We really liked these. I was out of cornflakes, so I use Rice Krispies instead. They turned out a bit soggy on bottom, but still tasty. Will try again and use the corn flakes next time. My son is a picky eater and the one who has to be on a low phosphorus diet. He picked off the breading....but ate the pork chop...which is a big deal as he rarely eats any meat other than chicken. But it was so moist he loved the meat.

Versatile recipe! We use the coating for pork, chicken, and fish. It keeps the meat moist and tender. We didn't use the peach half since neither of us cares for fruit and meat together. Leftovers heat up well.

Really liked this recipe. I may have overcooked the chops a bit. Very easy to make. I scrambled leftover egg wash for the dog.
