Delicious! I love the simplicity of this dish, but it has a lot of flavor. I used boneless chicken breasts and didn't use a full half cup of oil, I didn't see that it was necessary. I served these over spaghetti tossed in olive oil, sundried tomatoes and herbs and it was a big hit. Thanks for posting!

Great pork chop recipe! My chops weren't an inch thick so I just reduced my cooking time a little in the skillet and a little in the oven. I hate to inform you Chef Blade, but this does not serve 4 only served 2...oink, oink!
