  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup 2% milk
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1 cup finely chopped pecans
  • 4 smoked bone-in pork chops (7-1/2 ounces each )
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons seedless raspberry jam
  • 1 tablespoon thawed frozen orange juice concentrate


  1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a shallow bowl, whisk together eggs and milk. In another shallow bowl, toss bread crumbs with pecans.
  2. Coat pork chops with flour; shake off excess. Dip in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture, patting to help adhere. Place on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray.
  3. Bake until golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Meanwhile, place remaining ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook and stir until slightly thickened, 6-8 minutes. Serve with chops.

Test Kitchen tips
  • If you can't find smoked pork chops or want a lower-sodium alternative, this recipe will work with fresh chops, too. Season the meat =with salt and pepper before coating, and cook the chops to at least 145°.
  • This recipe will work with a variety of nuts, so feel free to try other ones. Hazelnuts and almonds would both be tasty.
