Oven “Fried” Breaded Pork Chops

These pork chops are amazing and better than Shake-n-Bake. Even my husband (who’s not a big pork chop fan) LOVES them. I served it with a raw shredded brussels sprout salad. I also have an Air Fryer Breaded Pork Chop version here.

When I was a kid, my Mom’s friend Debbie often had my brother and I over for dinner because, well she lived right upstairs from us. We loved this, and she was so good to us. She would make broccoli, Rice-a-Roni and Shake-n-Bake pork chops. Growing up in a home where my mom made everything from scratch, this was totally new to us and we loved it.

As an adult, I know how processed (yes still yummy) those things are so I make them myself. One day I’ll share my healthier Rice-A-Roni recipe, it’s easy!

  1. Great recipe! The pork was so tender and flavorful. Other than grilled, this will be my go to pork chop recipe. Thanks so much for another keeper!

  2. I made this for dinner with green beans and baked potatoes. Delicious meal! I didn’t have cornflakes so I used cornmeal. Perfect, tasty and moist pork chops.

  3. We had this tonight with steamed broccoli, cauliflower, carrots, and mashed potatoes. This was a great family meal. I cut the chops into 1″ cubes. Not one left behind. I was looking for a knock off of Oven Fry. Thank you!

    This was delicious! My hubby- who is not a fan of pork really enjoyed this. So tender and great flavor! Will be making again.

  5. I am about to try this recipe. I hope it goes okay. Any suggestions when it comes to not having a meat thermometer. Also so you flip them half way??? Thank you. 😃

    1. You should use a temperature probe to confirm temps. Every oven/cut of meat is different and times are aways a best guess.

    Don’t substitute for the Panko!!

    I followed it to a tee. Best ever and so easy. Now, for a margarita and a chop! Perfect combination.

  8. Came out like all the other oven baked pork chop recipes.  Soft and uninspired. Getting a crunchy baked pork chop is impossible. If I’m wrong – please show me how. Fried = crispy.

    Made these chops for the hubs and I for lunch.  Wish I had found this recipe 40 years ago, they are so delicious!!  Didn’t have panko and cornflake crumbs so I improvised using dry bread crumbs and cracker crumbs.  The flavor and juiciness of the chops can’t be beaten.  Will be making them again! Soon!!!

    1. My mom did this for years with cracker crumbs only when I was growing up. The only thing is though she would pan fry them first before she put them in the oven. We learned years later just to spray them with oil and put them in the oven like I do chicken. 😊

    Incredibly delicious. Used thicker bone in chops from butcher.  Did not salt individual chops. Cooked an extra 4 minutes based on size. Whole family raved about them.

    1. This one is pretty close. 6 personal points.

  11. The first 5 times I made this, it was perfect and crunchy and delicious. Lately, it’s completely mushy. I can’t figure out why! Please help me figure it out because it was one of my favorite weeknight meals. Could it be the egg making it mushy? I try not to put too much egg. Or am I mashing up the crumps too much and it’s mixing with the egg too much instead of just sticking to the pork? Help! Thank you!

    1. Make sure when egg washing your pork, you let excess egg drip off the pork chop. Also continue to shake your crumbs to make a new layer of loose bread crumbs. This will mitigate excess egg sticking to your bread crumbs, thus no mush should be present. Hope this helps for your next meal!

  12. So Delicious. I didn’t have Panko so used whole wheat breadcrumbs instead and instead of dipping in egg I spread Dijon mustard all over. I baked on a rack over pan so top & bottom would be crunchy. Came out soft & delicious. Husband loved it even with the chili powder on it.

  13. Gina,
    Would you do anything different if you used a pork tenderloin?  I was thinking of cutlets andi know I have to watch the cooking time but…..

  14. Hi Gina,
    Have you tried this recipe in the air fryer? My oven has been on the fritz lately so i was going to try it later on this week. Do you have any pointers?

    1. Try this one Heather– 🙂

  15. Made these chops last night. Substituted Wheaties for the corn flakes. They were delicious and a big hit with the family. Will definitely be making these again. Thank you for the great recipe!!

      I substituted frosted flakes…mainly because it’s what I had in the pantry…and wow!!  My whole family loved them!!

  16. This recipe was excellent. Crust came out crisp, golden and flavorful (I used regular, unseasoned breadcrumbs and honey bunches of oats, good substitutes). Served with oven roasted yukon gold potato wedges (same temp and time) and fresh green beans. Easy and delicious dinner.

    This is the ONLY oven fried recipe I have tried that comes out crispy and it is very good!. Most oven fried recipes I have tried don’t come out crispy because the oven temp is not high enough and there is flour for breading, not dry crumbs. So then it ends up as a soggy and greasy mess. I agree the salt should be cut back some in this recipe.

    Great recipe!

  18. Yummy recipe. I would cut the salt a bit and reduce the oven temp to 400 degrees. Or lessen the time.  A keeper for sure.

    I wanted to make Shake and Bake Pork Chops but with the quarantine for COVID 19, I was hesitant to venture out to the store for one item. I stumbled across this recipe and tried it. The family loved it so much that they told me never to buy or use Shake and Bake again. This should be called better than Shake and Bake.

