NUTRITION INFO
Ingredients
  • 1 pound frozen Tater Tots
  • 2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 12 ounces green beans, trimmed and halved
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 3/4 -inch-thick boneless center-cut pork chops (1 1/2 pounds)
  • 3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/2 cup low-sodium chicken broth
Directions
  • Bake the Tater Tots as the label directs. Transfer to a bowl; add the parmesan, season with salt and pepper and toss. Set aside.

  • Meanwhile, bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the green beans and cook until tender, about 5 minutes. Drain and transfer to a medium bowl; toss with 1 tablespoon butter, the lemon zest, and salt and pepper to taste. Cover to keep warm.

  • Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper; add to the skillet and cook until browned, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate and let rest.

  • Add the garlic to the skillet and cook until lightly browned, about 30 seconds. Add the lemon juice and chicken broth; cook until reduced by half, about 3 minutes. Swirl in the remaining 3 tablespoons butter. Spoon the pan sauce over the pork chops and serve with the Tater Tots and green beans.
