Recipe by Jen
1/4 c apple butter (I really did use my leftover home made. I just forgot to take the picture before using it all up! So I had to substitute this jar of apple butter, which would work just fine as well)
1/2 -1 tsp onion powder
1 can chicken broth + water for brine
Salt and Pepper to taste
1/2 c more apple butter
The night before, place pork chops, onion powder, and apple butter in seal-able container. Pour chicken broth and water over top until pork is covered. Cover with lid and let marinate/brine overnight.
Anyway, I covered my pork chops with the remaining 1/2 c apple butter (or more if you want and if you have a lot of chops). Cover and bake in at 375 degree oven for 15-20 minutes (ish) or until just slightly pink or your meat thermometer reads 145 degrees. The new guidelines for cooking pork now says to cook to 145 degrees.
