I can't recall where I first saw this idea to combine pork chops and apple pie filling, but I thought it sounded great and turns out I had a can of apple pie filling in the pantry I needed to use up!

I'm sure that I bought it for a very specific reason, now long forgotten. I'm terrible about that, to the point that now, when I buy supplies for the pantry to use for a specific purpose later, I tape a sticky note to it! Now I have notes all over the outside of my deep freeze and a bunch of them stuck on top of canned goods in my pantry. Hilarious, I know, but hey... I ain't gettin' any younger y'all!

Anyway, I was right. Apple Pie Pork Chops are pretty yummy!

Here's one of those tasty things to do with boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Y'all know I'm not the biggest fan of those, but after a dip in some egg and hot sauce, a pass through a nicely seasoned blend of buttery crackers, and a quick pan fry or oven bake, these are some kinda good!

I love using regular saltines as a coating for chicken, instead of the typical flour or bread crumbs, but there's a world of texture difference between saltine crackers and those soft, delicious, buttery round crackers, most of us know as "Ritz" brand. Where saltines are crisp and jagged, Ritz crackers are tender - kind of like the difference in the texture of soft bread crumbs and dried.
