Remove skillet from oven. Place pork chops on a platter and cover with aluminum foil; allow to rest a few minutes to redistribute the juices. Meanwhile, place skillet on stove-top on medium-high heat. Add a dollop of butter and a tablespoon of flour to hot pan. Stir to incorporate flour into butter. Add 1 cup chicken broth.

  1. These look good. Will have to try, although I prefer to leave my house (and the kids with a sitter) for our too few Date Nights! Thanks for linking up with Funtastic Friday.

    1. I hear ya! When the kids were little I needed to get away – but now that they’re all adults I love to spend date night at home – we cook together and it’s so much fun! 😀💗😀
