Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 2 1/2-quart casserole dish.

  • Mix apple, chicken broth, cherries, walnuts, stuffing mix, celery, onion, and melted butter together in a large bowl; transfer to the prepared casserole dish.

  • Season pork chops with salt and black pepper.

  • Heat olive oil in a large, non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook pork chops in hot oil until browned on one side, 2 to 3 minutes. Arrange the chops atop the stuffing mixture with the browned side facing up; press into the stuffing. Cover dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes. Remove aluminum foil and continue baking until pork chops are cooked through, about 10 to 15 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

Came out perfect! I cut the recipe down for a smaller family and it was delicious. Stuffing was just moist enough without being soggy. Read More

Substituted panko and some seasonings from our cabinet instead of herbed stuffing mix. Also added some cinnamon and brown sugar to the dressing. Used frozen cherries in place of dried. Omitted walnuts. This was very tasty and we will likely make again. Read More

Leave out the pork and it's perfect! We are vegetarian and this is our go to stuffing recipe every Thanksgiving. Everyone loves it! We use vegetable broth in place of chicken broth and bake in the oven without the foil. Read More

Awesome, simple recipe that is the best pork chop recipe I have ever found. Made just as written except all I had for an apple was dried organic apple that I chopped up and added. Think the stuffing was a little more moist than it would have been with a fresh apple. Today I'm going to prepare the recipe exactly as written because even with the slightly damp stuffing the pork chops and stuffing were so delicious. Read More

I made this the other night as I was having a craving for a homemade stuffing (more-or-less) and was blown away at how easy this was to cook. I never would have thought that simple salt and pepper would be enough to season a pork chop but it was great. I may alter the seasoning when I make it again. Other than that I was not prepared for how much stuffing this was going to yield. I might have over-measured. It was still good and it was eaten up with no issues. Thanks! Read More

Followed the recipe except for "English" walnuts. Couldn't find in our rural area. Used regular walnuts and it was delicious. My husband is not a fan of pork but he really liked it. Wouldn't change a thing. Read More
