Lemon Pepper Pork Chops Baked and Served With Apples

Recipe by  

"A pork chop flavored with lemon pepper and coated with a crunchy breading, then baked. Topped with cinnamon/allspiced apple slices. How can pork and apples not be wonderful together?!? This is so pretty plated with the apple slices making a path across the pork chop."

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Place a baking rack into a large, shallow baking sheet with sides.
  2. Sprinkle each pork chop with onion powder, garlic powder, and lemon pepper seasoning. Place the cornflake crumbs into a shallow dish, and thoroughly dredge each pork chop in the crumbs, pressing the chops into the crumbs with a fork. Gently brush away any loose crumbs, and place the pork chops onto the baking rack.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until the chops are no longer pink inside and the juices run clear, 30 to 45 minutes. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of a chop should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
  4. While chops are baking, place the apple wedges into a large saucepan over medium heat, and pour in enough apple juice to reach depth of 2 inches above the apples. Mix in the cinnamon, allspice, vanilla extract, and brown sugar. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to a simmer, and cook until apples are soft when pierced with a fork, about 30 minutes.
  5. To serve, place a pork chop in the center of a plate, and arrange apple slices decoratively up one side, over the top, and down the other side of the chop. Drizzle each chop with the apple liquid; serve remaining sauce separately.

  • Cook's Notes
  • If the pork chops are baked raised up off the baking pan, there is no need to turn them over. I have fixed this same recipe, but used chicken breasts. And that's pretty yummy, too.

Im not a huge pork chop fan but I decided to try this recipe out for something different. I used 4 large thick pork chops and cooked them for the full 45 minutes. The apple topping was awesome tasting, pretty thin which I tried thickening up with corn starch which didn't do too much since I used too much apple juice. Next time I will use an extra large sauce pan so not as much liquid is needed to cover the apples. Thanks for sharing!

Not a fan of this at all. It was so overpowered by the apples that you couldn't taste the pork.

This was very yummy. I think next time I will thicken the juice with some cornstarch, and serve on the side. It kinda takes away the crispy of the chops. Otherwise, easy to prepare last minute with pantry ingredients.

I made this for my family, including my grandsons. Everyone loved it. The apples really made it special. I did use some of the sauce from the apples to drizzle over the meat. It was great, gave it sweet and savory flavor. I will be making this again, I'm sure.

This sounds delicious altho if I prepare it I'll probably leave off the apple component.

I used chicken, minus the apples part. Family LOVED the lemon pepper chicken by itself! So easy

Our family found this recipe to be really great. The pork chops were so tender and juicy! I saved the left-over apples and sauce and used it on pancakes the next morning! What a great topping it makes!
