Chipotle Maple Glazed Pork Medallions

* 1 teaspoon chili powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1/8 teaspoon cayenne
* 1 pound pork tenderloin, trimmed and cut crosswise into 1-inch-thick medallions
* 5 TBSP apple cider vinegar
* 1 tablespoon sugar free maple syrup
* 2 TBSP splenda
* Cooking spray

1. Sprinkle seasonings over both sides of pork.
2. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat, coated with cooking spray. Add the pork and cook until golden, several minutes on each side. Mix syrup, splenda and vinegar in a bowl, and then add to the pan. Bring to a boil, scraping up any browned bits. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, turning the pork occasionally to coat, until the sauce is reduced to a thick glaze, 4-5 minutes.

*Be careful not to over cook or the pork will be too dry. Use a meat thermometer or keep cutting into the pork to check the color. It should be a light pink in the center.
