There’s something about pork that goes really well with sweet flavors. Just think about it: honey-glazed ham, pork chops and apple sauce, ham and pineapple on Hawaiian pizza. In almost every famous pork recipe, there is that little bite of sweetness that evens out the dish. And the honey in these glazed pork chops does just that: it offsets the salty, savory flavor of the pork, perfectly rounding out the flavor of the meat.
1Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Coat large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops. Cook until brown, turning once. Remove chops. Place chops in 9x13-inch baking dish.
2Combine brown sugar and honey in small bowl. Microwave on HIGH (100%) for 20 seconds; stir to combine. Spoon half of the honey mixture over tops of chops, spreading evenly.
3Bake, uncovered, for 15 minutes. Turn chops; spoon remaining honey mixture over chops, spreading evenly. Bake until internal temperature is 160 degrees F. about 15 to 20 minutes. To serve, spoon pan drippings over chops.
