  • 1
    Rub pork chops with salt and pepper. In 12-inch nonstick skillet, melt 2 tablespoons of the butter over medium-high heat. Add pork chops; cook 3 to 4 minutes or until browned on first side. Turn pork; reduce heat to medium; cook 4 to 6 minutes longer or until pork is no longer pink in center (at least 145°F). Transfer to plate, and cover with foil to keep warm.
  • 2
    In same skillet, melt remaining 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat; add onions and 3 teaspoons of the thyme. Cook 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are translucent and begin to brown.
  • 3
    Add apple; cook 1 to 2 minutes. Add chicken broth; simmer uncovered 6 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until apples are crisp-tender and sauce is reduced. Serve onion mixture over pork; garnish with remaining 1 teaspoon thyme.

Expert Tips

  • If desired, stir 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard into sauce the last 2 minutes of cooking for an additional depth of flavor.
  • If you prefer to use bone-in pork chops, you’ll need to add a few minutes to the cook time.
  • Braeburn or Fuji apples are a great substitute for Honeycrisp.
