Thyme-Marinated Pork Chops

A garlic and thyme marinade and a crisp bread-crumb coating enhance these juicy chops. "They're great for an everyday dinner or even when you want to have a special meal for two," says Allyson Harms of Edmond, Oklahoma.

    I copied this recipe into my recipe file years ago. Just tried it for the first time last night. We really liked it & I will definitely make this again.

    One of my favorite ways to make chops. I also use boneless or thin cut and just reduce the cooking times. Always a winner.
