Have you seen the Paddington Bear movie? My kids love it (and their parents do too)! So, the kids love Paddington and Paddington loves marmalade. What do the kids ask for then? Marmalade! Well actually they didn’t want to just try marmalade, they wanted to make a large batch of marmalade from scratch. I really didn’t want to cook marmalade in a hot kitchen for hours, so I convinced them we could buy marmalade and try it in a new recipe: Marmalade Pork Chops.
I concocted a marmalade marinade with a tasty garlic kick. It is so good that I strongly considered eating the entire bowl of marinade on a cracker and just eating plain pork chops. Really, I did. But, I put down the crackers and made the pork chops instead.
I used Bon Maman brand Orange Marmalade. I like using Bon Maman in recipes because of the nice consistency of their products. If you use a marmalade that is too thick to whisk with other ingredients, simply heat the marmalade in the microwave for 30 seconds or so until it easier to mix.
You might not think of a pan of pork chops as a quick meal, but these bake in only 20 minutes. Boneless pork chops are usually cut thinner than bone-in pork chops so they cook quickly. Add a salad or bag of frozen vegetables and you have a quick and easy meal.
Marmalade Pork Chops an easy weeknight dinner.

- 1/4 tsp Salt

2.In a bowl add Marmalade, Garlic Powder, Minced Onion, Soy Sauce, Salt, and Pepper. Whisk ingredients until well blended.
3.Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Lay Pork Chops on cookie sheet.
Brush Olive Oil on both sides of the Pork Chops.
Brush Marmalade Marinade on both sides of the Pork Chops. Bake for 20 minutes. If you had to overlay Pork Chops then rotate chops at 12 minutes, so the Pork Chops cook evenly.
I served the Marmalade Pork Chops with rice and mixed veggies.
