This recipe came about one night when I was scrambling for something to make. I found the last 1/8th of a bag of potato chips and decided to make some variety of oven-baked chops.
This meal is something I can see a busy single person throwing together. For me, I put this for the Page of Coins because of his/her need for something slightly decadent and different while being easy on the budget at the same time. It uses common ingredients (ok so maybe the Tabasco isn’t common but it is in my world) that won’t break the bank which will make the Page of Coins very happy.
You can make this for yourself and a partner if you like or put one chop aside for another dinner. It will keep in the fridge a day or so but not much longer. That may be my own personal tastes though. Ha!
The Page of Coins is the dedicated young person who values hard work and reward. Generally this represents someone’s work ethic and desire to get ahead in the world.
