So Easy: Chipotle Orange Glazed Pork Chops

This recipe is the first I made from my new Ellie Krieger cookbook, and boy did it impress! For such a minimal list of ingredients, I was really pleased with the burst of flavor these pork chops had and my husband loves that it is yet another reason to use his favorite ingredient, canned chipotle chiles in adobo. Okay, maybe not his favorite, but pretty close! And I love that on a busy weeknight, this lovely and substantial meal can be whipped up in less than 20 minutes-seriously!

And might I suggest pairing with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans sauteed with shallots? Just a thought. And most importantly, enjoy!

Chipotle Orange Glazed Pork Chops

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
2 tablespoons orange juice concentrate
1 teaspoon finely chopped seeded chipotle with 1/2 teaspoon adobo
4 (3/4-inch thick) center cut pork loin chops (about 8 ounces each)
1/2 teaspoons salt

In a small bowl combine the maple syrup, orange juice concentrate and chipotle.
Preheat grill pan. Sprinkle both sides of the chops with salt. Brush 1 side of chops generously with glaze. Place on grill pan glaze side down. Brush other side with glaze. Cook 3 to 4 minutes per side over medium-high heat
