  • 1 tablespoon dried tarragon
  • 1/2 cup dry Champagne

Directions

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Season both sides of pork with salt, black pepper, thyme and tarragon. Add chops to hot skillet and cook 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. Add Champagne and cook 1 minute.

Remove 4 chops from skillet and set aside.

Whisk together milk and flour until flour dissolves. Add milk mixture to skillet and bring to a simmer. Simmer 3 minutes, until sauce thickens and chops are cooked through.
