PORK CHOPS WITH APRICOT RICE

1 cup long-grain white rice
1/4 cup dried apricots (about 8), chopped
2 scallions, thinly sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
4 bone-in pork chops (about 1-inch thick)
Kosher salt and pepper
1/2 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
1/4 cup apricot jam

Cook the rice according to package directions, adding the apricots to the saucepan along with the rice.  Fluff with a fork and fold in the scallions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Season the pork with 1/2 teaspoon each of the salt and pepper; cook until golden brown and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes per side.  Transfer to plates.

Add the wine to the skillet and cook, scraping up any brown bits, for 1 minute.  Whisk in the apricot jam and cook until melted.  Serve over the pork chops with the rice.
