Orange Glazed Pork Chops + Rice and Chickpeas

We are having company tonight, so it’s time to bring out the class. Kidding, he’s only 7 [which means this meal is kid approved] and has homework to complete.

We have spent the last few weeks cooking through our meat stocked up in the freezer, this week we have pork to conquor – I love pork, it is so yummy, versatile and cooks up very quickly. 

There are a couple of important items to note before heading out on our dinner journey:

1. Make sure to use a pan that can go from Stovetop  to Oven, it helps with the creation of the orange sauce and saves cleaning another pan, you’re welcome.
2. If you are placing a pan in the oven with a long handle, it still gets REALLY hot…even after 15 minutes of sitting after cooling… just saying, use great caution!

Prep: 6 minutes
Cook: ~40 minutes
Total: ~50 minutes

4 Pork Chops
1 T Olive Oil
Salt + Pepper
All Spice
Ground Cloves

1/2 C Orange Juice
2 T Brown Sugar
2 T Orange Marmalade
1 T Vinegar

Rice
Orange Juice
Water
1 Can Chickpeas, drained
