This tasty entree features pork, apples and honey. Everyone likes it, and I've given the recipe out many times. Sometimes I slice the apples into rings and place one on each chop when serving them. —Helen Koehler of Marshalltown, Iowa

My teen daughter made this for dinner and since we were low on honey she used a bit of brown sugar. These were wonderful, light, and delicious!
