Cornflake-Coated Pork Chops


  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 5 cups cornflake cereal, crushed (about 2 cups crushed)
  • 6 boneless pork chops (about 3/4-inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons lemon pepper
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 large lemon, halved
  • Garnish: halved lemon slices


1. Stir together eggs and milk in a shallow dish. Place cornflake crumbs in a separate shallow dish. Sprinkle pork evenly with lemon pepper, salt, and garlic powder. Dip pork chops in egg mixture, and dredge in cornflake crumbs. Place chops on a lightly greased rack on a baking sheet.

2. Bake at 350° for 30 to 35 minutes or until done. Squeeze lemon juice evenly over chops, and garnish, if desired.

Chicken Stroganoff

A simple variation of beef stroganoff:) I wanted it, but the beef was still frozen, and I had chicken defrosted.

Chicken strips/tenderloins/breasts cut up-whatever size you prefer
Olive Oil
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
A can of water
1 package of dry onion soup mix
16 oz sour cream
Wide egg noodles

Cook chicken in oil in skillet, after chicken is cooked through, mix in mushroom soup, onion soup, and a little water-maybe a can or so. Stir until all combined and bring to a boil. Let simmer until tender (cover and turn temp down). When close to serving time, cook noodles according to package, and when done, drain and add some butter to them. Right before serving add the sour cream to the beef mixture, and stir in. Once its all warm, serve over the noodles.
