Corn Flake Crusted Oven Baked Pork Chops Recipe

Corn Flake Crusted Oven Baked Pork Chops Recipe

Corn flake crusted oven baked pork chops were originally something I made in a NuWave oven. But not everyone has a NuWave, so I adapted and tested the recipe in a regular oven with convection. This recipe still works great in a NuWave oven, too!

Corn Flake Crusted Oven Baked Pork Chops Recipe
 
 
Ingredients
  • 2 thick cut, bone in pork chops (about 1 ½ inch thick)
  • 2 cups corn flakes
  • 3 Tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard, such as Maille or Kroger’s Private Selection (Grey Poupon is too salty in my opinion)
  • Sea salt or Kosher salt and ground black pepper to taste
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven on convection (if available) to 350º F.
  2. Line a baking pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil and place a baking rack in the pan.
  3. Pulse the corn flakes in a food processor 15 to 20 times — or — smash them in a gallon size ziplock bag with a rolling pin. They don’t have to be completely pulverized — just broken down a bit so they’re not big flakes. Place the crushed corn flakes on a plate.
  4. Mix together the mayonnaise and mustard in a plate or wide shallow dish.
  5. Sprinkle the pork chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
  6. Coat the pork chops in the mayonnaise mixture.
  7. Press each pork chop into the crushed corn flakes to coat on both sides and the edges.
  8. Place each pork chop on the baking rack.
  9. Bake until internal temperature reaches 145º F using an instant read digital thermometer — about 35 minutes in a convection oven. It may take a bit longer in a non-convection oven.
  10. Let the chops rest on the rack out of the oven about five minutes before serving.
Notes
Delicous served with mashed potatoes (or mashed potato pancakes), early harvest green peas and a mixed salad.
Pork meat near the bone will still be slightly pink when cooked to a safe temperature of 145º F but it will be delicious and juicy. If you like your pork cooked completely white, cook it until it measures 160º F — at higher temperatures the pork will dry out and become tough. Refer to foodsafety.gov for more information on cooking meats to safe temperatures. This recipe works great in a NuWave oven!
