Place meat on platter. Cover and cook on HIGH 4 minutes. Turn chops, rotate platter and cook 5 minutes more. Remove from oven, cover, and set aside.
Place apple and onion in microwave-safe bowl. Cover tightly and microwave on HIGH 2 or 3 minutes.
In a small bowl, combine cider, Gravy Master, cornstarch, sage and thyme. Stir to dissolve cornstarch and pour over apples and onions.
