    Makes 4 servings

    Nonstick cooking spray
    2 1/2 cups cooked brown rice
    4 green onions, sliced (1/2 cup)
    1/3 cup apple juice
    1/4 cup chopped toasted walnuts (optional)
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/8 tsp. pepper
    1 tsp. dried thyme, crushed
    1/4 tsp. salt
    1/4 to 1/2 tsp. pepper
    4 boneless pork loin chops, cut 1/2 to 3/4-inch thick (about 12 oz. total)

    In a small bowl stir together the thyme, 1/4 tsp. salt and the 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. pepper. Rub onto both sides of chops. Cook chops in skillet over med.-high heat until browned, turning once. Arrange browned chops on top of rice mixture. Pour remaining apple juice over chops.

    Bake, covered, in 350* oven about 30 min. or until no pink remains in chops and juices run clear. Transfer chops to serving plates. Stir chopped pear and blue cheese into hot rice mixture; serve with chops.
