Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 10-15 minutes
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
8 4-oz. boneless pork chops
½ c. chicken broth, preferably organic
6 oz. cream cheese, cut into small pieces
3 T. fresh chives, finely chopped
Salt and black pepper, to taste
Additional fresh chives, finely chopped, for garnish
Heat olive oil in a large, heavy-duty skillet
over medium-high heat.
Season pork chops on each side with
salt and pepper, if desired, and add to pre-heated skillet. Brown pork chops on
each side, approximately 3 minutes per side. Remove pork chops from the pan and set them aside on a rimmed dish to collect juices.
Reduce heat to medium and add chicken
broth and cream cheese to the skillet. Gently scrape the bottom of the pan to loosen
brown bits and continue stirring until the cheese is completely melted approximately 4-5 minutes.
Add juices from the plate holding the
pork chops to the skillet. Stir to combine liquids, then add pork chops. Cook
for 1-2 additional minutes. Remove from heat and stir in chopped chives.
5. Transfer the pork chops to individual serving plates and top with creamy pan sauce. Garnish with additional chives, if desired, and serve immediately with your choice of sides.
