Creamy Braised Pork Chops (or Chicken)

If you’ve got a weakness for delicious sauces (like me), then you’ll love this braised pork recipe! My family was literally scraping every last bit of this sauce from the pan and pouring whatever they could spare over their mashed potatoes.

And the pork in this recipe could easily be replaced with chicken if you desire. Just be sure to increase the cooking time since a chicken breast is likely to be a lot thicker than a thin pork chop. Enjoy!

  • In a small bowl mix together the paprika, onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper until well combined. Sprinkle over both sides of the pork chops until evenly coated. 
  • Melt 2 tablespoons of the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Sear the pork chops until golden brown on both sides, about 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  • Add the heavy cream and the rest of the butter to the pan, turn the heat down to low, and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes more, until the pork is done all the way through (no longer pink in the middle). Remove the lid and let the sauce thicken for another minute and serve.

    Just made the Creamy Braised Pork Chops tonight for dinner, and they were outstanding!! My family actually fought over them. They were so easy to make, and the sauce was great.

    Thank you!!!

    1. Hi Debbie, the broccoli recipe can be found in Lisa’s “On a Budget” cookbook! It’s called Stir-Fry Broccoli. – Nicole

  2. This was so unbelievably delicious! My 6th grader picked this recipe from the new cookbook and I have seriously never seen her eat so much!!

    These were great, even my kids liked them and that’s always a huge win. It’s a super simple dinner to throw together. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

      We’ve not tried coconut milk in this recipe but it is my typical sub for cream in many recipes. If you give it a try, let us know how it turns out.

    I made this dish, and my family loved it. I did simmer the pork chops for 30 minutes so that they would be tender (and they were). I served the pork chops over brown rice that I added finely chopped fresh parsley to. Steamed peas rounded out the meal. Yummy!

  5. I have an almost identical recipe for smothered pork chops that uses buttermilk instead of heavy cream. Before turning up you nose, try it. Surprisingly good!!
