Baked chops take on a new look and flavor with sweet potatoes, orange marmalade, cranberries and spices.
cup orange marmalade
tablespoons butter or margarine, melted
teaspoon ground cinnamon
teaspoon ground ginger
tablespoons dried cranberries
medium dark-orange sweet potatoes, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch slices
cup Original Bisquick™ mix
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)
tablespoons soy sauce or water
boneless pork loin chops, 1/2 inch thick (1 lb)
Heat oven to 350°F. In medium bowl, mix marmalade, butter, cinnamon and ginger. Stir in cranberries and sweet potatoes; set aside.
In shallow dish, mix Bisquick mix and red pepper. In another shallow dish, place soy sauce. Dip pork into soy sauce, then coat with Bisquick mixture. Spray 10-inch skillet with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Cook pork in skillet 6 to 8 minutes, turning once, until coating is brown.
Place pork in ungreased 13x9-inch (3-quart) glass baking dish. Arrange sweet potato mixture around pork. Bake 40 to 45 minutes or until sweet potatoes are tender and pork is no longer pink in center.
Looking for a shortcut? Use a 17- or 18-ounce can of vacuum-packed sweet potatoes, cut crosswise in half, for the fresh sweet potatoes.
Use dried cherries or raisins instead of the cranberries.
Follow cook times for pork carefully. Today's pork is lean and requires shorter cooking times. Overcooking pork will make it tough.
