  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)


  1. Season the pork chops generously with salt and black pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the pork chops and sear them for about 4-5 minutes on each side until they are nicely browned and cooked through. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and cover them to keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, add the chopped onions and sauté for about 2 minutes until they become translucent. Add the minced garlic and sliced mushrooms, and continue to cook for another 5 minutes until the mushrooms are tender and slightly browned.
  4. Pour in the chicken broth, heavy cream, dried thyme, and paprika. Stir well to combine, and bring the mixture to a simmer. Let it simmer for about 5-7 minutes, allowing the sauce to thicken.
  5. Return the seared pork chops to the skillet, and simmer for an additional 2-3 minutes, ensuring the pork chops are heated through and coated in the creamy mushroom sauce.
  6. Garnish with chopped fresh parsley if desired.
  7. Serve your Skillet Pork Chops with Mushroom Sauce hot, and enjoy the delightful flavors!


  • You can adjust the thickness of the sauce by simmering it for a longer or shorter duration, depending on your preference.
  • This dish pairs wonderfully with mashed potatoes or steamed vegetables as side dishes.
