These delicious Pork Chops and Peaches are the easiest and most tasty that I’ve ever had. On your table in less than 20 minutes and tell me who doesn’t like that!?!
I can’t help it but think that bright peachy color just says everything summer to me. My entire family loves peaches and living in Georgia which is known as “The Peach State,” is so fitting for this combo. I can’t think of a better way to get in those 5 daily fruit allowances than blending smoothies. This way.. it feels more like a fun treat to them. The way these two flavors blend together and the thickness of the glaze when it’s drizzled over those chops is just plain peachy!
Thicker pork chops will definitely require an increase in cooking time, approximately 6-8 minutes on each side. The key to keeping your chops flavorful and juicy is a dual cooking method approach, utilizing both a skillet and oven. A quick sear on each side in a hot skillet, adds flavor, and as equally important, keeps the natural pork juices inside when the pork chops are transferred to the oven to cook the rest of the way through.
So simple to make and really these pork chops are an ideal dinner after a busy workday. Serve it with a simple side salad for a quick and fresh weeknight meal and your night is complete.
