There's nothing quite like a piece of perfectly cooked meat with a dollop of melting butter forging minuscule rivers of flavor in the nooks and crannies. We've provided you all the elements here: Fried sage is both delicate and crispy and adds the perfect herbaceous hint when joining sweet honey in the butter. Crunchy broccoli and hazelnuts round out this easy-to-make, delightful-to-eat weekday meal.
Tip: How to mince sage: stack the leaves, then ball them up. Hold them with your non-knife hand, using that hand to guide you as you slice. Then rock your knife back and forth until the sage is minced!

You Will Need
Medium Oven-Safe Pan
Before You Cook
Fry the Sage
Line a plate with a paper towel.
Heat 1 Tbsp. olive oil in a medium oven-safe pan over medium heat. Add half the sage (reserve remaining for garnish) to hot pan and stir constantly until leaves are crispy and slightly darker in color, 1-2 minutes.
Transfer sage to towel-lined plate.
Reserve pan; no need to wipe clean.
Prepare Ingredients and Roast Broccoli
Cut broccoli into large bite-sized pieces.
Mince remaining sage.
Pat pork chops dry, and season both sides with ½ tsp. salt and a pinch of pepper.
Place broccoli, hazelnuts, and garlic on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ½ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Spread into a single layer and roast in hot oven until browned and fork-tender, 14-16 minutes.
While broccoli roasts, sear pork chops.
Sear the Pork Chops
Return pan used to crisp sage to medium-high heat.
Add pork chops to hot pan. Cook undisturbed until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes.
If using chicken, add to hot pan and cook undisturbed until browned, 4-5 minutes.
Finish the Pork Chops
Flip pork chops, seared side up.
Place pan in oven and roast until chops are browned and reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 8-10 minutes.
If using chicken, flip seared side up and place pan in oven. Roast until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 8-10 minutes.
Carefully, remove chops from pan and rest, 1-2 minutes.
While chops rest, make butter.
Make the Sage and Honey Butter
Crumble fried sage into a mixing bowl. Combine with softened butter, honey, and a pinch of pepper.
