    1. Coat large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Heat over medium heat. Add pork chops. Brown 1 or 2 minutes on each side. Remove chops. Meanwhile, drain pears, reserving juice. Combine reserved pear juice, chicken bouillon granules, cinnamon and nutmeg in the same skillet. Bring to boiling. Boil gently, uncovered, about 5 minutes or until reduced by half. Return chops to skillet; add pears. Simmer, covered, for 5 minutes more until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
