Heat a pan or barbecue and cook for 3-4 minutes on each side, depending on thickness, until golden.

Serve the chops with the vegetables and your favourite potatoes or some crusty bread.
Boulangere Potatoes are delicious if you have time – simply layer some thinly sliced potatoes and shallots or onions in a baking dish. Add seasoning and a few more knobs of butter as you do the layers. Finish off with some chicken stock. Bake for 40 minutes until the potatoes are tender.
