Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops

While I was surfing around the American Diabetes Association website tonight, trying to learn more about other types of diabetes (empowerment is in education, after all!), I came across a page with recipes that also include nutrition facts and food exchanges. This one in particular sounded so yummy to me! It had my mouth watering just reading over the ingredients! We will definitely be having this one tonight for dinner!

Apple Cinnamon Pork Chops

Serves 2; serving size: 1 pork chop with apples
2 tsp canola oil
1 large apple, sliced
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
2 3-oz lean boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat
  1. In a medium nonstick skillet, heat the canola oil. Add apple slices and saute until just tender.
  2. Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg, remove from heat, and keep warm.
  3. Place pork chops in skillet, and cook thoroughly. Remove pork chops from skillet, arrange on a serving platter, spoon apple slices on top, and serve.
