Apricot Herb Pork Medallions

I love this recipe. It has the perfect balance between sweet and heat. I love the taste of chardonnay wine and will use that when making this recipe. It is important when you cook with wine to use something you like to drink. This recipe makes a lot and is perfect for a winter gathering.
