The golden crusted pork chops are accompanied with a rich mushroom sauce. This scrumptious entree is loved by my family and makes a terrific company dish. This is wonderful served with mashed potatoes. —Nadine Mesch, Mount Healthy, Ohio


  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1/4 cup white wine or reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons bourbon
  • 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 boneless pork loin chops (6 ounces each)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs

  1. In a large skillet, saute mushrooms and onion in 1 tablespoon oil and butter until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Remove from the heat. Add wine and bourbon; cook over medium heat until liquid is evaporated. Add chicken broth and cream; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until sauce is thickened, stirring occasionally; keep warm.
