Almond Pork Chops with Honey Mustard Recipe

Almond Pork Chops with Honey Mustard Recipe

I love how crunchy almonds and sweet mustard sauce jazz up this tender pork dish. Usually, I double the recipe. One chop is never enough for my gang of grown children and grandkids.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 25 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup smoked almonds
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard

Directions

  • 1. In a food processor, process the almonds until finely chopped. Transfer to a shallow bowl; add bread crumbs. In another bowl, beat the eggs. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add pork chops, one at a time, and shake to coat. Dip in eggs, then coat with almond mixture.
