Serve up some comforting Apple Pork Chops for dinner on a cold evening! They’re so easy to make and always receive rave reviews!
There are few meals that I make time and time again. I love to have a variety in our menu to prevent boredom. Plus, my little picky eaters complain if I serve the same old thing all the time! These Apple Pork Chops are a tried and true family recipe that I got from my mother-in-law when I first married my husband. We’ve been enjoying them ever since!
They are completely no fuss too! Simply make up a package of stuffing while you’re browning the pork chops, then throw it all together with some apple pie filling on the bottom. I have a feeling this is going to become a favorite at your house too!
If I’m honest, I pretty much never feel like “going all out” with dinner. I’m typically tired from the day’s activities and needing a quick and tasty solution to feed my family. I’m all about simple rather than elaborate when it comes to meals.
I believe it’s important to gather everyone around the table to share good conversation and good eats. But that doesn’t mean you have to sweat in the kitchen all day to make that happen. This recipe is a perfect example of a “fancy” feeling meal that is little to no stress to prepare.
I’m thinking this would be a great way to use up the leftover Thanksgiving stuffing and pie filling too! Why not repurpose those yummies into another great meal?! That’s one way to make everyone look forward to leftovers!
I like to start with thin pork chops, because it means they cook through really quickly and dinner is ready in no time at all! This time, I happened to purchase thick pork chops on accident, so I simply used a sharp serrated knife to slice them two or three ways to create the thinner chops.
Apple Pork Chops
- 1 can apple pie filling chopped to produce small apple pieces (21 oz.)
- Boneless thin pork chops (6-8)
- 1 box Stove Top Stuffing pork or chicken flavored 6 oz.
- Salt and pepper
- Spray a 9"x13" pan with non stick cooking spray. Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Prepare the stuffing according to package directions.
- In a large skillet, brown the pork chops on both sides, seasoning with salt and pepper.
- Spread the apple pie filling in the bottom of the prepared pan. Place the browned pork chops on top in a single layer.
- Spread prepared stuffing mixture evenly over the top. Cover the pan with foil and bake for approximately 40 minutes, or just until pork chops are completely cooked through and reach an internal temperature of 160 degrees.
- Remove the foil for the last 5 to ten minutes of cook time.
I hope you enjoy these as much as my family does! Let me know what you think of them!
