Pork Chops

Set aside and let marinate while preparing apples.
Apples
In a bowl, pour melted butter over the apples and sprinkle on 1 tablespoon Sweet & Spicy Seasoning mixing to insure an even coating.
Preparation
Place the pork chops and apples in a 9 x 13-inch baking pan with apples in between each chop. Bake at 475⁰F for 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven.
Place the pork chops on a warm plate with apples alongside. Pour pan drippings over the pork chops and serve immediately.
NOTE: Any of the five No Salt & No Sugar Magic Seasoning Blends™ will work well in this dish and each will produce a unique and vibrant flavor. Be sure to put a bottle on the table for use as a shake-on seasoning. Apply generously for extra flavor.
