These Parmesan Dijon Crusted Pork Chops are the perfect quick and easy keto dinner. Juicy, thick cut pork chops, crusted in a savory parmesan mustard breading and then baked to perfection. They can be ready and on the table in less than 30 minutes.
These parmesan dijon crusted pork chops are amazing served alongside my Chive Horseradish Cauliflower Mash recipe.
I cook the pork chops on top of a cooling rack, placed on a baking sheet to help the coating get nice and crisp, and keep from getting mushy. I you have trouble getting it crispy, try adding a little more grated Parmesan cheese to the coating and broiling for an extra minute or two.
Just be careful to watch them closely so they do not burn. This coating would also be great on top of salmon, or even chicken. These are also amazing served with my Keto Buttery Cauliflower Rice Pilaf Recipe

Parmesan Dijon Crusted Pork Chops
- Total Time: 40 minutes
- Yield: 4 1x
- 4 boneless pork loin chops
- ¼ teaspoon sea salt
- ¼ teaspoon black pepper
- ¼ cup Dijon mustard
- 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- ½ teaspoon garlic powder
- ½ teaspoon dried thyme
- ¼ teaspoon onion powder
- ¼ teaspoon dried oregano
- ¼ teaspoon dried basil
- ¼ teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a cooling rack on top of a baking sheet. Cooking the pork chops on top of the baking sheet will allow them to crisp up on both sides and keep them from becoming soggy.
- Season the chops on both sides with salt and pepper.
- In a shallow mixing bowl, combine the Dijon mustard, spicy brown mustard, olive oil, garlic powder, thyme, onion powder, oregano, basil, and Italian seasoning. Dredge each chop in the mustard mixture, liberally coating both sides.
- On a large plate, spread the Parmesan cheese into a thin layer. Coat the mustard covered chops liberally with Parmesan cheese on both sides. Place the pork chops in a single layer across the cooking rack.
- Bake for 20 minutes. Then broil on high, on the top oven rack for 3 to 4 minutes or until chops are nice and crisp and golden brown.

Kyndra never ceases to amaze me. Just when I think I've found a favorite meal I discover something as tasty as the previous favorite.
If you like pork chops, hell... Even if you don't like pork chops you should give these a taste.

I don't know why I haven't commented on this yet...because we eat it at least once a month! It is truly amazing, our entire family likes it (you know that's saying something!) In fact I can't get my husband to make any other pork chop recipe since I first made it a couple years ago. He took over much of the cooking when he retired -yay! - but if I want to try a different recipe, I have to cook it myself. lol
We love this recipe so much! Made it once and it is now a staple dinner in our household rotation. So delicious
Do you think these could be done on a gas grill?
I'd like to know that too. I'll try these in the oven first but I'm always looking for recipes like this that I can use while camping or just cooking on the deck on the grill. I have 2 of Kyndra's books and they are by far my favorites despite having a whole library of Keto/low carb books. I haven't had a dud recipe yet. I really appreciate Kyndra's work so much.

Yes, I don't see any reason why that wouldn't work.

BEST pork chop ever! Seriously, everyone in my family loves them, which is great for me since I can have them on the Keto diet too!
This was my second time making. They were great. This time though I cooked them in my cuisinart air fryer n they came out great on both sides.

I think I used pork chops that were to thick had to cook a long time. They didn't really crisp up .
