This was a very tasty recipe.. I altered it a little: I used freshly diced apples (Fuji Apples) with the apple juice.. to which the apple juice was absorbed completely into the apples. I filled the pan with approx 1/4 inch of apple juice, that the pork chops cooked in the oven with.

Really enjoyed these fruity and nutty chops. Requires plenty seasoning inside and outside, in our opinion.

Made this for 2 of us, so I used just 3 large chops, but did do a full amount of the stuffing! Also used some very flavorful dried Fuji apples instead of the somewhat tasteless ones from Sun-Maid, & we had a really outstanding supper, thanks to your recipe!
