Great blend of flavors. I've served this many times and always get rave reviews. ENJOY! A friend who I gave this recipe to likes the Coriander crust so much she doubles that part of the recipe. As always adjust quantities to your families preferences. (Things are happening simultaneously - time from start of meal to finish is 45 minutes)

This was good. I used bone-in chops, just cooked them in the oven a couple more minutes and they were done nicely. I also topped the chops with the onions and apples before I put it in the oven. I don't like things overly sweet and used a granny smith apple since it's what I had and they were the perfect sweetness for me.
