1 sprig fresh Thyme, or 1 tsp dried thyme
For the Pork Chops:
Prepare the oven and preheat to 200 degrees C or 400 degrees F.

For the French Onion Sauce:
Add 4 tbsp of butter into the same skillet, then allow it to melt on medium-low heat.
Add the onions and cook until caramelized. Make sure to stir from time to time.
Add the rest of the butter and mushrooms. Saute for about 5 minutes.
Add the garlic and saute until aromatic.
Add 1 tbsp of flour and toss everything until well mixed.
Add the white wine and scrape the bottom of the skillet to get the brown bits.
Simmer for a few minutes.
Add the fresh thyme and chicken broth. Stir until well mixed. Simmer for about 15 minutes or until the texture of the sauce becomes thick.
