Total Time20 mins


    • 1.5 lb center-cut boneless pork chops
    • 1/2 medium onion sliced
    • 2 garlic cloves minced
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
    • 1 oz cream cheese
    • 1/3 cup chicken broth
    • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese
    • 1/2 cup cheddar cheese
    • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
    • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • salt to taste



    • Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and let it heat up for a minute.
    • Season the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
    • Add the seasoned pork chops, onions, and garlic to the skillet and cook for about 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Make sure not to overcrowd the skillet. If needed, cook the pork chops in batches to cook them evenly.
    • Remove the cooked pork chops from the skillet and place them on a plate. Set aside.
  • Reduce the heat to medium and add the heavy whipping cream, cream cheese, chicken broth, parmesan cheese, cheddar cheese, Italian seasoning, pepper, and salt to the skillet. Use a whisk to combine the ingredients until the cheese has melted and the sauce is smooth.
  • Continue to stir the sauce continuously over medium heat until it thickens. This should take about 8-10 minutes.
  • Once the sauce has thickened, add the pork chops back to the skillet, making sure they are coated with the sauce.
  • Reduce the heat to low and let the pork chops simmer in the sauce for about 5 minutes or until the pork chops are cooked through and the sauce has thickened even further.
  • Once done, serve the pork chops hot with the creamy garlic parmesan sauce drizzled over them.


Tips to make the best Keto Pork Chops

  • Use a meat thermometer: To ensure that your pork chops are cooked to perfection, use a meat thermometer to check the internal temperature. Pork should be cooked to an internal temperature of 145°F.
  • Grate your cheese: Pre-shredded cheese often contains anti-caking agents and fillers, which can affect the texture and taste of the dish. To get the best flavor and texture, grate your cheese from a block
  • Add vegetables: This recipe pairs well with a variety of vegetables, such as asparagus, broccoli, or green beans. To add some extra nutrition to the dish, sauté the vegetables in the same skillet before making the sauce.
  • Adjust the seasoning to your taste: The seasoning measurements in the recipe are just a guideline. Feel free to adjust the amounts of Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper to your taste.


How to Store in the Fridge:

  • Transfer the pork chops to an airtight container or a resealable storage bag. If using a resealable storage bag, make sure to remove as much air as possible to prevent the meat from drying out.
  • Place the container or bag in the refrigerator and store for up to 3-4 days.

How to Reheat:

  • Heat the pork chops in the microwave on a microwave-safe plate for 1-2 minutes or until heated through. Alternatively, you can reheat them on the stovetop in a skillet over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until heated through.
  • the sauce has thickened while in the fridge; you can add a splash of chicken broth or heavy cream to loosen it up. Simply pour the liquid into the skillet with the pork chops and stir until the sauce is heated through and smooth.

I do not recommend freezing these pork chops due to the dairy content, as it would comprise the taste and texture.
