Make dinner quick and delicious with Maple Cinnamon Pork Chops!
Lately, I have really felt like we need to mix it up a bit. We have a lot of chicken, so I decided to try out these Maple Cinnamon Pork Chops for dinner, using center-cut pork chops.
I would recommend getting the boneless, center-cut pork chops. They are a thick cut pork-chop and perfect for a delicious meal without much prep work.
This is a one-dish dinner, which happens to be my favorite to make. I was able to quickly put this together and then as it cooked in the oven, I could focus on all the after school work that needed to be done with the kids too.
Anyone else feel like the after school rush is a bit much? I just feel overloaded lately after school, I’m sure the activities lately aren’t helping that feeling but the homework for my son has gone up a bit after Christmas, so squeezing that in plus everything else is a bit much.
I think I’m very much ready for summer…no flu season too, right?
That just brings me to the next issue, I feel like I need to wrap us all in a bubble with all the sickness lately, it seems much worse this year.
We have been loading up on Elderberry Syrup, which I wish I had known about years ago. I am hoping that will help us but in the meantime bubble wrap would be nice too.
Now, back to this meal. I paired it with maple syrup, sweet potatoes, and apples. It’s an adaption of this Maple Cinnamon Chicken.
I swapped out the chicken for pork chops and was very much happy with how it turned out. I would recommend eating it though right when it comes out of the oven.
The pork chops are nice and juicy from the juice in the dish. If you wait a while before eating it, that causes it to dry out some.
It’s still tasty, but fresh out of the oven is really the best way to enjoy this.
