Ingredients Needed

  • Pork Chops– I like thick-cut bone-in or thick-cut boneless pork chops. The thinner the pork chops are, the harder it is to keep them from drying out.
  • Garlic Powder and Paprika– to season the pork. Use smoked paprika if you want a smoky flavor.
  • Olive Oil
  • Honey
  • Dijon Mustard– yellow mustard or whole grain can be substituted.
  • Cayenne Pepper– to add a little spicy flavor.
  • Heavy Cream– adds just a little creamy texture to the sauce.

How To Serve Honey Mustard Pork Chops

These pork chops go great with Southern-Style Green Beans, Spicy-Sweet Roasted Sweet Potatoes, Extra Crispy Roasted Potatoes or white rice.

Cooking Time May Vary

Depending on the thickness of your pork chops and whether your pork chops are bone-in or boneless, the cooking time will vary. Use the cooking time as an estimate. Pork is done when it reaches an interanl temperature of 145 degrees. Boneless take less time to cook than bone-in pork chops.

I personally think bone-in pork chops have more flavor and they are less likely to dry out, but they are a little more difficult to eat.

Recipe Tip

You can alter the ratio of honey to mustard. If you want the sauce less sweet, add a little less honey and a little more mustard.

Is This Dish Spicy?

With just 1/4 teaspoon of cayenne pepper, there is a little spiceiness. Double the amount for more heat.


Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 4 days and reheated in a microwave.
