Once pan is hot place pork chops in the skillet and brown on each side for 4-5 minutes per side, or until a crust has formed.Once pork chops have brown, remove chop and place on a plate and cover with aluminum foil. Then in the skillet on a medium high heat add in the mushrooms for 2 minutes, then add in the garlic. Allow for garlic to get fragrant for 1 minute or so and add in the apples, onions and thyme. Cook for 10 minutes until the apples and onions are nice and tender. Add the butter and flour in and stir for 2 minutes until the flour becomes a golden color, then whisk in wine and ¼ cup chicken stock. (If you find your sauce to be a little thick you can add in more chicken stock.) And finally stir in the parsley.Add the pork chops back into the skillet and work them into the sauce. Reduce the heat to a medium low and cover for an additional 10-15 minutes or until the pork chops reach an internal temperature of 155 degrees, which is about a medium-slightly pink in the center.
