Spicy Center-Cut Pork Chops Recipe

  • cooking spray
  • 2 (15.25 ounce) cans mixed fruit with pineapple in light syrup
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons Szechuan sauce, or more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 2 cups bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Szechuan seasoning (optional)
  • 4 (1-inch thick) boneless center-cut pork chops
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a large baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. Combine canned fruit and onion in a food processor; blend until almost pureed. Mix in Szechuan sauce and sugar. Pour into a shallow bowl.
  3. Mix bread crumbs and Szechuan seasoning together in a shallow dish.
  4. Dredge pork chops in fruit mixture; coat with bread crumbs. Transfer to the baking dish.
  5. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown, about 35 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read at least 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).
