Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Sprinkle chops with salt and pepper. Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray; heat the skillet over medium-high. Add the chops; cook 4 to 5 minutes or until browned on both sides. Remove from the skillet; keep warm.

  • Combine apples, onion, and garlic in the skillet. Cook over medium-high 6 to 8 minutes or until the apples are golden, stirring occasionally. Carefully add wine; cook 1 to 2 minutes, stirring to scrape up crusty brown bits. Stir in broth, mustard, and butter. Return the chops to the skillet. Simmer, covered, 4 to 6 minutes or until a thermometer inserted in the chops registers 145 degrees F.

  • Serve the chops and the apple mixture with rice. Sprinkle with thyme.
