Pork Chops with Apples & Thyme
Nutritionist Tested & Approved

Time: 30 minutes (15 minutes prep)

Ingredients
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, divided

  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 2 teaspoons canola oil

  • 4 4-ounce boneless pork chops, 1/2 inch thick, trimmed of fat

  • 1 small onion, sliced

  • 1 tart apple, such as Granny Smith, peeled and sliced

  • 1/4 cup apple cider, or apple juice

  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Directions
  1. Mix 2 tablespoons broth and cornstarch in a small bowl.

  2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add chops and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Reduce heat to medium-high and add onion to the pan. Cook, stirring often, until it starts to soften and brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Add apple and cook, stirring often, until tender, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir in the remaining broth, cider (or juice), mustard, thyme and the cornstarch mixture. Bring to a boil, stirring, until thickened and glossy, about 1 minute. Return the chops to the pan and heat through. Serve immediately.
