Cajun Pork Chops with Potatoes & Apple

This recipe is divine and I have been making it for many years.  The Cajun seasoning is wonderfully spicy and the chicken stock makes a lovely sauce and stops the chops from drying out.  The result is a lovely rich flavour and it takes only minutes to prepare…  The sweetness of the apple is a lovely contrast too…

Once everything is coated and fried you just put it all in a roasting pan and bung it in the oven for 45 minutes – so easy and so very delicious…

Ingredients:

4 large pork chops

2 tablespoons olive oil

6 baby potatoes cut into quarters

2 apples cut into eights

1 cup of chicken stock

1 cup of cornflour

½ cup of Cajun spices or seasoning

Method:

Coat the chops with Cajun spices and then press them into cornflour

Heat the olive oil in a large pan fry the chops on both sides for a few minutes until golden

Remove and place in a large casserole dish

Toss the potatoes and apples in the spices and the cornflour and quickly pan fry until a little coloured

Throw them into the casserole dish arranging between the chops

Add the cup of chicken stock to the frying pan and deglaze making sure you catch all the lovely crispy bits – this is wonderful flavour

Pour the chicken stock over the chops and bake in 180c fan-forced oven for about 45 minutes

Give the pan a shake a couple of times during cooking to ensure it doesn’t stick

Serve with a green salad

 

Bon Appetit!  🙂
