Welcome to Tweaked at Chez Jan de la Dayton....translated to 'tweaked at Jan's house in Dayton'! Sounds fancy, but it's not. If you choose to share a recipe, be kind and give me kudos for it. The pictures are NOT to be taken off this blog unless used in a direct link to this blog. Once upon a time I was a Weight Watchers leader....that chapter is closed. But I still like to eat and bake and don't like the weight that finds its way to me too easily. So I go find delicious-sounding recipes and tweak them. Some recipes, however, just don't turn out right if they're tweaked. I've not posted anything....so far.....that isn't WW friendly. That might change, and I'll warn you if I post something with 'scary' P+ values. For those who don't use substitutions, the ratio for Splenda granulated/sugar is 1:1 and the ratio for egg substitute/eggs is 1/4 cup of egg sub = 1 egg. Now.....let's have some fun in the kitchen!!!

Apple Chops

I thought it was about time to share some 'real food' with you......but still have fruit in it.  I have alot of apples, so this just made sense. This is very tasty and the chops came out very tender and juicy.

Makes 4 Servings
1 Serving = 6 PointsPlus™

2 TBSP olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion
4 (1/2” thick) pork chops
1/2 tsp salt
pepper to taste
2 apples (peeled, cored & sliced)
2 TBSP brown sugar
1/2 tsp ground mustard
1/8 tsp ground cloves
3/4 cup hot water

Preheat oven to 375º.

Heat oil in a large skillet. Saute onions in oil for 1 minute or until tender. Remove onions and set aside. Brown chops on both sides (to your liking).

Place chops in an 8 x 11 inch baking dish and sprinkle with salt & pepper. Cover chops with apples and cooked onions.

In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, mustard, cloves and water. Pour over chops. Cover with foil and bake 35 – 40 minutes.

MY SPIN: The next time I make these I'll only use 1/2 cup of hot water and maybe take the foil off for the last 5 minutes. I didn't want to brown the chops too much because I didn't want them to get dry. And I like onions, so I might use more than just 1/2 cup.

Now for the 'legal mumbo-jumbo' to keep me out of court!! *** The PointsPlus™ value for this recipe was calculated by me (Jan Gomes) and is not an endorsement or approval of this recipe by Weight Watchers International, Inc., the owner of the PointsPlus™ registered trademark. ***

Loving Life(time)!
