With a small sharp knife, cut a small incision horizontally in the fat side of the chop. Work the knife around to make a pocket large enough to accommodate the stuffing. Heat 1 tsp/5 mL oil in a skillet over medium heat; fry onions and garlic until onions are soft. Add diced apple and cook for another minute. In a mixing bowl, combine breadcrumbs, pecans, parsley, sage, mustard and remaining 1 tsp/5 mL oil; add onion mixture and stir well. Divide mixture into four and stuff the chops. Pre-heat grill or barbecue on high; reduce heat to medium. Grill chops on lightly oiled grill over medium heat, turning once, about 12 minutes total. Internal temperature of meat (not stuffing) should register 155-160ºF (68-71ºC). Do not overcook. Remove from heat. Cover loosely and let rest a few minutes before serving.
