Ingredients
  • Total Time: 30 minutes

  • 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. 4 servings

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

  3. 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.
