Baked Pork Chops

Yum! We really enjoy pork chops in our house. Our all time favorite pork chop recipe is this steak house pork chop recipe on the grill. This recipe is right up there though. It's seasoned just right and has a nice crispy coating. The best part is that they're done in 30 minutes start to finish, can't beat that! I saw this recipe over at Skinny Taste. We ate them with a simple green salad and it was a great dinner. I hope you enjoy!

6 center cut boneless pork chops, trimmed (about 1/2" - 3/4" thick)
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
1/3 cup Cornflake crumbs
2 Tbsp. grated parmesan cheese
1 egg
kosher salt
1 1/4 tsp. paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/4 tsp. chili powder
1/8 tsp. black pepper (we love Lawry's seasoned pepper)

Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Get a baking sheet and line it with tin foil then lay a cookie rack over the top of it and spray it with non-stick spray. Mix together panko, cornflake crumbs, parmesan cheese, 3/4 tsp. kosher salt, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, and black pepper in a shallow dish. Beat the egg and pour it into a second shallow dish. Season pork chops lightly on both sides with a bit of kosher salt. One by one, dip the pork chops into the beaten egg and then into the crumb mixture, making sure to coat both sides. Place dipped pork chops onto cookie sheet. Bake for 20 minutes. Serve hot!

Grilled Chicken Parmesan

We really enjoyed this dinner. I served the chicken with Mini Garlic Monkey Breads and some broccoli and it was just a perfect dinner. I love when Nate grills and this is definitely going to be a repeat grilling recipe for us. Enjoy!

2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup marinara sauce
1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
2/3 cup Italian dressing (I used fat free Kraft)

Marinate the chicken in the Italian dressing for one hour. Grill chicken. After the chicken has been flipped and is about 4-5 minutes away from being done, spoon marinara sauce evenly over both pieces of chicken, then top with shredded cheese. Close the lid on the grill and finish cooking chicken. The chicken is done when the juices run clear and the center reaches 165 degrees F. Your sauce should be nice and hot and your cheese all melty and gooey. Enjoy hot!
