This is one of our very favorite fall dinners. This is a little bit nicer than normal pork chops and applesauce, but it has the same great flavors. The whole dish only takes one pan, so less dishes to wash too-can't complain about that!
4 pork chops, about 3/4 inches thick
1 onion, sliced
2 cups sliced mushrooms
2 Tbsp balsamic vinaigrette dressing
1 1/2 cups minute rice, uncooked
1 can (10 1/2 oz) condensed chicken broth
1 broth can water
2 red apples, sliced
1 tsp dried thyme leaves
Spray a large skillet with cooking spray. Add chops-cook on med-high heat 4 minutes on each side or until browned. Add onion, mushrooms and dressing, cook an additional 3 minutes. Stir in rice, broth, water, apples and thyme. Reduce heat to MEDIUM; simmer 10 minutes or until heated though and rice is cooked.
