Creamy Mushroom Pork Chops

Ingredients and Variations
PORK CHOPS: “The other white meat” is an economical and healthy alternative to chicken, (although chicken could be successfully used in this dish). Choose bone-in or boneless chops that are the same size and thickness, so they cook evenly. Look for chops with an edge of fat that will melt into the sauce. Frozen chops can be used, just add extra bake time.
BREADING: Chops are covered in a thin coating of Panko and parmesan cheese that adds thickness to the sauce and more flavor to the dish. A little (optional) Italian dressing mix added to the breading will give this recipe a new twist of flavor!
MUSHROOMS: Any type of mushrooms will work, white, cremini, or shiitake are the most popular, or mix and match for visual contrast. Thinly sliced portobellos will give this dish a new look.
EXTRAS: For heartier appetites or if cooking for a bigger crowd, toss in veggies like a bag of vegetable medley, chopped asparagus, sliced brussels sprouts, diced zucchini, or potatoes.
PRO TIP: This is also a great way to use up leftover bits of veggies! An extra sprinkle of parmesan or bacon bits over the top would be a great garnish!
How to Bake Mushroom Pork Chops
- Dredge chops in flour, then dip in egg and press into seasoned breadcrumbs.
- Brown chops on both sides, adding oil as needed.

- Cover with foil and bake until chops are fork tender.
What Goes with Mushroom Pork Chops?
Mushroom pork chops can be served over rice, mashed potatoes, or pasta which makes it a new dish every time! Try it over lemon rice, orzo with zucchini, or pasta. Serve with roasted cabbage or a simple wedge salad, and some thick slices of homemade no knead bread to soak up all that delicious sauce.
