Broiled Pork Chops woth Apricot-Mango Chutney

Preparation time 30 minutes

Ingredients:

1 mango, peeled and diced into ¼ inch cubes
½ cup of water
1 cup apricot preserves
¼ cup cognac
½ teasp. minced fresh ginger, peeled
4 boneless, center-cut, pork chops, about ¾ of an inch thick

Preparation:

The apricot-mango chutney can be prepared a day in advance and refrigerated. Just bring it to room temperature about an hour before using. If you are making the chutney the same day as you plan to use it, then it can be prepared while you are pre-heating the oven and broiling the pork chops.

1.    Add the mango and water to a small sauce pan and bring to a boil. Once it boils, lower the heat to medium and cook for 8 to10 minutes, until that the water is substantially absorbed and the mango becomes mushy.
2.    Remove the sauce pan from the heat and stir in the apricot preserve, a little at a time, until well blended with the mango.
3.    Add the cognac and ginger to the apricot-mango mixture and bring to a boil, reduce the heat to medium-low, let simmer an additional 8 minutes.
4.    Place the pork chops in a broiling pan on the top shelf of the oven and broil for 7 to 8 minutes on each side. Spoon the chutney onto one side of the chops and broil an additional 1 minute, taking care not to let the chutney burn.
5.    Serve with additional chutney spooned over the chops.
