Skillet Chop's

There is nothing better than a dish prepared in the old iron skillet. That well seasoned skillet that we use when we want that certain flavor. My iron skillet is more than 40 years old and is one of the first skillets I ever owned for my kitchen. I have several sizes of skillets and large dutch ovens, but this is the skillet that I reach for the most. I am so glad you stopped by today I am making some Skillet Chops and I sure hope you enjoy them.

Place all the sliced onion and minced garlic in the bottom of the skillet, then pour 1/2 cup of water over the onions. Do Not Stir.
Place the seared Pork Chops on top of the onions and squeeze the lime juice over the Pork Chops..
Mix the Greek Yogurt and the Green Chili Enchilada Sauce and pour it on top of the Pork Chops.
Cover and Bake in a 350 degree oven for 30 minutes.
This dish makes its own delicious gravy.

  2. These chops look delicious. I have started using my old iron skillets most all the time. I received 3 from my mom when I got married and they are the old ones. I also have an old iron dutch oven that my aunt gave us and I use it some.

  15. This dish sounds wonderful. Can sour cream be used instead of Greek yogurt and are the pork chops bone in and thin cut? As always thank you for all your great recipes and inspiration!!

    1. Thanks so much Kitchen Monkey! You sure could use Sour Cream instead of Greek Yogurt and the pork chops are regular cut bone in. It is a great recipe and sure hope you enjoy it! Have a great weekend!