  20. I don’t have corn flakes and would rather not buy for one recipe? I have like corn tortilla chips could I use those? Does anybody else has any other suggestions for substitutions?

    1. I made it with 1/4 cup plain bread crumbs and 1 cup honey bunch cereal oats (i used a food processor to grind) . So delicious !

    Didn’t have all ingredients, subbed onion salt for onion powder and kosher salt, left out chili powder and pepper because of fussy kids but still a  winner!

  22. I am curious to know if you can use a bone in pork chop for this recipe. Would appreciate your thoughts.  We find the boneless pork chops dry   Thank you

    There had to have been an ad campaign featuring corn flake coating (my mom would use sour cream to make the corn flakes stick) and Rice a Roni. We actually had the Pasta Roni Parmesan(or stinky noodles) this was a big favorite in our home growing up.  Thanks for the smile.

    Don;t know what I did wrong, but I though they needed more seasoning. Yes, smelled good, and my daughter, working from home, kept asking if it was ready to eat. The breading did not stick to the pork chops well and again needed more flavor.

  26. I tried this and was a little disappointed. I expected them to get a bit of crunch on the outside but not at all. I thought the crust would back to the meat and it didn’t. What did I do wrong?

  27. This is the  Best Pork Chop Recipe!!  I didn’t have Corn flakes so I used Raisin Bran Flakes.. The Pork Chops came out soo Moist! Thanks for sharing..  

  28. Hi, That was a delicious coating.
    I didn’t have any corn flakes but I did have a bag of Fritos chili cheese corn chips.
    Since they were salted I just didn’t add anymore salt to the coating.
    i used the coating on baked chicken.

  29. Amazing! I only added one spice to this my favorite Seasoned Pepper and also I didn’t have any corn flakes so I just used all Panko instead and it was still delicious and fast! Thank you!

  30. I say, I say.! Whata blast. This ain’t any dish as its sooo delicious. The breadcrumbs keep in the flavours and juices. Horay. Hahaa. Happi holidays.

  31. We’ve done this recipe several times for both pork chops and chicken parts. Smells like heaven and tastes the same!

    These were fantastic.  I improvised as I was making two chops but what a great find.  Will definitely make these again.  In fact, we are going to use the breading with chicken as well.

  33. I made these for the first time last night. They were delicious, and so easy to make! Thanks for the great WW friendly recipes! I bought your books, and am making things in never thought i would eat! I am new to the Ninja foodi, and love that i can use your recipes in it.

    I didn’t have spray oil. In a different version of oven fried chops, the directions said to just melt butter in the cooking pan, so I put my pan in the oven while I breaded the chops, but alas, the butter at 425 browned in no time!  I should have figured that one out! I plunked the first breaded chop into it and went on to the second. The third chop was placed on the pan without butter or oil, but i did put a very tiny dab of butter on top the chop.  Also, I did not use any cornflake crumbs or cheese.  (I had made a cornflake/parm encrusted chop previously and hated it, so I put all the cooked chops in the fridge and gave them to the dog over the course of a week–they did not have salt or other seasonings so were safe for him.). I will be buying spray oil and try this one to the letter next time!

  40. Great recipe! I had to double it for my family but it was great with asparagus and fried potatoes!   Thank you!

  41. I have thick boneless pork chops. How long do I bake them for? Would I need to turn them over half way?

    1. Yes same as recipe directions. If they are thicker than 3/4 inch, cook for another 3-7 or so minutes until they are ready.

  42. I have center cut pork chops with the bone in can I use that and if so how long do I leave them in the oven for and what temperature

  43. I didn’t have any panko crumbs, so I crushed up sea salt crackers. Probably not as good as yours but they were pretty good. I am so excited I found you.
    Thank you,

  44. One of my family’s favorites, it’s requested a lot! Kids gobble this up. I am dairy free and leave out the parm for myself without issue.

    Making now, and can’t wait to see the results. I drizzled with EVOO instead of cooking spray. I hope they come out crispy.

  46. Too many ingredients. Try a box of pork Stove Top Stuffing. Pour stuffing in a gallon zip lock bag, smash and roll. add garlic salt and onion powder. Dip chops in egg then in crushed stove top. then bake as your receipe.

  47. Awesome flavors! The smell of this dish baking was so enticing! I used crushed RITZ crackers in place of corn flakes, mmmmm. Didn’t change much else though. I had a bag of spinach that needed cooking so I washed and dried it, drizzled it in olive oil, and used it to line the bottom of a 9×13 baking dish. Then I placed the breaded chops on top. The spinach keeps the meat from sticking, adds some greenery, and the bits around the edges of the dish are crispy bits of heaven! Thanks for the recipe, it will be a favorite in our house from now on! Pork chop perfection!

  48. This is one meal that I can make and everyone will eat, including my picky kids!  Great flavor and easy for weeknight meals.  Two thumbs up!

    Great, moist pork chops that are crispy on the outside.  My husband asks for this dish several times a month.

