- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup apricot jam
- 1 cup Catalina salad dressing

- 1 garlic clove, crushed
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).
Heat oil in frying pan over medium-high heat. Season pork chops with salt and pepper; cook 2 to 3 minutes per side until well-browned.
Stir jam, salad dressing, onion soup mix, and garlic together in a bowl until well-blended. Place chops in a 9x13 inch baking pan lined with foil, and cover with apricot mixture.
