sweetness to offset the spicy salsa. Hope you enjoy it as much as we did !

  1. Heat your oven to 375°F.
  2. Heat your frying pan to medium.
  3. Add the oil to the pan.
  4. Add the pork chops. Season with salt, pepper and garlic powder.

  6. In a separate bowl, combine the salsa (I used mild but you can choose the heat that you like) and marmalade.

  10. Turn the chops 1/2 way and baste with the sauce.
  11. Serve with the extra sauce over the chops!

I signed up at this site just so I could tell you that this is a delish dish! I used maple syrup in place of the marm. Chops were so juicy and tasty! Thanks!

This was super tasty! I used 1" thick chops and probably could have taken them out before 40 minutes as they were *slightly* overcooked. I used mild salsa and peach preserves instead of orange (what I had on hand; and I have another recipe with pork, salsa and peach that is delish so I knew it would work as a sub :) ). Skipped the onion and served with leftover recipe #36346 (made with orange juice instead of lemon). Also, instead of transferring to another dish, I just added the salsa to the chops in the skillet and put the skillet in the oven (which worked perfect - but my skillet is oven safe). Made a tasty dinner! Thanks for sharing!

Delicious! I used Recipe #59635 and added corn syrup instead of marmalade. The salsa made it too spicy for my son, next time I'll leave it off of his :-) They reached temperature after 30 minutes in the oven.
