Skillet Pork Chops with Apples and Mustard Sauce

Skillet Pork Chops with Apples and Mustard Sauce

Oh dinner…trying to find what to cook based on what I have on hand that might be met with thumbs up from the family. In all honesty, I have stopped even counting Evan’s opinion because he hates everything other than pizza. I am still trying for Dewey, though, since I think he would notice if I stopped serving anything other than grilled cheeses (though, honestly, grilled cheese sandwiches are YUMMY). Today I dug through the freezer and found chicken thighs or boneless pork chops. Pork chops it is! After a girls weekend I have a lot of apples hanging around so I went off to Pinterest to look for a pork chop and apple recipe. Thankfully I found a recipe that was as delicious as it was easy.  I think this will make it back on to the rotation soon.

Evan said that the chicken was pretty tasty…even though I told him it was pork at least 5 times. Oh well, it works for me.
