Pork Chop-7Thick boneless pork chops are ideal for this dish.
Pork Chop new-1-7First, pork chops are seasoned and dredged in flour mixture, that is full of flavor from onion powder, garlic powder and Italian seasoning.
Next, you pan sear the pork on each side until browned and then make a simple creamy wine sauce for the pork that is spooned on top as well!
Pork Chop new-1-5I seared the pork chops on medium high heat for about 4 minutes on each side and my pork chops were pretty thick. Make sure to leave them slightly underdone as they tend to dry out rather fast. Remember that you will be reheating these pork chops in the sauce later on and they will cook there for a little bit as well.
The amazing creamy white wine sauce is made with a few simple ingredients: white wine, juice of a fresh lemon, chicken stock, thyme, garlic and cream. A little bit of flour is added for thickening, but if you are gluten free, feel free to omit it.

To make the base of this creamy garlic & herb sauce: Add 2 tablespoons butter and minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Add flour to the butter mixture and start pouring in wine while still on medium heat. Squeeze lemon into the pan and add chicken stock.
And it’s at this point that you add heavy cream, followed by the leaves of fresh thyme and Italian seasoning. Next season with salt and pepper, taste it, adjust seasoning and simmer for 2-3 minutes. Taste the sauce again and add more seasoning, if necessary.
By the way, for wine, I used Pinot Grigio.

To lighten up this recipe: use half-n-half instead of heavy cream, or omit it altogether and replace with chicken broth.

To make it gluten-free: Do not dredge pork chops in flour, instead simply season them with the same spices. In the sauce, replace wheat flour with rice or corn flour, or omit it completely.

Ingredients
Pork Chops
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Creamy Sauce:
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tbsp flour (or use leftover flour from pork chops dredging)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 lemon (juice of fresh lemon)
  • 1/2 cup chicken stock
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 4 sprigs fresh thyme (leaves only)

Instructions

  1. Dry mixture: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, garlic powder, onion powder, Italian seasoning and season generously with salt and pepper.

  2. Cooking pork chops: Dredge pork chops thoroughly in dry mixture, then heat 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Once hot, add pork chops and sear them by cooking for 4-5 minutes per side for a total of 8-10 minutes. Remove pork from heat and transfer to a plate. Cover to keep warm.

  4. Creamy garlic & herb sauce: Return skillet to heat, add 2 tablespoons butter and minced garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes on medium heat. Add flour to the butter mixture and start pouring in wine while still on medium heat – about 1 minute. Next squeeze lemon into the pan, add chicken stock and heavy cream. Add fresh thyme and Italian seasoning, season with salt and pepper (to taste). Simmer for 2-3 minutes. Taste the sauce and add more seasoning, if necessary.

  5. Adding pork chops to the sauce: Reduce heat to low and return pork chops to pan. Depending on the thickness of your pork chops, you might just need to heat them up a bit. Drizzle some of the sauce over pork chops and reheat on low for 2-3 minutes or until pork chops are done.
