This creamy basil sauce is great on pork chops and also on chicken.

  • Servings: 4
  • Prep Time: 10 minutes
  • Cook Time: 20 minutes
  • Total Time: 30 minutes


3 Tbsp Olive or Canola Oil
4 tsp Minced Garlic
½ tsp Salt
¼ tsp Pepper
4 Pork Loin Chops, trimmed of fat and cut ½" thick
½ cup Light Cream
2 Tbsp Fresh Basil, chopped


In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat, then add garlic, salt and pepper. Saute for 2 minutes. Add chops, then saute 10 minutes on each side or until no longer pink inside. Remove chops to a large plate and keep warm. Whisk cream and basil into pan drippings, cook 3 minutes, or until sauce starts to thicken. Pour sauce over chops.

Helpful Tips:

You can use 2 tsp freeze dried basil in place of the fresh, but fresh makes the sauce taste richer. I usually use this sauce for chicken, but only had pork chops. I think this sauce is better with the chops!
