  1. Preheat oven to 400º.
  2. Rub the pork chops with ½ tsp salt and ¼ tsp black pepper. Heat skillet over a medium-high heat and brown pork chops, about 2 to 3 minutes per side. Remove chops from heat.
  3. Tear off 4 sheets of aluminum foil or parchment about 12” X 12” or slightly larger. Place a slice of onion on each sheet, ¼ of an apple, a pork chop, another slice of onion and another ¼ of an apple. Sprinkle 1/8 tsp of rosemary and drizzle ½ Tbsp over each packet . Close packets securely, leaving a little room in the packet for steam. Place packets on a rimmed baking sheet or pan and bake in oven for 1 hour.
