Skillet Pork Chops with Apples and Onions

It’s rare that I serve pork without some apple accompaniment, such as this Apple Mustard Glazed Pork Tenderloin. It is a concoction of flavors that never disappoints, and makes for a rich, flavorful, sweet and savory main dish.

To add, this Skillet Pork Chops with Apples and Onions recipe is also healthy, low in calories, gluten free, and made with just a handful of ingredients.

WHAT ARE GOOD SIDES FOR PORK CHOPS

This dish pairs well with Mashed Sweet Potatoes, or a side of veggies like these Lemon Butter Green Beans.

I would also include a nice Bacon and Eggs Asparagus Salad or Avocado and Feta Kale Salad.

Add a glass (or a bottle!) of chardonnay to the aforementioned, please. 🤩
