Recipe Notes

  • The thicker your pork chops are, the longer it will take to cook them through.
  • If you don't like mushrooms, simply omit them.
  • To reduce sodium, use low-sodium chicken broth and low-sodium Cajun seasoning.

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Season the pork chops with some Cajun seasoning. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a skillet or cast iron pan. Cook until browned on both sides and almost cooked through, about 5 to 8 minutes depending on thickness of chops. Remove to a plate and set aside.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil in the same skillet. Add the mushrooms, onion, garlic and Cajun seasoning. Cook until mushrooms and onions are soft. Add the broth and cream cheese spread and stir until smooth. Season with salt and pepper, if needed. 
  3. Add the pork chops back to the pan and heat through.
