This was my first time making pork chops, and I thought this was a fun and tasty way to serve this meat. I enjoyed the apple and pecan flavor, and the melted brown sugar was a nice combination with both the apples and the pork chops. This dish is extremely easy, uses very few ingredients, and is ready in less than 20 minutes.

Push apples to side and add pork chops to same skillet; cook for 4 minutes. Turn chops over, and spoon apples over chops. Sprinkle each one with pecans and brown sugar.
