Prep time25 minutes 
Total time25 minutes 
Portion size4

8 boneless fast-fry pork chops, (about 1 lb/450 g) 
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt 
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper 
2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil
Peppered Apples:
1 tbsp (15 mL) butter 
3 sweet-tart apples, (such as Cortland or Spartan), peeled and cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) cubes 
1/4 cup (60 mL) apple cider 
2 tsp (10 mL) liquid honey 
1/4 tsp (1 mL) coarse pepper 
1 pinch salt
Warm Chard Slaw:
2 tsp (10 mL) olive oil 
2 cloves garlic, minced 
2 tsp (10 mL) liquid honey 
1 bunch Swiss chard, thinly sliced 
2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice 
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt 
1/4 tsp (1 mL) pepper

Peppered Apples: In a skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat; cook apples, stirring often, until tender-crisp, about 4 minutes. Stir in cider and honey; reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring occasionally, until apples are tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in pepper and salt. Set aside and keep warm.

Sprinkle both sides of pork chops with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook chops, in batches and turning once, until juices run clear when pork is pierced and just a hint of pink remains inside, 4 to 6 minutes. Transfer to plate; keep warm.

Warm Chard Slaw: In the same skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic, stirring, for 30 seconds. Stir in honey until melted. Stir in chard; cook, stirring occasionally, until wilted, about 3 minutes. Stir in lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Serve with pork chops and apples
