    Ingredients
    • 4 boneless pork chops , fat trimmed
    • 7 ounces Sun Maid Fruit Bits*
    • 2 shallots , minced
    • 2 cups chicken broth
    • cooking Spray
    • salt and pepper
    Instructions
    1. Heat a large skillet over medium heat, coat with cooking spray. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. 

    2. Cook pork chops for 4 minutes on each side, then remove to a plate. You will be returning them to the pan, so if they are a little underdone it is okay.
    3. In the same pan, re-coat with cooking spray and add shallots. Saute until soft and opaque, approximately 5 minutes.

    4. Add fruit bits and chicken broth, stir over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add pork chops back to the skillet. Cover and cook for 3 minutes.

    5. Turn pork chops and cover and cook for an additional 3 minutes. By this time the majority of the liquid should have evaporated. It will be a little saucy, but not soupy. If it has not, continue to cook a little longer.
    6. Remove from heat, serve pork chops with fruit over top. Enjoy!
