Directions

  1. Heat oven to 400° F. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Season the chops with the paprika, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side.
  3. Transfer the chops to a rimmed baking sheet and roast in the oven until cooked through, 10 to 12 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, return the skillet to medium heat. Add the scallions and raisins and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds.
  5. Add the spinach and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Cook, tossing, until just wilted, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir in the lemon juice. Serve with the chops.
