You can have these fast pork chops on the table in just 30 minutes! Serve up these easy pork chops with a rice pilaf (my favorite!) or mashed/roasted potatoes and a vegetable. Get your sides cooking while you are making the chops and everything will be ready to go for a fast dinner. The pan sauce also works great as a sauce or gravy for the starch and vegetable, so double up those ingredients if you want extra sauce!
Use any kind of pork chop that you have or prefer. Both bone in or boneless pork chops work well. Bone in chops tend to provide a little more flavor in cooking. A typical chop portion size is around 5 or 6 ounces when boneless, or 8 ounces with bone in. If you go larger, just cook a little longer to your preferred doneness. This sauce would also work great if making a pork tenderloin!
Making your own honey mustard sauce is so simple. It really is based on just that: honey and mustard. I like to add a little garlic powder because it just does something magical to the sauce. And use more honey if you want it on the sweeter side. I prefer it to be more on the mustard, slightly spicy side which is what this recipe does. Adding a woodsy herb like rosemary or thyme is completely optional but a great way to add a little more flavor in the sauce, especially if you have some on hand that you want to use up.

- 4 pork chops (approximately 5-6 ounces boneless, or 8 ounces with bone)
