Creamy Apricot Pork Chops
Creamy Apricot Pork Chops are a sweet and savory dish where pan-seared pork chops are cooked in a creamy sauce until tender and served over egg noodles for a perfect weeknight meal for the family in less than 30 minutes.
Servings: 6 servings
- 1 ½ pounds thin cut pork chops about 6 pork chops
- 2 Tablespoons butter
- 1 can cream of chicken soup
- ⅓ cup sour cream
- ¼ cup chopped green onions plus more for garnish
- 30 ounces apricot halves in heavy syrup
- 6 cups dried wide egg noodles cooked according to package directions
Drain both cans of apricots, reserving ½ cup of the syrup for the sauce. Set both the apricots and the syrup aside.
Heat the butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Sear the pork chops in the melted butter, cooking about 2 minutes per side until nicely browned. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and pour off any fat remaining in the pan.
Reduce the heat to medium, then stir the cream of chicken soup, sour cream, reserved apricot syrup, and green onions together in the pan. Return the pork chops to the pan, nestling them into the sauce and bring everything to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover, stirring occasionally and simmering just until the pork chops are tender, about 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the pork chops. Add the apricots during the last 5 minutes and stir into the sauce.
Serve the pork chops over cooked egg noodles with the apricots and sauce spooned over the top.
