Add the oil to a large sauté pan. Brown the chops on both sides; reduce the heat and continue cooking until no pink remains and the meat is well cooked. Remove to a platter and keep warm.

Combine the wine, broth, honey, thyme, salt and mustard in the sauté pan and bring the mixture to a boil. Boil for 5 minutes. Combine the cornstarch and vinegar and add it to the wine mixture. Bring to a boil and boil for one minute. Stir in the cherries.

Return the chops to the pan and heat through before serving.
