Pat the pork chops dry with a paper towel and place them in a medium bowl. Add paprika, 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning, salt and pepper, and shake together with pork chops to coat them.
Heat olive oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high until butter is melted. Sear the pork chops for 4 minutes on each side until well browned on both sides. Transfer the pork chops to a plate and set aside.
In the same skillet, add the mushrooms and saute until golden brown.
Keeping the mushrooms in the pan, now add garlic, parsley and remaining 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning and cook for another minute or so. Now add chicken broth and heavy cream, and simmer for 3-4 minutes until slightly thickened and adjust seasoning if needed. Add grated Parmesan to thicken the sauce. I used ¼ cup, but feel free to use up to ½ cup.
Place pork chops and their juices back into the sauce and allow to reheat for 2-3 minutes. Garnish with fresh parsley.
Serve the garlic pork chops over penne pasta or with vegetables.
