Trim any separable fat from chops. In a 12-inch skillet brown chops on both sides in hot oil over medium-high heat. Sprinkle chops lightly with lemon-pepper seasoning.
In a 3-quart rectangular baking dish stir together the rice mix and seasoning packet. Combine undrained apples, vinegar, and water; pour evenly over rice. Top with chops. Cover dish tightly with foil.
Bake in a 350 degree F oven for 45 to 50 minutes or until rice and chops are tender and juices run clear. Makes 6 servings.
