    Ingredients and Preparation

    Ingredients Measures
    Breadcrumbs ¼ cup
    Dijon mustard 2 teaspoons
    Bone-in, center-cut pork chops 2 (8-ounce)
    Salt ¼ teaspoon
    Freshly ground pepper to taste
    Olive oil 2 teaspoons
    1. Preheat oven to 400ºF.
    2. Use a fork to mix the breadcrumbs and mustard together in a small bowl. (The mixture should be crumbly.)
    3. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper
    4. Heat the oil in an ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops for about 3 minutes on each side, until browned.
    5. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook the pork chops until a meat thermometer registers 160ºF. This should be about 20-25 minutes. Cooking time depends on the thickness of the chops.
