Pork Chops with Apple Pico de Gallo

Not exactly sure how to describe this but it turned out DELICIOUS!!!!!

6-8 thin sliced pork chops(I use boneless)
1 medium white onion, sliced
1 medium tart apple, sliced(I used a granny smith)
1/4 cup bourbon whiskey
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 clove garlic minced
salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350

In a dish place onions, apples and whiskey, toss to combine.

Layer chops over the top and sprinkle with brown sugar, garlic, salt and pepper.

Bake in preheated oven for 30 minutes or until thermometer registers 165.

While it is baking you can make your pico de gallo
You can use about 1 cup of a store bought one and add apples or you can mix up an easy one

3 small roma tomatoes, peeled, seeded and diced*
1/2 small onion, chopped
2 Tb fresh cilantro, chopped
1 jalapeno, diced
1/2 clove of garlic, minced
1 TB fresh lime juice
1 small granny smith apple, cored and diced.

*to easily peel tomatoes place them in boiling water for 20 seconds, then place them immediately in ice water for 1 minute. The peel will easily slip off.

Place chop on a plate and topped with desired amount of pico.

I served mine over quinoa that I had boiled with chicken broth.
