Apricot Lamb Chops

  • 1/2 cup apricot preserves
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 8 (4-ounce) lamb loin chops, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
