Apricot pork chops?

I was thinking of doing something different...apricot porkchops. I've seen lots of recipes whereas they chops are seared then cooked in an apricot mixture until 145-150F. I have also seen a recipe that uses multigrain breadcrumbs.

I was thinking of making them by dipping the chops in flour, then an egg wash, then multi-grain crumbs. Then I'd brown them quickly (1 minute or so each side, until brown) in a pan with hot butter. Then I'd bake them until done, and toss around in a hot skillet with the apricot glaze to coat.

Does this sound reasonable? How would it taste with breadcrumbs and apricot vs. just plain chops with apricot?

I was considering serving with a twice-baked sweet potato and green beans.

I think I would skip the bread crumbs.I have made BBQ chicken with apricot fruit and glaze. What might be more to your liking is if you brown them in just corn starch,which will give them a crispy coating and invite more flavor from the apricot.
