I bought some pork chops yesterday at the store. I’m not sure how to make them. Any suggestions on a good recipe???

I usually just barbecue them, but you could probably find some good ones on the Cooking Light Website (I get a lot of recipes there).

I Like to rub some olive oil on them and sprinkle granulated garlic on them then BBQ them

Barbecueing them isn't an option because I live in Michigan and have about a foot of snow on my patio. I was thinking just breading with flour, salt, and pepper and baking them but I wasn't sure how long or what temp.

Pork Chops with Country Gravy
From Cooking Light

This recipe makes enough gravy to smother the pork chops, or you can spoon half over the chops and half over the mashed potatoes. Substitute dried basil if you don't have marjoram.

Total time: 40 minutes.

1/4 cup all-purpose flour (about 1 ounce)
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon dried marjoram
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 3/4 inch thick)
1 tablespoon butter
Cooking spray
1 1/2 cups 1% low-fat milk

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup; level with a knife. Place flour, salt, dried marjoram, dried thyme, and dried rubbed sage in a shallow dish. Dredge pork in flour mixture, turning to coat; shake off excess. Reserve remaining flour mixture.

Melt butter in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 2 minutes on each side or until browned. Reduce heat, and cook for 10 minutes or until done, turning pork once. Remove pork from pan; keep warm.

Combine reserved flour mixture and milk in a small bowl, stirring with a whisk until blended. Add milk mixture to pan; place over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat, and simmer 2 minutes or until slightly thickened, stirring constantly. Serve with chops.

Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 1 chop and 1/2 cup gravy)

3 tablespoons dry white wine
4 teaspoons chopped pitted niçoise olives
1 (14.5-ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Heat vegetable oil in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat. Sprinkle pork with salt and pepper. Place flour in a shallow bowl. Dredge pork in flour, turning to coat; shake off excess flour. Add pork to pan; cook 3 1/2 minutes on each side or until browned. Remove pork from pan. Add garlic to pan; sauté 10 seconds. Add wine, olives, and tomatoes; cook 2 minutes. Return pork to pan; cook 1 minute. Sprinkle with parsley.

I just started eating a lot of boneless thin cut, no fat pork loin cuts.
I came up with a recipe and I call them Italian Chops:

1 egg
1-2 t of a nice mustard (I use Sierra Nevada's or Grey Pupon)

1/2 C of plain bread cumbs
1/4 C of fresh parmesan
pinch of:
cayenne pepper

Toss 2 pork chop in the egg wash then in the dry mix. I fry them in a lightly coated pan of EVOO medium-high heat for about 2-3 minutes on each side.

They come out juicy and tender with a little crunch and whole lotta flavor. I eat them along side organic applesauce.
