5) Mix the onions, bagel and applesauce together. Stir well to coat.
6) Add 1 cup of chicken broth, toss well.
7) Set mixture aside for 3 minutes. If bagels are still a little dry after 3 minutes, add more chicken stock. Set the stuffing aside.
8) To make the pork chops, place the previously used frying pan over medium high heat.
9) Once the oil left in the pan starts to sizzle, add the pork chops and cook for 2 minutes on each side.
10) Transfer the chops to a baking dish. Set the pan aside.
11) On top of each pork chop, place a generous scoop of the stuffing.
