I just love this sauce, and it is so easy to put together, too. Though I haven't tried it with chicken yet, I think it would be great with 4 chicken breast fillets substituted for the pork chops--simply increase the simmering time (in step number 6).
- 4 boneless pork chops, 3/4 inch thick
- 10 sun-dried tomatoes, coarsely chopped (NOT oil-packed)
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1⁄4 cup madeira wine
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 shallot, finely chopped
- 2 garlic cloves, finely minced
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup cold water
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- In a small saucepan, cover the sun-dried tomato pieces with chicken broth and madeira; bring to a boil, remove from heat and allow to stand about 10 minutes to plump the tomatoes.
- Heat the olive oil in a large non-stick skillet over medium-heat.
- Add the pork chops and brown on both sides; remove from skillet and set aside.
- Add shallots and garlic to the skillet and cook briefly (till they become fragrant).
- Stir in tomatoes with the liquid and chopped rosemary.
- Return the chops to the skillet, cover tightly and cook over low heat (just simmering) for 5 to 6 minutes (longer as needed for chicken breasts) until they are cooked through.
- Remove the meat from the skillet to serving platter.
- Combine water and cornstarch; add to the skillet.
- Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the sauce thickens.
- Top the meat with the sauce and serve.
This recipe was very easy to make. Other than using bone-in chops, I did not alter the recipe at all. The prep was minimal, which was good for a weeknight. We liked the sauce, but maybe not enough to make again. Thanks!
Tasty and tender pork chops. I felt that it needed something so I added several chopped kalamata olives.
This was really good! My husband loved it...he said it tasted Tuscan before I even told him what is was called. I didn't have any wine on hand, so just used more chicken broth. I also used oil packed tomatoes blotted really well and dried rosemary. I stuck my sauce in a food chopper right before adding the cornstarch/water slurry. Great recipe!
