  • 4 inch boneless pork chops, trimmed of fat, about 1/2- thick
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup your favorite salsa


  • Season both sides of the pork chops
  • Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium-high heat. Place the pork chops in the hot oil and brown about 3 minutes per side.
  • Remove the pork chops from the pan and set aside on a plate. Add the chicken broth to the pan and "deglaze" the pan, scraping up the brown bits with a wooden spoon.
  • Add the salsa and stir together well. Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer 3-4 minutes.
  • Return the pork chops to the pan and spoon a little of the sauce over the tops of each pork chop.
  • Cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes or until pork chops are completely cooked through.
