Ingredients: 6 lean center-cut pork chops, 1/2-inch thick* 1 egg white 1 cup evaporated skim milk 3/4 cup cornflake crumbs 1/4 cup fine dry bread crumbs 4 teaspoons paprika 2 teaspoons oregano 3/4 teaspoon chili powder 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder 1/2 teaspoon black pepper 1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper 1/8 teaspoon dry mustard 1/2 teaspoon salt as needed nonstick cooking spray
Directions: 1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 2. Trim fat from pork chops. 3. Beat egg white with evaporated skim milk. Place chops in milk mixture and let stand for 5 minutes, turning once. 4. Meanwhile, mix cornflake crumbs, bread crumbs, spices, and salt. 5. Use nonstick cooking spray on 13- by 9-inch baking pan. 6. Remove chops from milk mixture and coat thoroughly with crumb mixture. 7. Place chops in pan and bake at 375 degrees F for 20 minutes.

Well, my recipe is fried, but it's probably the same as baked if you have a modern non-stick pan... otherwise, use a trimming the provide the fat.
Slice one onion into thin half-rings and stir-fry them. Dredge pork chops in flour, push aside half-cooked onions, and brown on both sides. Bring onions back to add a barrier between chops and pan and add liquid, (preferably apple juice) and steam covered until cooked.
If you insist on baking, I reccomend a bed of onions and sliced apples, more onions and sliced apples on top, bake with foil covering the glass cake pan.)
Trim away excess fat from pork chops. Spread 1 Tbsp. mustard on sides of each chop. Combine remaining ingredients in shallow bowl. Coat pork chops and place on a rack over a pan . Bake at 375 degrees for 45 minutes or until pork chops are tender.
