Simple Dijon Pork Chops

This is one of those quick and easy fall back recipes for the autumn or wintertime when you don’t mind heating up your kitchen. No major ingredients necessary, just your favorite mustard, whole wheat bread crumbs (FODMAPers sub in brown rice bread crumbs), butter and center cut pork chops trimmed of fat.

I serve this up with my sweet potato fries and/or roasted veggies! You can cook up the chops and veggies in the same oven as they cook at the same temp and for about the same amount of time too.

Start with 3/4 inch center cut pork chops or you could easily substitute boneless chicken breasts if you prefer.

Lather with some Dijon mustard or your favorite mustard.  This time, I used Trader Joe’s Aioli Garlic Mustard Sauce. (FODMAPers simply add a plain Dijon mustard such as Maille brand).  

I like to season up the bread crumbs with a bit of salted butter but you can also sub in olive oil if you prefer.  I just melted the butter and mix with crumbs and put them right on top of the pork chops.

The mustard and crumb mixture keeps the pork moist and flavorful.

Here they are…all cooked up.

  1. Love this simple recipe and great inspiration to try pork chops a little differently ( I usually grill them on the Foreman with salt and pepper.). I want to try the TJ garlic mustard aioli too. Love trying new things fro TJs!
