Pecan crusted pork chops

Up by request of not only my hubby- but others as well, pecan crusted pork chops. They are a spin off of my mom's pecan chicken fingers. Quick and easy, but oh so flavorful. If you need a sauce, I recommend a sweet and tangy BBQ sauce.

Here's to you and your culinary adventures, friend. Cheers!

Pecan Crusted Pork
Serves 3

1/3 cup crushed corn flakes or rice crispy cereal
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1 tsp dry Italian seasoning
1/4 tsp onion powder
12 oz boneless, center cut pork chops
1-2 TBS coarse ground mustard
1/8 tsp pepper

Preheat oven to 400.

Combine all ingredients except mustard and pork.

Pound pork into thin pieces about 1/2-1/4 inch thick using a meat mallet. (This is a great stress reliever...)

Brush pork with mustard then dredge in pecan/cereal mixture. Gently pat coating into meat to make sure it wont fall off. Place on a prepared baking sheet.

Bake 10-15 minutes until cooked thru.
