I made these last night using Panko instead of flour. The glaze is absolutely delicious and would be awesome on ribs or chicken too!! We both thought it would be better if the glaze was not be poured over, but instead basted on every 5 minutes if you want the coating to stay crunchier. It probably wouldn't hurt to cook the glaze to thicken it before basting--except on ribs where it would cook down over time. Even if you’re not into pork, I’d suggest you try Courtney’s glaze recipe—it was so good I could have eaten it by itself! YUM!!!!
CRUNCHY HONEY GARLIC PORK CHOPS
6-9 pork chops or chicken breasts (not too thick on chicken breasts)
4 Tbs water
2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. black pepper
coconut oil for frying
1 1/2 cups honey
dash of cayenne pepper (to your taste)
1 tsp. fresh ginger-grated
1/2 cup Tamari or soy sauce
1 Tbs chopped garlic
2 Tbs coconut oil or butter
In a shallow dish Whisk the eggs and 4 Tbs. water together.
Mix the flour, salt, pepper and the garlic powder in a plate or shallow pan.
Dip the chops or chicken in the flour, then into the egg and then back over to the flour mixture again.(This is what puts the extra crispy coating on them), then place in a pan with about a half inch of the oil. You need to get it good and hot first and then turn to about medium, so they will not cook too fast.
Cook for about 5-6 minutes on each side without turning more than twice so you will not lose your breading .
Remove from the pan and put into a baking dish.
In the coconut oil over medium heat sauté the garlic then add the honey, soy sauce, cayenne, and ginger. Cook until bubbly then reduce to low and simmer for about 5 minutes. Watch this carefully because it might boil over.
Pour 1/2 of the glaze over the pork chops. Turn them over and pour the other 1/2 over the other side. In a preheated 350 degree oven cook uncovered for about 20-25 minutes. This sets the glaze and finishes them to be sure they are cooked through. When ready, place on serving dish with parsley garnish and Enjoy!
