Pork Chops with Caramelized Onions and Apples

I don't know about you, but I am always looking for new ways to prepare pork chops, besides the standard breaded and pan fried. This is a good one I found in my latest issue of Cooking with Paula Deen. I have altered it just slightly.

What You'll Need:
3 slices of bacon
4 pork chops
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
1 white onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 Gala apple, cored, halved and thinly sliced
1/4 tsp. dried rosemary
3/4 chicken broth
1 Tbsp. butter

In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat for 7 minutes or until crisp, turning often. Remove bacon from the pan, discarding all but 1 Tbsp. of the drippings. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Cook pork chops in reserved drippings in skillet over medium-high heat 4 to 5 minutes per side or until done. Remove from pan, and keep warm.

Add onion, apples and rosemary to skillet. Cook 4 to 5 minutes until browned and tender. Add chicken broth, and bring to a boil. Remove from heat and stir in butter. Serve sauce over pork chops, and top with crumbled bacon.
