A few weeks ago I made Cajun Pork Chops, which turned out to be one of the most delicious pork chop dishes I have ever had. It also ended up being one of the most popular recipes that I have posted, and no wonder!! It is super easy to make (less than 30 minutes!), super delicious and flavorful. It is one of those one-pan wonders that makes you think ”how come we don’t make stuff like this all the time??”

So I decided to make another quick and easy pork chops recipe – Maple Glazed Pork Chops.

Maple Glazed Pork Chops

You guys!! This turned out so good.

This maple glaze is total perfection. It is perfectly sticky and sweet, yet aromatic and herbal, thanks to the wonderful combination of maple syrup and thyme.

In other words, it is totally irresistible and addicting, and you will find yourself licking the spatula and everything this sauce comes into contact with.

What to serve with maple glazed pork chops:

We ate these Maple Glazed Pork Chops with a side salad and these Roasted Young Potatoes. It was a good dinner. 🙂

These pork chops would also be great with this Brown Rice Salad:

And here’s a recipe to a great side salad: Apple Mandarin Orange Spinach Salad with homemade Poppy Seed & Mandarin Orange Dressing:

A few notes about how to make maple glazed pork chops:

  • You can use bone-in or boneless pork chops for this recipe.
  • Use real maple syrup! Do not use caramel-colored high fructose ”pancake syrup” that tries to disguise itself in the syrup aisle. The flavor will not be the same. This one from Amazon is a pretty good deal!
  • The sauce will thicken as it cools, so stop cooking it down when it looks just a little too liquid for your taste. Otherwise you will end up with a thick honey-like consistency. Which is not a bad thing! It will just be harder to pour over the pork chops.
  • You can actually use fresh or dried thyme for this recipe. Thyme is one of those herbs that is pretty good dried and still keeps its flavor. This one from Amazon is pretty good!

Ingredients

Instructions

  • Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet, and cook the pork chops over high heat for about 5 minutes on each side, or until both sides are nicely browned. 
  • Remove the pork chops from the pan (place them on a large plate) and reduce the heat to medium. Add the remaining olive oil, minced garlic, and thyme to pan and cook for 1 minute, or until the garlic is golden. Add the rest of the ingredients (maple syrup, dry white wine, chicken broth) and give it a stir. Carefully place the pork chops back into the pan and continue to cook for about 15 minutes, or until the sauce has thickened to a nice glaze and the pork chops are fully cooked to an internal temperature of 160F. 
  • Remove from heat and serve hot, spooning the extra glaze from the pan over the pork chops. 

Notes

Cooking time of pork chops will depend on their thickness. If the pork chops are fully cooked before the sauce has thickened to your liking, remove them from pan and cook down the sauce for a few minutes.
On the other hand, if your sauce cooked down too much and has started caramelizing but the pork chops are not done, add in a 1/2 cup of water or chicken broth and stir.
