Tuscan Pork Chops (or Chicken) With Rosemary

Print PrintShare with Friends


I just love this sauce, and it is so easy to put together, too. Though I haven't tried it with chicken yet, I think it would be great with 4 chicken breast fillets substituted for the pork chops--simply increase the simmering time (in step number 6).
