Breaded Baked Pork ChopsPosted: September 19, 2011
Who doesn’t like pork chops, right? Some might think ho hum or simple, but this recipe is simply delicious! Pork Chops have long been a favorite of mine since I was a child, and my favorite were breaded and baked by my grandmother. I tried making them myself for a long time, but they always stuck to the pan and were never like grandma’s – until now. Bone-in or center cut, you can’t go wrong.
Sprinkle each chop with salt and pepper. Prepare a plate of Parmesan cheese, an egg (beaten) for dipping, and a plate of panko (or regular) breadcrumbs. Pass the chops through the Parmesan cheese, then the egg, and finally the breadcrumbs. Ensure each chop is well coated. Heat about 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a skillet over med-high heat. Place the chops in the hot oil to brown for a few minutes on one side. Then flip chops and transfer the skillet to a 400F oven for another 12-15 minutes.
Remove from oven and transfer to a plate, covered for a few minutes with aluminum foil. They’re juicy and delicious. It will bring a whole new meaning to weekday pork chops – enjoy!
