Cinnamon-Apple Pork Chops Recipe

I found this recipe online years ago and it quickly became a favorite. The ingredients are easy to keep on hand and it's great in hot weather because it goes together quickly, without turning on the oven. One-pan cleanup is a bonus. —Christina Price, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Quick and yummy! The apple side tasted like apple pie! I put the warm pork chops into the apple sauce in the frying pan and turned a couple of times before serving. And I omitted the nuts.

Quick & easy pork chop meal! Apples and pork goes well together and the family always enjoys these dishes. Pecans are the finishing touch.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 25, 2013

These pork chops were quick and easy! Even easier when I used my canned apples from last fall. YUM!

The only downside was the sauce was super sweet so next time I would try to use something different or add something to adjust to my taste. My father in law and husband loved it, and said it tasted similar to mincemeat.
