Skillet Apple Pork Chops

From Cooking Light, September 2016 issue

1 1/2 tsp. olive oil, divided
4 (6 oz.) bone-in pork chops
3/4 tsp. salt, divided
3/4 tsp. pepper, divided
1/2 cup unsalted chicken stock
1 tsp. Dijon mustard
1 tbsp. fresh sage (or 1 tsp. dried)
1 1/2 tsp. fresh rosemary (or about 1/4-1/2 tsp. dried)
2 medium apples, sliced thinly
1 small red onion, vertically sliced

1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 1/2 tsp. oil to pan; swirl to coat. Sprinkle pork evenly with 3/8 tsp salt & 3/8 tsp pepper. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until pork is done. Remove from pan.
2. Combine stock and mustard, stirring with a whisk. Add remaining 1 tbsp oil to pan; swirl. Add remaining salt & pepper plus the other spices and the apples and onion to the pan; cook 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in stock mixture. Return pork to pan; cook 3 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half.

You guys, this took under 30 minutes from start to finish and was so, so good. My whole house smelled amazing after and I kept saying how good it was. This is such a comforting and easy fall meal. I doubled the apples the next time and it was a better ratio of apples to pork :)
