Chipotle Orange Glazed Pork Chops

I am addicted to the Food Network and the Cooking Channel. I love Ellie's recipes and have revamped my blog and this will be the first recipe I cook for the whole family, Healthified!! LOL Is that even a word? :)


* 2 tablespoons 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

I will serve Maple Squash Puree as the side veggie on this dish.

* 2 (12-ounce) packages frozen cooked butternut squash or winter squash
* 1/3 cup water
* 1 tablespoon butter
* 2 tablespoons maple syrup
* Salt


Put the frozen squash and water into a large saucepan. Cook over a high heat until the Cover and cook over a medium heat, stirring frequently, until squash is thawed, about 10 minutes.

Whisk in the butter and maple syrup and season with salt, to taste.
