Dressing and Potato Flake Pork (or Chicken)

This is a great fall-back dinner. It's pretty tasty, and doesn't take much time. I've made it probably 5 or 6 times in the last 10 years. Each time I've made it was when I hadn't been grocery shopping in a while and we were running out of things to make, and I was running out of ideas. Don't be mislead though! It really does taste good! I just never think of making it until I'm searching the fridge for something to put together.

Thousand Island dressing or ranch dressing work best, but creamy ceasar might also be good. (This time I used thousand island)
Potato flakes
Boneless pork chops/steaks or boneless/skinless chicken breasts
Whatever sides you would like (This time I used green beans and stuffing)

To make the pork:
Preheat oven to 425. Have 3 small plates lined up with a dish for the meat to go in after it's been coated. Put a small amount of flour on the first plate, the dressing on the second plate, and potato flakes on the third. You will likely need to keep the dressing and potato flakes out to refill the plates, but the flour could be put away.

Take a piece of the pork and lightly coat it in flour - this will help the dressing stick to it.

Then coat it in the dressing.

Then coat it in the potato flakes.

Continue with the rest of the pieces of pork until you have enough for your family. Take the remaining potato flakes and sprinkle them over the top of the covered pork in the pan.

Your pan should look similar to this before it goes in the oven.

And after about 40 minutes in the oven it should look like this...

The potato flakes will make the outside a little bit crunchy, but the dressing will make the inside nice and moist. Serve them up with whatever sides you'd like! Enjoy! :)
