Skillet Pork Chop Saute with Peaches

Besides the Funky Fusion Fajitas recipe, this is by far the best new meal that we've had in a very long time. It was light, yet had incredible flavor. The peaches, shallots & thyme together created an amazing taste, without being overwhelming or too sweet. A definite family pleasing dinner. Can't wait to make again. And only 235 calories and 8.6 grams of fat per serving (makes 4 servings)!

2 teaspoons olive oil
4 (4oz) center cut boneless pork loin chops, trimmed
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
2 TBS thinly sliced shallots
2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
2 peaches, each cut into 8 wedges
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup fat free, low sodium chicken broth
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons butter

1. Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil to pan, swirl to coat. Sprinkle chops evenly with the salt & pepper. Add chops to heated pan; cook for a few minutes on each side until done. Remove chops from pan & keep warm.

2. Add shallots, thyme & peaches to pan, cook for about 2 minutes.

3. Stir in wine, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 2 minutes). Then stir in broth & honey; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/3 cup again.

4. Remove from heat; stir in butter. Spoon sauce over chops. Enjoy!
