Turn basic skillet pork chops into a main dish that's company-worthy by drizzling a tangy balsamic glaze over the pork and serving on a bed of long-grain and wild rice.

2 tablespoons butter or margarine
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1 (14 1/2-ounce) can chicken broth
1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
