    1. In a medium saucepan combine chicken broth, cinnamon, bay leaves, ginger root and garlic. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat a large heavy skillet over medium-high heat. Brush chops lightly with oil and cook for 10-12 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time. Remove pork chops to a serving platter; keep warm.
    2. Remove bay leaves and cinnamon from chicken broth mixture. Stir in milk, peanut butter and honey until smooth. Cook, uncovered, over medium-high heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in bell pepper, crushed red pepper, and basil leaves. Continue cooking, uncovered, until sauce thickens slightly. Spoon the sauce over chops.
