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

MY REVIEW

tried this one last night. I didn't have boneless pork loin chops on hand, so I substituted it with pork chops and cut down the cooking time to 3 minutes on each side. Used a blend of golden delicious and sansa apples. This was indeed a quick fix meal. My hubs enjoyed it very much.

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.
