Ingredients

4 each  whole loin lean pork chops
0 3/4 cup  cold water
0 1/4 cup  apricot nectar juice drink, canned
0 1/4 cup  Raisins, golden, seedless
1 tsp  brown sugar
0.125 tsp  curry powder
1 cup  Rice, white, medium grain, cooked
0 1/2 tsp  salt
0.125 tsp  paprika
Directions
  1. For sauce, in a small saucepan combine water, apricot nectar, raisins, brown sugar, and curry.
  2. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer 15-20 minutes or until liquid is reduced to about 1/4 cup. Drain, reserving liquid for sauce.
  3. For stuffing, combine the raisin mixture, rice, half the salt, and the paprika.

  5. Spoon about 2 tablespoons of the stuffing in each pocket.
  6. Place chops on unheated rack in broiler pan. Broil 6 inches from heat about 8 minutes on each side.
  7. Season with the remaining salt, if desired, and brush with the reserved sauce.
