Made with a creamy garlic butter sauce, these Fried Pork Chops with Zucchini are a tender and delicious dinner recipe. These easy and healthy pork chops are going to become a family favorite weeknight meal!
Season pork chops with salt, pepper, and paprika.
Cut a few slits in the fat surrounding the pork chops. This will help with keeping the chops from curling up while frying.
Heat butter and 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat.
Add the pork chops to the hot oil and cook for 5 minutes per side, or until cooked through. Pork chops are cooked through when internal temperature reaches 140˚F. Use an instant read thermometer for best results.
Also, cooking time will depend on the thickness of the pork chops; they should be up to 1/2-inch thick.
In the meantime, prepare the garlic butter by combining butter, garlic powder, dried basil, dried parsley, and dried oregano; mash with a fork until thoroughly incorporated.
Remove pork chops from skillet; keep covered.
Set skillet over medium-high heat and add remaining oil.
Add zucchini slices to the hot oil; season with salt and pepper, and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, or until tender. Remove from skillet.
Transfer pork chops and zucchini to a serving plate.
Add a dollop of garlic butter to each pork chop and serve!
