FOR THE PORK CHOPS
Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops and cook for about 6 to 7 minutes, turning once, or until cooked through. Remove to a plate and cover to keep warm.
FOR THE CREAMY MUSHROOM SAUCE
Add butter to the pan and melt. Stir in mushrooms; cook, stirring frequently until the mushrooms are browned, about 3 minutes.
Add garlic and continue to cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Stir in chicken broth or wine and cook for 2 minutes, or until the liquid is mostly evaporated.
Stir in half-and-half and dried herbs; cook until simmering, about a minute.
Place the pork chops back into the skillet and cook for 1 more minute, or until heated through. Plate the pork chops and top with the mushroom sauce. Serve.
