Coconut Crusted Mango Sriracha Pork Chops

I found a completely delicious sounding recipe on Brittany Angell's website. The only problem? I don't like I made it into a pork chop and added my own flair.
Her site is FANTASTIC and I suggest perusing it when you have a moment!!

EDIT 4/12/2016--
I wanted to make this but was short a few ingredients, including mango.....I subbed 1/3 cup kirkland strawberry spread, 3/4 cup greek yogurt and the sriracha as the sauce and it was SO delicious!!! Maybe even better than the original!! I think it would be delicious just subbing fresh strawberries for the mango, I just didnt have them on hand.

This would be wonderful with chicken as well!

1 cup diced fresh mango (peel a Mango QUICK link!!)
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup greek yogurt
2 TB mayo
1 TB honey
2 tsp-2 TB Sriracha Sauce(more or less to taste)

In a blender blend it all until smooth. Set aside for flavors to mingle.

2 lbs boneless pork chops

3/4 cup almond meal
1/2 cup potato starch
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
1/2 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp smoked paprika
salt and pepper to taste

Generously oil a rimmed baking sheet with olive oil and preheat oven to 400.

Combine all breading ingredients and mix well.

Measure 1/2 cup of the mango sriracha mixture into a separate bowl and put the rest aside in the fridge for dipping.

To the 1/2 cup add 1 beaten egg and mix well.

On a plate measure 1/2 cup flour OR you can use corn, potato or tapioca starch.

Make an assembly line with the pork, then the plate of flour or starch, then the mango sauce, then the breading, ending with the greased baking sheet.

Coat chop in flour/starch, tapping to remove excess

Next dip  into the mango mixture.

Last dredge heavily through the breading mixture, coating well.

Place on greased sheet and repeat with remaining chops.

Bake for 20-25 minutes flipping once half way through, cook until they are 165 chops are about 1 inch thick, please take your thickness into account with baking times!! Dry pork SUCKS.

 Serve with extra Mango Sririacha and Enjoy!
