Prep Time: 20 minutes   |   Cook Time: 40 minutes


2 cups What’s Apple’n freeze dried apples, diced
1 cup Mon Cherry freeze dried cherries, diced
1 cup chicken broth
2-3 cups herb-seasoned cubed stuffing
1/2 cup diced celery
1/2 cup finely diced onion
3 tablespoons melted butter
4 thin pork loin chops
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt & pepper to taste



  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spread a thin coat of butter all over a casserole dish.
  2. In a large bowl, mix the apples, cherries, cubed stuffing, celery, onion, and melted butter and then transfer to the casserole dish.
  3. Prepare non-stick skillet on medium-high heat with oil. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Once oil is hot, add pork chops and cook until it is browned on one side (about 3-4 minutes).
  4. Place the pork chops on top of the stuffing mixture with the browned side up. Press into the stuffing and cover with aluminum foil.
  5. Bake for 25 minutes and then remove the aluminum foil. Continue to bake until the pork chops are fully cooked - about an additional 10 to 15 minutes. They should be at least 145 degrees in the center.
