Almond Pork Chops with Honey Mustard

I love how crunchy almonds and sweet mustard sauce jazz up this tender pork dish. Usually I double the recipe. One chop is never enough for my gang of grown children and grandkids. —Lily Julow, Lawrenceville, Georgia
  • Total Time
    Prep/Total Time: 30 min.
  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1/2 cup smoked almonds
  • 1/2 cup dry bread crumbs
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (1 inch thick and 6 ounces each)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 cup reduced-fat mayonnaise
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard


  • In a food processor, process the almonds until finely chopped. Transfer to a shallow bowl; add bread crumbs. In another bowl, beat the eggs. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add 1 pork chop at a time and toss to coat. Dip pork chop in eggs, then coat with almond mixture.
  • Preheat oven to 400°. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook chops in oil and butter until lightly browned, 2-3 minutes on each side. Transfer to a rimmed baking sheet; bake, uncovered, until a thermometer inserted in pork reads 145°, 10-15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, honey and mustard. Serve with pork chops.

    I hate Dijon mustard, but everyone seems to love it.

    These chops were great. I made a half-recipe for the two of us, adding the panko to the almonds as mltdebbie suggested. I wasn’t sure about the timing of baking the chops because I brined them first, so I cooked them on the stove. I fried them until they were nicely browned, then flipped them, turned down the heat, and cooked them covered for about 5 minutes. The sauce was the perfect accompaniment to both the chops and their side dish, green beans with toasted sliced almonds. DH raved about the meal.

    Could this be baked instead of fried in oil and butter? Can't wait to try. Sounds delicious!

    I didn't have dry bread crumbs so I put panko in the food processor with the almonds. Other than that I followed the recipe. GREAT! My hubby had only taken one bite when he exclaimed "Wow! We're having these again!"
