Onion Pan-Fried Pork Chops Recipe

I made this one day because I wanted something different than the same old fried pork chops (which is what my husband asked me to cook that day). So I quickly came up with it and he loved it.

Now he asks for them every time. I cook with boneless and bone-in pork chops. So no matter what type you have on hand, just cook them and enjoy.

Onion pan-fried pork chops are a delicious and easy meal that can be prepared in just a few simple steps. Here’s a recipe to get you started:


  • 4 bone-in pork chops
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 large onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Season the pork chops generously with salt and pepper on both sides.
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork chops to the skillet and cook for 4-5 minutes on each side until they are browned and cooked through. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and cover with foil to keep warm.
  3. In the same skillet, add the butter and onions. Cook the onions until they are softened and starting to caramelize, about 10 minutes. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  4. Add the chicken broth, Dijon mustard, honey, and thyme to the skillet with the onions. Stir to combine and bring the mixture to a simmer.
  5. Add the pork chops back to the skillet and spoon the onion mixture over the top of the pork chops.
  6. Cover the skillet with a lid and let the pork chops cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until heated through and the flavors have melded together.
  7. Serve the onion pan-fried pork chops hot, garnished with additional thyme if desired. Enjoy!
