  • Skillet
  • Large pot
  • Colander


  • 4 thick bone-in pork chops
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup panko
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • Dash of cayenne powder
  • 3 tablespoons fresh dill finely chopped, divided
  • 1 pound baby golden potatoes
  • 2 small dill pickles
  • 3 tablespoons pickle brine
  • 2 tablespoons whole grain mustard
  • 1 tablespoon dijon mustard
  • 1 cup fresh watercress or baby arugula
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Cook the Potatoes:

  • Add the potatoes to a large pot of cold water and bring to a boil. Cook for 10-15 minutes or until fork tender. Drain and set aside.

Prepare the Mustard Sauce:

  • While the potatoes cook, start the sauce. In a medium bowl, add the chopped pickles, pickle brine, 1 tablespoon of chopped dill, the whole grain and dijon mustard and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Set aside.

Start the Pork Chops:

  • Set out three shallow dishes on your workspace. In one one dish, add the flour and season with salt and pepper. In the middle dish, add the eggs and whisk until smooth. In the third dish, add the panko, remaining 2 tablespoons of dill, salt, pepper, and a dash of cayenne powder and mix to combine.
  • Coat the pork chops in the flour and shake off the excess, dip into the egg and cover completely before placing into the panko and using your fingers to press the mixture into the pork chop. Ensure the pork chop is covered evenly with the panko mixture.

Fry the Pork Chops:

  • In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat until hot. Add the pork chops, cooking in batches if necessary and fry until the panko is just golden brown, about 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to an oven safe dish and place in the oven and cook for an additional 8-12 minutes or until the pork reaches an internal temperature of 135-140ºF. Remove from the oven and rest for 5-10 minutes. Note: The FDA recommends 145ºF for pork, so removing it from the oven at 135ºF and resting it will allow it to come up to 145ºF without worrying about overcooking it.

Finish the Potato Salad:

  • While the pork is resting, cut the potatoes in half and add to the bowl with the mustard sauce and toss gently to combine. Add the watercress and toss gently.

To Serve:

  • Divide the potato salad between plates and top with a pork chop. Enjoy!
