This comforting, satisfying, perfect for a chilly night recipe takes about 20 minutes to make and only requires 9 ingredients. Pounding the pork chops to an even thickness means they'll brown quickly for maximum flavor. In the same skillet, you'll cook the broth, onion powder, garlic powder, paprika, and sour cream. It's an intensely delicious, silky sauce that tastes amazing with the pork. The addition of Swiss chard keeps things light and healthy and balances out the other ingredients. For an extra kick of heat, you can substitute hot Hungarian paprika for up to half of the mild paprika in this dish, if you like.


Uncooked lean only pork loin

1 pound(s), 4 (1⁄4-pound), trimmed of fat

Table salt

½ tsp

Black pepper

tsp, freshly ground

Reduced-sodium chicken broth

¾ cup(s)

Onion powder

½ tsp

Garlic powder

¼ tsp

Uncooked Swiss chard

22 oz, stemmed and chopped (2 bunches)


2 Tbsp

Fat free sour cream

2 Tbsp


  1. Place the pork chops between sheets of wax paper. Pound them to 1⁄4-inch thickness using the smooth side of a meat mallet or the bottom of a heavy, large saucepan. Season the chops with the salt and pepper.
  2. Spray a large nonstick skillet with nonstick spray and set over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops and cook until browned and cooked through, about 2 minutes on each side. Transfer to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  3. Stir the broth into the skillet, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan. Stir in the onion powder and garlic powder, then add the chard. Reduce the heat, cover, and simmer about 5 minutes.
  4. Stir in the paprika; cook, uncovered, 20 seconds. Stir in the sour cream and heat 10 seconds; do not allow the sauce to boil. Slip the pork chops and any accumulated juices into the sauce. Cover the skillet and set aside off the heat for 5 minutes before serving. Yields 1 chop with 1⁄2 cup sauce and greens per serving.
