Breaded Pork Chops is one of the very first recipes I taught myself shortly after Marks accident. It’s something that I make often and I have perfected the recipe at this point. The breading is just so great and the pork chops are nice and juicy.
Here’s how I make my bread crumbs
I do make my own bread crumbs, using a magic bullet. However, I did not take any pictures of that but this is how I do it. I toast a couple of pieces of bread, let them cool, break them up to fit into my bullet and I grind them up for a few seconds. I than store them in an air tight container and use them as needed. I have tried using store bought bread crumbs, but I didn’t like how fake and stale they tasted so I have just always stuck to making my own.
How to prepare the pork chops
Start by oiling the pan just enough to cover the bottom of the pan with olive oil. This keep the pork chops from sticking to the bottom of the pan. But don’t put too much or your pork chops will be floating and you also don’t want that.
Set out however many pork chops you plan on cooking on a cutting board or whatever you choose. Sprinkle bread crumbs all over the one side of the pork chop. Covering as much as you can so its nice and coated.
Now you will want to put these in your prepared baking dish, but with the breading down. Gently grab the pork chops and place them breading down. Try not to spill all the breading all over, want to make sure it stays underneath the pork chops.
Sprinkle some seasonings on your pork chops. I personally use garlic salt and pepper. You can choose to use whatever makes your taste buds happy.
Now you will want to add the breading to the “top” of the pork chops. Again, sprinkle enough to cover as much as you can. This part you can add a little more than when you did the bottom, since you aren’t disturbing it while in the baking dish.
This next step, you very well can skip over. We are onion lovers and not everyone is, but this is just how I have made them since day 1 and we can’t change our recipe now. We like a little onion on the top, adds a little extra flavor to the pork chops.
The very last thing you will want to do, before throwing these into the oven is adding some butter to the top. The butter helps keep them from getting too dry and overcooked. Keeps them juicy as well. Again, something you can skip over if you aren’t a butter fan.
- This is also something I do when I cook chicken breasts in the oven. Nobody likes dry chicken, at least not me.
Place baking dish in the preheated oven for 20-25 minutes until pork chops are fully cooked and breading is golden brown.
