  • 4 pork chops (if you're looking for a richer cut, try a rib chop. For a leaner cut, try a loin chop.)
  • 1 teaspoon salt 
  • 1 teaspoon pepper 
  • 2 teaspoon paprika 
  • 2 teaspoon garlic powder 
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil 
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth 
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream 
  • Fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


1. Pat defrosted chops dry with paper towel, then season both sides with salt, pepper, paprika and garlic powder. if you're looking for more of a crust, include 2 tablespoons of plain flour.  

2. On a high sided pan, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. If your meat cut is fattier, reduce 2 tablespoons to 1 tablespoon. 

3. Add the pork chops to the skillet and sear for about 3-4 minutes on both sides until brown. If you're looking for more of a crust, cook pork chops 2 at a time to reduce crowding.

4. Reduce heat to a medium-low and pour in the chicken broth. When the broth is simmering, cover and cook for 10-15 more minutes until pork chops are cooked through. If you're using a leaner cut of meat, have a meat thermometer nearby to reduce overcooking.

5. Remove the pork chops from a pan and put aside. Pour heavy cream slowly into the pan, stirring constantly. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until the sauce has thickened to your desired consistency. 

6. Return pork chops to the pan and 'baste' them with sauce. Pour spoonfuls of source over them and cook for an additional few minutes to further thicken the sauce and bring the pork chops back to temperature.

7. Plate with fresh parsley sprinkled over the top. Serve with mashed potato and a seasonal salad, or roast vegetables.
