- 4 bone-in pork loin chops (1-1/2 inches thick and 8 ounces each)
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 cup whole kernel corn
- 1 cup diced peeled apple
- 1 cup dry bread crumbs
- 1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
- 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion
- 1 tablespoon milk
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1/2 cup honey
- 1/4 to 1/2 cup Dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- Cut a pocket in each chop by slicing almost to the bone. In a large skillet, brown the chops in oil over medium heat. Remove from the heat.
- In a large bowl, combine the corn, apple, bread crumbs, parsley, onion, milk, salt, sage and pepper. Stuff into pork chops. Place in a greased 13-in. x 9-in. baking dish.
- Combine the sauce ingredients; pour half over the chops. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 1 hour or until a meat thermometer reads 160°, basting occasionally with remaining sauce. Yield: 4 servings.

I made this this morning, and had it for a late lunch. Very Tasty! I even had applesauce with it. All I can say is it is simple to make and makes an excellent meal. I used 5 chops. The sauce is delish, the stuffing delish, and the chops are moist.
This was so delicious! The stuffing was quite a surprise, I had never combined corn, onions, and apples before...I'm so glad I just did it without questioning the unknown, it is incredibly good! I always bread my pork chops so they don't get dry, and the chops on sale at my store weren't thick enough to stuff, so I just overlapped the chops a bit and placed the stuffing in between. This stuffing would be good with any white meat, I think. Ohhhh, it was so good!!!! Thank you for a keeper recipe!!!
We do not like bone in chops so used boneless. Did not take as long to bake. Needed a little more liquid as it tended to be dry, but good.
A simple alternative for the stuffing is just boxed turkey or chicken stuffing mix. Either way, 'Good Eats.'
VERY good. The stuffing is good and the sauce makes it!! I baked it on convection for 50 minutes.
