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

"This recipe has become a favorite in my house. I was worried the pork chops would be too bland so I cubed after cooking and added back in with the apples once they started to get soft. I've cooked for friends and everyone seems to love it."
