This is the kind of meal that will make you feel like a rock star chef. It's full of complex flavors, contrasting textures, and interesting ingredients. A perfectly seared, golden pork chop topped with a sweet and tangy glaze is the star of this dish. The glaze combines crisp apples with apricot jam, and then a splash of balsamic vinegar takes it from sweet to savory. You’'ll also make side dishes that bring color to the plate and pack a huge nutritional punch. Nutty brown rice and soft lentils make a unique pilaf, and bright Swiss chard cooks down to a tender pile of greens.
