Skillet Pork Chops with Zucchini Recipe

Skillet Pork Chops with Zucchini Recipe

My husband and I live on a small farm with our two young sons. We're always blessed with plenty of zucchini from our garden in summer, so I try lots of different zucchini recipes. This is one of my family's favorites. —Diane Banaszak, West Bend, Wisconsin
