  • 4 boneless pork chops 6oz each, 1 inch thick
  • ½ cup Parmesan Cheese grated
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning or any other dried herbs you'd like
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • ½ tsp paprika smoked or sweet
  • ½ tsp poultry seasoning or seasoning salt
  • fresh ground pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • tbsp butter divided
  • 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tsp honey
  • chopped fresh parsley to garnish


  • Let pork chops sit at room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.
  • Combine grated cheese, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, seasoning salt, and ground pepper in a small mixing bowl.
  • Pat dry pork chops with paper towels and season with prepared spice rub on all sides.
  • Heat olive oil and ½ tablespoon butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet that also comes with a lid.
  • Once oil is hot and butter just melted, add pork chops to the skillet and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until browned on the bottom.
  • Flip over the pork chops; cook for 1 minute.
  • Reduce heat to low and cover the skillet. If you don’t have a lid, you can cover it with aluminum foil, but make sure to cover it well, tucking it in on all sides.
  • Cook for 9 to 12 minutes, or until an Instant Read Thermometer registers at 145˚F. Cooking time depends on the thickness and overall size of the pork chops. Start checking for doneness at around the 8 minute mark.
  • When done, remove pork from skillet and set aside.
  • Set the same skillet over medium-high heat and slowly pour in the chicken broth; start whisking and scraping the bottom of the pan to get all those browned bits.
  • Bring to a steady simmer and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until sauce is reduced by half.
  • Whisk in honey.
  • Remove skillet from heat and add remaining 1 tablespoon butter; swirl it around until completely melted.
  • Add pork chops back into the skillet and spoon sauce over each pork chops.
  • Garnish with parsley and serve.
