    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Boneless, center cut pork loin chops 2 (5-ounce)
    Herbs de Provence (eg, savory, fennel, basil, thyme) 1 teaspoon
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Fresh ground pepper to taste
    Olive oil 2 teaspoons
    Reduced-sodium chicken broth 1/3 cup
    Directions
    1. Place pork chops between 2 pieces of plastic wrap and pound until about ½- to ¾-inch thick. Season the pork with the herbs de Provence, salt, and pepper.
    2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork and cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side.
    3. Reduce heat and add the broth. Scrape the brown bits off the bottom of the pan, then cover and simmer for 2-4 minutes, until pork is cooked through. Portion pork onto plates and drizzle with the sauce.
