Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Mix salt and black pepper together; season both sides of each pork chop.

  • Press both sides of apple slices into brown sugar to coat them.

  • Cook bacon in a non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain bacon slices on paper towels, reserving bacon grease in the skillet.

  • Mix 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter into the reserved bacon grease over medium heat; cook the brown sugar-coated apple slices until apples are tender and glazed, about 5 minutes. Transfer glazed apples to a plate in a single layer leaving room between each apple.

  • Stir in the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and 1 tablespoon butter to the skillet over medium-high heat. Brown pork chops, about 2 minutes per side. Transfer pork chops to a plate.

  • Mix Swanson® Unsalted Chicken Stock, lemon juice, and 1/2 of the green onions into the skillet mixture; bring liquid to a simmer. Check sauce for seasoning; add salt to taste, if desired.

  • Place the browned pork chops in the skillet and simmer in the sauce until pork chops are cooked through, about 20 minutes.

  • Serve topped with 4 glazed apple slices per chop. Sprinkle with crumbled bacon; spoon a generous amount of the pan sauce over top. Finish with a sprinkle of green onions.

Cook's Note:

I served the pork chops with Cheddar couscous using the remaining Swanson(R) Unsalted Chicken Stock.
