Pork Chops with Apples and Pecan Salsa

Sometimes for dinner I just want to eat some porkschawps and applsawce.  Mostly so I can just talk like Peter Brady impersonate Humphrey Boggart.  And relieve the days when Peter Brady was my major crush and destined to be my future husband (even though he was my age in the 1970s…a tragic love that could never be).

This is a dish that Peter Brady would love- an update on pork chops and applesauce.   The pork chops are pounded thin, fried, and topped with a sweet and juicy apple pecan salsa.  Yum!
