Oven Fried Dijon Pork Chops with Maple Apple Sauerkraut

I hope everyone had a fabulous Halloween and weekend! We had a blast trick or treating with the kiddies. I am so grateful the weather held out and it was fairly warm out. Unfortunately I some how have got myself sick with a cold and cough. Better me than the kids. Strangely enough they are the ones who usually get me sick. So today I will make some chicken soup to help kick this cold!

For The Chops:
4 loin cut pork chops, pounded thin
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon fresh thyme, chopped
1/2 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
salt and pepper
olive oil

For The Sauerkraut:
1 tablespoon butter
1 small red onion, sliced thinly
salt and pepper
1 medium apple, cored, peeled, cut into thin wedges
2 tablespoons firmly packed brown sugar

1 (32-ounce) package sauerkraut, undrained
2 tablespoons maple syrup, the good stuff


For The Chops:
Preheat oven to 400 degrees.

Spread dijon on chops. Sprinkle the chops with thyme, salt and pepper. Turn to the other side and repeat. Place breadcrumbs in shallow dish. Coat chops on both sides in crumbs.
Heat skillet on medium high heat. Add about 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Brown chops for a couple of minutes on each side. Place chops on a baking sheet with a wire rack in oven. Cook for 20 minutes.

For The Sauerkraut:
In a medium skillet melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and sprinkle with some salt and pepper. Cook until onion is caramelized about 10 minutes. Next add the apple and brown sugar, stir to combine. Cook a few minutes until the apple starts to break down. Now add the sauerkraut and maple syrup. Mix well and continue to cook over low heat while chops are in the oven. 

Serve all together!
