I love meals that can be done in thirty minutes. They are very easy and quick. These tender and juicy pork chops that are covered with an apple cider sauce to make an elegant meal that is on the dinner table in yup you guessed it, thirty minutes!

Easy Apple Pork Chops 


2 Tbsp Olive oil 
 salt and pepper, to taste  
4 boneless pork loin chops*, 1 inch thick
1 yellow onion, sliced
2 gala apples, sliced
2 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp. granulated garlic powder
½ tsp cinnamon
¾ C. pure apple cider


1. Pour two tablespoons of olive oil into a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Sprinkle salt and pepper on per side of each pork  Cook your pork chops in the hot skillet, turning every forty-five seconds or so to form a brown crust. Cook for approximately five-seven minutes and remove. Place chops on a baking sheet and cover with foil. 

2. Let meat rest for ten minutes, while you cook the apples and onions. 
Pour a little more olive oil in the pan if needed. Saute apples and onions until onions soften, about three minutes. Combine dried herbs, cinnamon garlic powder, and cider. *You can add more salt and pepper if you want too.* Bring to a boil and let cider reduce, approximately four-five minutes. Place chops back to pan and turn to coat each side with cider sauce and remove the pan from heat.


*Feel free to substitute chicken breast.

Court's cooking tip of the day: Whether you are using a veggie or fruit to put in your dish, I recommend cutting/chopping it either the night before you cook the recipe or a few hours ahead of time. Place them in a mason jar(s) and close it tight. Put it in the fridge.  Trust me you'll save yourself a lot of time. :)
