Pork Chops with Mango Poblano Chutney

Thursday, March 28, 2013

From our skinny table to yours ...

Tonight we're cooking up dinner in under 20 minutes! Is there anything better than good food fast? 'Fast food' certainly doesn't have to mean going through the drive-through of shame. Stick with us and you'll be sitting down to a healthy, delicious meal in no time.

Tonight we are making our grilled pork chops with mango poblano chutney. Chutneys are a wonderful topping to spice up the typically bland white meat, chicken or pork, but are super simple to make. We put a bit of a twist on the typical chutney (which consists of fruit, vinegar & sugar) to keep it healthy and fresh. We used mango, pineapple, white balsamic vinegar, lime juice and just a teaspoon of brown sugar. We finished this off with a poblano pepper for the perfect balance of sweet and spicy.

 
Seriously, this dinner is so delicious you'd think it took all day! Hope you enjoy :)
