Stuffed Pork Chops
4 bone-in pork loin chops (8 ounces each)
2 cups cooked stuffing
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 tablespoon canola oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3/4 cup chicken broth
Cut a pocket in each chop by slicing almost to the bone. Fill each chop with 1/2 cup stuffing; secure with toothpicks if necessary. Sprinkle with pepper. In a large ovenproof skillet, brown chops in oil. Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 25-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°. Remove pork chops and set aside. Keep warm.
In the same skillet, cook garlic and thyme in pan drippings over medium heat for 1 minute. Add wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. In a small bowl, combine flour and broth until smooth. Gradually add to pan. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened. Remove toothpicks from pork chops; serve chops with gravy. Makes 4 servings.
