Heat the oil in a skillet and brown the pork chops on both sides. Remove most of the oil until 2 teaspoons remain, sauté the chopped onions for about 7 minutes or until golden brown.

Mix into the lentils and arrange the pork chops over the lentils. Cover and bake in a 350ºF oven for 1 hour or until pork chops and lentils are tender, removing the cover for the last 15 minutes
