  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 3 medium nectarines or peeled peaches, cut into 1/2-inch slices
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon honey, optional


  1. Sprinkle pork chops with seasonings. Dredge lightly with flour. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook chops until a thermometer reads 145°, 4-5 minutes per side. Remove from pan; keep warm.
  2. Add onion to same pan; cook and stir over medium heat 2 minutes. Add garlic; cook and stir 1 minute. Add nectarines; cook until lightly browned on both sides. Stir in broth and, if desired, honey; bring to a boil. Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, until nectarines are softened and sauce is slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve with chops.
