This is what i missed these last few months. Having a stocked kitchen (semi at least) and just whipping something up. I love trying new things. It's such a fun challenging outlet for me. I mean I gotta eat.. why not have fun with it. Right?
Since I'll eat just about anything the challenge comes when I must take the husband and child into consideration. I know what they like and don't like and I can usually predict the outcome of my experiments.
This one shocked me.
Both ate without complaint. No faces. No questions. Just a nice peaceful healthy dinner.
*sigh of relief*
My mission is complete. Score one for mommy. 🙂
- 1 lbs thin sliced pork chops with all visible fat removed
- 1 cup (227g) fat free plain yogurt
- 3 cloves of garlic minced
- 1 tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp dried parsley
- ½ tsp dried cilantro
- ½ tsp dried thyme
- ½ tsp dried rosemary
- About 1 and ½ cup chicken broth (separated)
- 1 tbsp corn starch (separated)
- 1 tbsp worcestershire sauce
- nonstick cooking spray
Mix the yogurt, garlic, onion powder, garlic powder, parsley, cilantro, thyme, and rosemary. Coat the pork chops with the yogurt mixture and marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and spray with nonstick cooking spray. Remove the pork chops from the marinade reserving the yogurt mixture. cook the pork chops about 3-4 minutes a side.
While the pork is cooking. Whisk the remaining yogurt mixture with 1 cup chicken broth, ½ tsp corn starch and the worcester sauce.
Remove the pork from the skillet and add the yogurt/broth mixture. Bring to a boil allowing to thicken. If it's not thickening enough mix the remaining ½ cup broth with the corn starch and add to the skillet. Once thickened add the pork back in and lower to a simmer until ready to serve.
We smothered some whole wheat egg noodles with the thicken yogurt/broth mixture and add a bunch of broccoli. It was a perfect meal and I made myself quite a good looking lunch for tomorrow.
I've been trying to calculate the nutritional information all night but my internet connection is not cooperating. I barely got this to post. 🙁
