4 boneless pork loin chops (3/4 inch thick and 4 ounces each)
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup apple cider or juice
4 ounces cream cheese, cubed
1 tablespoon honey, optional
In a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs and almonds. In another shallow bowl, mix flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Place eggs in a separate shallow bowl. Dip pork chops in flour to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add pork chops; cook 3-4 minutes on each side or until a thermometer reads 145°. Remove; keep warm. Wipe skillet clean.
In same skillet over medium heat, combine apple cider, cream cheese, remaining salt and, if desired, honey. Cook and stir 2 minutes. Serve with pork chops; sprinkle with chives.
