  1. Place flour, paprika, sage, Creole seasoning, cayenne pepper, black pepper, and garlic powder in a large, resealable plastic bag. Place pork chops in the bag, seal, and shake to coat chops.

I don't understand the negative reviews either. I too have made this dish over and over again and everyone who eats it absolutely loves it! The flavor has just the right amount of "kick". Many of my friends who have tried it have asked for the recipe. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe!

I have to agree with previous comments. The seasoning is not very flavorful and doesn't really compliment the pork. I would leave out the sage and creole seasoning and add in some red pepper flakes, onion powder and thyme.

These are a very good (and fast) weeknight meal! I don't like pork chops fried with flour, so I eliminated the flour, and substituted cumin for the sage, which i think goes better with the other seasonings. Also, I never fry boneless chops (too dry) so used bone-in instead. Browned them up in a hot cast-iron skillet, and they were delicious!

These cajun pork chops were out of this world, my family was looking for more after dinner. I added a little more cayenne pepper because we like spicy food. It was delish....

This is probably my favorite way that I've ever had prok chops. I added double of everything except flour and paprika because we like things extra spicy. I double dipped them in the flour mixture (flour, milk, flour) and allowed them to rest for about 30 minutes before cooking them. I cooked them in an iron skillet with only 1 TB of olive oil, but I did spray the pan liberally with Pam first so it would not soak up all of the oil. They cooked for about 6 minutes on each side for a 1/2 inch thick chop. Wonderful!

Simple, quick, tasty and gone!!! Not a morsel left over tonight. Didn't change a time...I'll make extras!

These were very good, the only reason I gave it 4 stars is because we were expecting it to be a little spicier. Had a nice mild flavor, recipe followed to the letter. Easy enough to make, I also made 5 good sized chops and still had enough season to cover at least 2 more. I will make again. Thanks.

Wonderful. It had a bite, but not too much. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone who like mild buffalo wings (like me)!
