Servings 4


  • 12″ nonstick skillet


  • 4 Boneless Pork Chops - 1″ Thick
  • 1 tsp. Salt
  • ¼ tsp. Pepper
  • ¼ cup Butter
  • 1 cup Onions - Thinly Sliced
  • 4 tsp. Chopped Fresh Thyme Leaves
  • 2 cups Honeycrisp Apple - Cut in 1/4″ Slices
  • 1 cup Chicken Broth


  • Rub pork chops with salt and pepper.
  • In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add pork chops; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until browned on first side.
  • Turn pork; reduce heat to medium; cook 4 to 6 minutes longer.* Transfer to plate, and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • In same skillet, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat; add onions and 3 tsp. of thyme. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent and begin to brown.
  • Add apple; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken broth; simmer uncovered 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are crisp-tender and sauce is reduced.
  • Serve onion mixture over pork; garnish with remaining 1 tsp. thyme.


Braeburn or Fuji apples are a great substitute for Honeycrisp.
