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

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon canola oil
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 2 medium tart apples, peeled and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon butter or stick margarine
  • 1/2 cup plus 2 tablespoons unsweetened apple juice, divided
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

Directions

In a nonstick skillet, brown pork chops on both sides in oil. Place in an 11-in. x 7-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Add wine or broth to the skillet, stirring to loosen brown bits. Pour over chops. Cover and bake at 350° for 20 minutes.
Meanwhile, in the same skillet, saute apples in butter for 3-4 minutes. Add 1/2 cup apple juice and honey; cook for 1-2 minutes. Spoon over chops. Bake, uncovered, for 5-10 minutes or until heated through. Remove chops and apples to a serving platter and keep warm, reserving pan juices.
In a saucepan, combine cornstarch and remaining apple juice until smooth; add reserved pan juices. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Serve over pork and apples. Yield: 4 servings.

"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!"
