Let's Make It
Heat grill to medium-high heat.
Whisk dressing and jam until blended. Remove 2 Tbsp. dressing mixture; brush evenly onto chops. Let stand 10 min.
Meanwhile, spoon rice onto center of large sheet heavy-duty foil; top with beans. Bring up foil sides to form bowl. Gradually pour broth and remaining dressing mixture over beans. Fold foil to make packet.
Place chops and foil packet on grill grate. Grill 15 min. or until chops are done (145ºF) and most the liquid in foil packet is absorbed. Remove chops and packet from grill. Let stand 3 min. before serving. Cut slits in foil to release steam before opening packet.
Pork chops can be brushed with dressing mixture and refrigerated overnight before grilling as directed.
Prepare using apricot preserves.
To ensure your pork is done but not overcooked, grill until just a hint of pink remains (145°F). Transfer to plate; cover with foil. Let stand 5 min. before serving.
Add Grill Marks
For a restaurant-style touch, add grill marks to your grilled meat, poultry or fish. Just place the food diagonally across the hot oiled grill grates, then proceed with grilling as usual. For a special touch, rotate the food a quarter turn halfway through the grilling time on each side to create criss-crossed grill marks.
