Season the bacon chops with pepper (no need to add extra salt). Heat the oil in a non-stick frying pan, then sizzle and brown the chops over a medium heat for 5 mins, turning once. Lift onto a plate.
Add the butter to the pan. Once it looks foamy, stir in the onion and thyme, and fry very gently for 15 mins until the onion is soft and golden. Stir in the marmalade, mustard and stock, then simmer for 2 mins until it starts to thicken to a sauce. Add the chops back to the pan, simmer for 3 mins more, then serve.
