Yes, I’m bringing you yet another crusted recipe. You know we love those! πŸ™‚

This one, though was all hubs’ idea.

I came home one night to this:

Ya, he’s a keeper! πŸ˜‰

Anyhow, I was a little bit skeptical of his idea to crust pork with apple chips…

I have to say, though, it TOTALLY worked! It’s like that whole pork and applesauce thing!

This dinner was simple, delicious, and a down-right home run by the hubs…

Wham. Bam. Thank you, ma’am!

Apple Chip Crusted Pork Schnitzel

Yield: 2 servings

Prep Time: 15-20 minutes

Cook Time: 18-25 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes


2 1/2 pound bone-in pork chops
2.5 ounce bag of dried apple chips, crushed
1/3 cup flour
1 teaspoon salt
fresh cracked black pepper
1 egg, beaten


Preheat oven to 400ΒΊ F. Set an oven-safe cooling rack over a baking sheet and spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Carefully cut the bone and silver skin away from the pork chop and discard. Place saran wrap on top of each pork and pound them down to 1/4-1/8" thickness. Set aside until ready to use.

Place crushed apples into a shallow pie plate. In another pie plate, mix the flour, salt, and black pepper. In a third dish, beat one egg.

Dredge the pounded out pork (one at a time) in the flour, then dunk in the egg wash, and last into the crushed apple chips, being sure that you coat the pork well. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake in the oven for 18-25 minutes, until the pork is cooked completely and is no longer translucent when cut into (and the juices run clear).
