  • 1 pound yellow-flesh potatoes, such as Yukon gold, cut into 1/2-inch slices

  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced

  • 2 tablespoon snipped fresh chives

  • 4 teaspoon olive oil

  • ¾ teaspoon garlic salt

  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops, cut 1 inch thick

  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon fig or apricot preserves

  • 1 teaspoon sherry vinegar or red wine vinegar

  • ½ teaspoon Dijon-style mustard

  • teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Cut an 18-inch square of heavy foil. Place potatoes, onion, and chives in center of foil. Drizzle with 3 tsp. of the oil and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp. of the garlic salt and the paprika. Bring up two opposite edges of foil and seal with a double fold. Fold remaining ends to enclose potato mixture, leaving space for steam to build.

  2. Line a 15x10-inch baking pan with foil or coat with nonstick cooking spray. Trim fat from chops. Place chops in one side of prepared pan; brush lightly with remaining 1 tsp. oil and sprinkle with remaining 1/4 tsp. garlic salt and the black pepper. Place potato packet in other side of prepared pan. Roast 25 to 30 minutes or until chops register 145°F and potatoes are tender.

  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl stir together remaining ingredients. Spoon preserves mixture over chops and serve with potato mixture. If desired, sprinkle with additional chives.
