*If your pork chops are thicker than this, I recommend starting them on the stovetop and finishing them in the oven as outlined in this recipe. The cooking time will be longer, so look for thinner chops if you'll be short on time.
For a shortcut version of this dish that's still delicious and even faster, omit all the compote ingredients except for the chopped apple (use a nice, big apple or 2 smaller ones). After you take the pork chops out of the pan, add the chopped apple, stirring and scraping with a spatula to deglaze the pan. Reduce the heat to medium and let the apple cook for 2-3 minutes, until softened and browned to your liking. Sprinkle on a little salt and pepper, spoon the apple on top of the pork chops, and dig in.
