Ingredients
  

  • 6 tbsp butter
  • 1/2 cup onion diced
  • 1/2 cup celery diced
  • 1/2 green apple peeled & diced
  • 4 oz mushrooms washed & sliced
  • 4 slices thick cut bread diced
  • 1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
  • 1 tsp sage
  • 1 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp Better than Bouillon Chicken
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 4 thick-cut, bone-in pork chops 3/4" thick
  • 4 tbsp horseradish mustard or djion

Instructions
 

Stuffing

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat.
    6 tbsp butter
  • Add onion, celery, apple and mushroom in skillet and saute for 3-5 min until all softened, stirring frequently
    1/2 cup onion, 1/2 cup celery, 1/2 green apple, 4 oz mushrooms
  • Take skillet off heat and add poultry seasoning, sage, thyme, salt and pepper
    1/2 tsp poultry seasoning, 1 tsp sage, 1 tsp thyme, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • Add in bread cubes and stir
    4 slices thick cut bread
  • Microwave water for 45 seconds and add bouillon. Stir to dissolve
    1/4 cup water, 1/2 tsp Better than Bouillon Chicken
  • Add chicken broth slowly to skillet - stirring to mix and coat all bread so stuffing starts to stick together a little
    1/2 tsp Better than Bouillon Chicken
  • Set stuffing aside to absorb broth a little

Pork Chops

  • Using a boning knife, cut a deep pocket in pork chops, cutting close to the bone. You might need to take "swipes" with your knife to cut deep enough
  • Preheat Air Fryer to 375 (if you have one that needs to preheat)
  • Fill each pocket with a handful of stuffing - it's easiest to just use your hands. Mush the stuffing into the pocket and pull the top of the pork chop over the stuffing. We're not flipping - so no need to secure with a toothpick - it's fine.
  • Brush top of pork chops with mustard and spritz with a touch of olive oil spray
  • Lay pork chop into basket of air fryer (oven or basket style)
  • Air fry at 375 for 8 minutes
  • Check temperature with a meat thermometer to 145 - be sure to check the meat - not touching the bone
