Cooks Tips

This recipe is equally delicious when chicken pieces are used in place of the pork chops. If you choose to do this, you will need to adjust the cooking time; bake the chicken pieces for around 45 minutes. When cooking with chicken, use apples in place of the pears and instead of thyme, try marjoram, oregano or sage.
