Crispy Herb-Coated Pork Chops

These pork chops smelled so wonderful as they were cooking. I had to cook them before we left for T-Ball practice & the whole time we were at practice I couldn't stop thinking about sinking my teeth into them when I got home. Well, my taste buds were not disappointed. They were tasty.

1/3 cup butter, cubed
2/3 cup butter and herb-flavored mashed potato flakes
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
4 bone-in center-cut pork loin chops (6 ounces each and 1 inch thick)
2 tablespoons canola oil

In a shallow bowl, melt butter. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the potato flakes, cheese and garlic powder. Dip chops, one at a time, in butter, then place in bag; seal and shake to coat. In a large skillet, cook chops in oil over medium heat for 7-8 minutes on each side or until meat juices run clear.

I served this with steamed broccoli & rice pilaf. The kids ate like there was no tomorrow.
