Today, I’m gonna tell you about these excellent pork chops AND give you the secret to my cooking success.  The recipe for these super tasty pork chops came from eMeals. If you’ve never heard of it, you are missing out! It’s a meal planning website that will choose a whole week’s worth of meals AND make a grocery list for you! It saves TONS of time and money. They even select ingredients based on weekly grocery store sales to get you the most bang for your buck. You can choose different meal plans to fit your lifestyle (classic, low calorie, paleo, and more).

I started using eMeals when I was a newlywed, and it is basically how I learned to cook. The recipes are simple enough for a “normal cook” but they still provide lots of variety (so you don’t have to eat the same 3 dishes over and over). I’ve been using them for nearly 4 years, and I love it.

These pork chops are an example of the tasty meals you’ll cook! This recipe came from the Portion Control meal plan, which includes Weight Watchers points! These chops are so easy to make and got high marks from the whole family. It only took about 10 minutes of prep and then 20 mins to bake so this is a great weeknight meal!

  2. Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, olive oil, and pepper in a shallow bowl. Coat chops with mustard and press into breadcrumb mixture.

  1. I love your recipes, but I have diabetes and have to count carbs. Is there any way that you could include the carb count alond with the Weight Watchers Points?

      Thank you Cecile! At least these don’t take long to make so you can have some in front of you pretty quick if you wanted 🙂

  2. these were wonderful Lindsey…I substituted panko bread crumbs for the Italian breadcrumbs and they were delicious…had macaroni and cheese and a chopped salad to go with them…perfect meal…thanks for all your great recipes…

  3. Made this Saturday for dinner. I served it with a sweet potato and onion wanna be hash (couldn’t get the potatoes to crisp whoops). Husband LOVED it! Has already requested they make it into the regular meal rotation. He said even the left over chop reheated well and stayed moist. Great post! Thanks for sharing it!

      You’re welcome! I’m glad you and your husband enjoyed it! I love how easy and delicious these are. Thanks for commenting!

  4. I made these tonight for my husband and he LOVED them. I am on a restrictive diet right now so none for me, but he kept telling me to keep this recipe because they were awesome. Very flavorful and juicy.
