Honey Pecan Glazed Pork Chops

"There is just something about pork and a sweet sauce. This easy and fast dish fits well into a busy weeknight but is dressy enough for company. Topped with a sweet honey pecan glaze that will tempt even the pickiest eaters. The cayenne really makes this come to life, however if you have little ones please feel free to reduce or eliminate it. The small amount here is just enough to tingle your taste buds not set your mouth on fire."

Ready In:




  • If desired or necessary, pound chops to ensure even thickness, about 1/4 inch thick.
  • In a shallow bowl beat egg and milk together.
  • Place flour in in a zip top bag or on a large sheet of wax paper. Makes cleanup easy.
  • Mix seasonings together and season each side of the meat to taste. Mix any remaining spice mix into the flour.
  • Dip each chop into flour mix, shake off any excess flour. Then dip into the egg wash, letting the excess drip back into the bowl. Now dip it again in the flour and again shake off any excess.
  • Melt butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops and fry until brown on both sides but not overcooked. About 4 minutes per side.
  • Heat a small sauce pan over med-low heat a few minutes before meat is done. When warmed add all sauce ingredients and heat just until warm and melted. Stir constantly. Do not overcook or the sauce will get hard.
  • Place chops on a platter, pour sauce over chops and serve immediately.

    These are really great. I used rice flour to get a crispy crust. The spice mixture was a great combination.

    We really enjoyed these! The balance of sweet and spicy was perfect, and I was amazed how quickly this all came together. Will make again, especially on busy nights! Thanks for posting.

    My hubby made this, and I was SO PROUD of him! I was sick and couldn't eat, but he said they were VERY, very good! So good he ate 2 of them!! :) He didn't pound them, they were thick-cut, but just cooked them slower for a longer time til done. I advised him to let them rest when done, and then just warm the sauce, and that worked out perfectly! He even made your Skinny Mashed Potatoes to go with, and then just heated up some leftover corn also. It made a wonderful dinner for him!!! I felt bad that I couldn't make it for him, but next time, (and there WILL be a next time!), I'll make them and get to try them, too! Thanks so much for the recipes mama, it really helped us out!! :)

    I made this fully expecting that I wouldn't like it much as I am not a fan of anything sweet for dinner but I really like this - more than my boyfriend who typically loves dishes like this. The cayenne pepper gives it a nice kick and it really is a quick and easy meal to make on a weeknight. The pork loins that I used came out really tender. Thanks for posting a recipe that I am sure I will make again.

    Everyone loved this dish and I loved the fact that it was super easy to make! I messed up and added all the seasonings to the flour mixture! The seasoning was still noticeable on the chops however. I did not chop the pecans and in hindsight I wish I had (read as: I wish I had followed your instructions!) as this sauce was so good!!! I plan to make this again, the right way, because everyone LOVED it! Thanks Chef and Good Luck!!!!
