Brined & Roasted Double Pork Chops

I made up this recipe today and I was very happy with the results. This was the first time I brined pork chops,they wee so flavorful and juicy,I surprised myself!
I love apples with pork chops and I also love garlic with pork.If you aren't a fan,you don't have to add the whole garlic cloves or the apples.
Since the pork chop was so thick,I sliced it off the bone,then sliced the pork chop in medium thin slices,about 8 slices.With sides,it was plenty for two people.
