MY OTHER RECIPES


And I’m saying this as I am in Palm Springs in 110 degree weather. Literally.

Maybe I’m just excited about my recent trip to Chicago where I was lucky enough to preview the new Glade® Autumn Collection at a one of a kind, interactive event, inspired by scent that tempted guests to discover the glamour and mystery of the season.

My experience at the event and the collection really inspired me to step outside my comfort zone with this recipe.

Seriously. Because you know I’m all about those chicken thighs.

I was so inspired by the Glade® Autumn Collection fragrances, particularly with Spiced Apple Magic™, that I had to do something with apples, brown sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. And what better combination of flavors to top off some beautifully seared pork chops completely rubbed with fresh sage?

See, I told you. I’m really going for it.

The best part? The complementary side baked right alongside your main!

Ingredients:

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 (8-ounce) pork chops, bone-in, 3/4-inch to 1-inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh sage
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 16 ounces green beans, trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

  • 2 apples, peeled, cored and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray.
  2. Melt butter in a large skillet over medium high heat.
  3. Rub both sides of the pork chops with sage; season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add to the skillet and sear both sides until golden brown, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Place pork chops and green beans in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet. Drizzle green beans with olive oil and sprinkle with garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.
