  • 1
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In 8-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Cook celery and onion in butter, stirring frequently, until celery is crisp-tender. Stir in rice, almonds, salt and pepper until well blended.
  • 2
    Cut a deep pocket horizontally in each pork chop on the meatiest side of the bone. Press about 1/3 cup stuffing into each pocket. Secure openings with toothpicks. In small bowl, mix apricot preserves, wine and cinnamon.
  • 3
    Cover and grill pork over medium-low heat 40 to 45 minutes, brushing occasionally with preserves mixture and turning 2 or 3 times, until pork is tender and slightly pink when cut near bone on the unstuffed sides of chops. Remove toothpicks. Discard any remaining preserves mixture.

Expert Tips

  • Busy night? Make the stuffing the night before you plan to grill. It'll be one less thing to think about when you serve!
  • Quick-cooking wild rice is faster to prepare than regular wild rice and is equally delicious. If you can't find wild rice, try a rice blend or brown rice instead.
