Saucy Pork Chop Skillet Recipe

Saucy Pork Chop Skillet Recipe

I like this skillet dinner because it`s quick , but mostly because it`s really good. Served over brown rice or whole grain noodles, it is healthier than most comfort food dinners. I like this dinner because it a meal in 30 min. I fix this a lot because my family ask for it and it does not cost a lot to feed 6 people. With a salad and fruit it`s a good meal.
