I made this exactly according to the recipe, except that I followed the advice of others and reduced the temperature to 350 and cooked for about half an hour. If your chops are less than a full inch thick, be sure to check them early; mine were probably closer to 3/4" thick, and I felt they were a tad bit overdone, even with the reduced temp/time.
I couldn't find apricot jam and had to make do with preserves, but I don't really think that makes much difference.
While the taste was a little more fiery than we usually care for, we did eat it all up in one night, and I will probably make it again. I think the Catalina dressing AND pepper together were what made it a little on the too-spicy side for us; next time I'll skip the pepper and see if it makes a difference. I may also use more apricot to make it a little sweeter.
