Pork Chops With Mango Chutney Recipe

Pork chops are one of the most versatile main courses out there, and this recipe certainly proves it. Instead of a hearty mushroom or vegetable topping, these pork chops are served with sweet, homemade mango chutney.

Pork Chops With Mango Chutney

You might think, “Chutney? Won’t that be complicated?” Not at all! This recipe is easy to prep, comes together incredibly quickly, and works well with a variety of side dishes.

It’s also great for those of us with small children who may be less keen on a traditional pork chop – by sweetening things up a bit, even picky eaters will be tempted by these chops.

You’ll be making mango chutney from scratch (the best way to prepare it, in our opinion). There are tons of mango chutneys available pre-made in most Indian food sections – and most will include non-Paleo ingredients, including sugars and other sweeteners.

This chutney derives its sweetness from the fruit and honey only. If you are choosing to avoid honey, this recipe will still work without it! For the best results, just make sure to use soft, ripe mangoes – it will make prep easier and draw out the best flavors for your dish.

This is a great recipe to try as a dinner main course. For an Indian-themed meal, try making the cauliflower tortillas – you can bake these a bit thicker than the recipe calls for and serve them like naan. A great way to round out your plate is a helping of a vegetable side that pairs well with the Indian flavors – we like the hearty vegetable curry for this!
