Skillet Porkchops with Apricot-Mustard Sauce

This recipe comes from Weight Watchers in 20 Minutes cookbook, and is a quick and easy way to prepare pork chops.  The original recipe calls for 5 ounce bone-in chops, but I substituted 4 ounce boneless pork loin chops with excellent results.  The sauce is sweet and slightly spicy, and works well with the pork.  I think it would also be great on chicken breasts as well.
