This is a recipe I have been making for so many years, I don’t ever look at the recipe. This is a perect entree for when you need dinner ready in under an hour and your family is sick of chicken and pasta.
Grab some lean boneless chops, slice up a couple of granny smith apples.
Butter a baking dish- throw in the apples, add seasonings, brown the chops, top with butter. Bake. Dinner is ready.
I serve with a roasted sweet potato and broccoli.
