Cook's Notes

There's no need to fry in a lot of oil to get a crisp breadcrumb crust. Before baking, moisten the crumbs with a little oil; coat the pork, chicken, or fish, and bake until golden.

    Very simple, flavorful and juicy. We like to first apply a mustard to the pork chop. Any type will do, dijon or honey mustard work well.

    This is a pretty quick and simple yet satisfying recipe. I didn't have apricot jam so I substituted orange marmalade and it was great. I paired it with sauteed green beans and onions, which were complementary: http://www.marthastewart.com/909983/sauted-green-beans-and-red-onions

    This is a really elegant but super simple recipe. I don't keep bread in the house, so I used some panko instead and they turned out great! I also put some salt-free seasoning in the breading mixture for something extra.

    This was really flavourful and easy. Nice crunchy breading and the apricot jam not only gave it a sweetness but a bit of spiciness too. I added some salt and pepper to the breading, thinking it needed something, but I probably could have done without after all.

    Very easy and delicious. I used boneless loin chops and added a bit of dry mustard to the apricot jam and added salt and pepper to the breadcrumbs. Next time I think I will toast the breadcrumbs just slightly prior to applying them to the pork chops. They were crispy but could be a little crunchier.

    Tried this tonight with leftover apricot filling from a recent danish-making adventure. Turned out great! Easy weeknight meal. Next time I think I might try it with cherries.

    I thought this was good, but I wish I had used better quality pork chops. My breading could have been a bit crisper, but overall, it had good flavor and the apricot jelly's sweetness combined nicely with the saltiness of the pork.
