Expert Tips

Serve with roasted potato wedges to complete the meal.

If you aren’t a pork fan, this would work equally well with boneless skinless chicken breasts. The cooking time may be longer, depending on the thickness of the chicken.

You can substitute your favorite herb for the chives, and sprinkle with chopped green onion tops instead.
