  • Author: Michelle

  • Yield: 3 servings 1x


This easy apple pork chop skillet is the perfect autumn dish! It’s made in one pan, and is paleo, gluten-free and can be made whole30 and AIP.


  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tbsp coconut aminos
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (omit for whole30)
  • 1 tsp mustard (omit for AIP)
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 3/4 tsp salt, divided
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 3 bone in pork chops (about 1.5-2lbs)
  • 2 honey crisp apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 yellow onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced


  1. Combine the broth, coconut aminos, maple syrup, mustard, sage, thyme, and half of the salt. Whisk well and set aside.
  2. Using a large skillet, heat the avocado oil over medium heat. Salt the pork chops well on both sides. Cook for 4-5 minutes on both sides to get a nice sear on the pork chops. The internal temperature should read 145 F. Set aside.
  3. Add the apples, onions and garlic to the pan and cook for 4-5 minutes to soften.
  4. Stir in the sauce mixture and bring to a low simmer. Add the pork chops back to the pan and baste in the sauce. Continue to cook for another 2-3 minutes to reheat the pork chops and reduce the sauce.
  5. Serve topped with additional thyme to taste.
