Apple-Balsamic Pork Chops (FREEZER MEAL)

We love our chicken meals but sometimes we need a break! Pork Chops satisfy the whole family and these are delicious!

Apple Balsamic Pork Chops

Ingredients

4 boneless pork chops
1/4 cup apple cider (or apple juice)
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup apple jelly
2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar

To prepare for freezer: In a labeled Ziploc bag, combine all ingredients. Freeze flat.

To cook: Allow to thaw overnight in the fridge. Once thawed, remove the chops (leaving the sauce in the ziploc bag for a moment). Heat 2 tablespoons of oil in a large saute pan. Brown the chops on both sides. Pour the sauce over the chops, cover and cook for about 15-20 minutes or until pork is no longer pink. Remove chops from pan, whisk in 2 Tablespoons of cornstarch into the pan sauce, bring to a boil, whisking until thickened. Add the chops back into the pan. Serve chops with sauce over top.
