Spiced Pork Chops With Apple Chutney

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Renegade Chef

From the March 2009 Cooking Light. This makes a lot of chutney, so in the future I will halve the chutney recipe. The porkchop portion alone would make a good sandwich. The most time-consuming aspect of this recipe is dicing the apples.

This was a pretty good recipe. My husband and I both really liked the pork seasoning... we didn't have chipotle chile pepper so we used chili powder instead and it tasted fantastic. Very flavorful. I did halve the chutney recipe (used 1 large Fuji apple) and it was the perfect portion for both of us. Not sure what I did wrong, but there was no liquid in the chutney so I couldn't simmer or boil. I just let it cook for about 10 minutes over medium heat until the apples were soft and tender. I served this with recipe #368944. Thanks for sharing!