    1. The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting 0 points foods such as eggs, chicken, fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, that is why.

      The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”)

    1. aluminum baking sheets vs nonstick will give you crisper results. Also, I have an air fryer version, super crisp!

  50. I’ve made this two weeks in a row but with turkey cutlets. They came out amazing! First time getting them so crispy in the oven!

  51. I’ve been making breaded pork chops for years but always get the same results. There soggy on one side. Help me make crispy chops plz

    1. Very crispy & tasty. I lined the pan with foil & brushed it with melted butter. Also drizzled the pork w/ melted butter. I used thin pork cutlets & wheat Chex in place of corn flakes. Halfway thru baking, I turned the pan around & turned the meat over. I think a sauce would be a wonderful addition.  

  52. Would you please share your healthy Rice A Roni recipe. I’ve recently found you and your amazing recipes and make them for my family every week religiously.

    Husband hates dry porkchops. Do these turn out moist?  I have brined my pork but find it too salty.  Any thoughts?

  54. my chops didn’t come out brown and crispy either. Tried moving them around the oven and broiled them for a few minutes for color. I won’t be making these again

  55. Making this right now… didn’t have any cornflakes so am just using panko. Smells wonderful in my house!

  56. Just put them in the oven…. I didn’t have any corn flakes so I only used panko bread crumbs and I didn’t have paprika (I can’t believe I’m out of paprika!) … I should have used some crushed tortilla chips in place of the corn flakes but I didn’t think of that until it was too late ???? hopefully they’ll come out OK!

  57. I followed the recipe exactly, but I couldn’t get the breading brown and crispy like it shows in the picture.  I even tried broiling at the end, but that didn’t work.  Not sure what I’m doing wrong 

    1. All ovens run different, perhaps your oven runs cooler? You could increase the temp of the oven or make them in the lower third of the oven which is hotter.

  58. I bought really thin pork chops… maybe a quarter of an inch thick. How long should they cook for given the reduced thickness?

  59. I’ve made my own shake n bake porkchops for awhile now. I don’t do the egg dip and I’ll use a packet of onion soup mix along with the other seasonings. So good everyone in the household loves them!

  60. For both this recipe and the Brussels sprouts with hot sauce and bleu cheese, they both came in a point higher than you have. I didn’t substitute anything and used the nutritional facts you put in. Anyone else having this issue??

    1. The only accurate way to determine any recipe’s SmartPoints® value is to plug the ingredients into the recipe builder on the Weight Watchers website (Click on “My Foods,” select “Recipe,” and click “Create a recipe.”) which does not count fruits and vegetables in recipes in the calculations as they are now 0 points.

      The SmartPoints® calculator isn’t meant for recipes and will often give you the wrong points (usually higher) because it’s counting the fruits and vegetables. So if you see a recipe with a SmartPoints® value that’s different from what the calculator tells you, now you know why.

  61. I read through 3 years of comments looking for your rica a roni recipe which you said you would submit after Thanksgiving of course I didn’t find it. I suppose you didn’t say which Thanksgiving. Posting from Ireland I don’t even know what rica a roni is! I think I’ll google it.

  62. Gina, you need to rush right out and buy an air fryer so you can start figuring out some healthy recipes for all of us to use it ????.  Your oven fried pork chops for example might translate well. 

  63. Could you please link to the Rica a Roni recipe you mentioned that you would post? Thanks! Looking forward to making this.

      1. Hi could you please share with us your rice a roni recipe. I would love to make it! PLEASE!!! Lol

  64. This is my go to website for recipes, I’ve yet to be disappointed. Didn’t have the cornflakes or sweet paprika. Used funyans and regular paprika. It was delicious!!! Didn’t have the baking rack other commentors mentioned and ended up with soggy bottoms.

  65. They tasted great but came out so so soggy… Dont know what i did wrong. Any ideas? I followed the recipe to the T (only I didn’t have cornflakes so used all Panko)

  66. Oh my goodness! I made this last night and it was a big hit with my family! (Well, not so much with my toddler, but getting him to eat meat is tricky and getting him to eat anything when he’s as exhausted as he was is a miracle) So easy, though the steps can be a little time consuming. It was one of the best chops I’ve had in my life, and thanks to your cook time, I (for once) did not over cook the pork chop. Thank you for putting this recipe together!

  69. I made these a while ago and my husband who has never been a fan of pork said that these were the best he has ever had. I going to try the mix on chicken tonight.

  70. I typed all of this into the WW calculator and it actually says it's 8 smart points, not 7. Also, the calculator asks how many grams of Saturated Fat?

  71. Please please please share your rice a toni recipe! I follow your recipes religiously and I've lost 65 lbs. Patiently awaiting more recipes!!

  72. I made these last night. Yum!! My family loved them. I served it with your Skinny Baked Broccoli Macaroni and Cheese. My pork chops were super thick so I cut them in half so they were less points, which was a good thing so I could eat the full portion of the Mac and Cheese. I didn't have sweet paprika but use smoked paprika. Delicious!!! I made a ton and froze them for another time. Thanks so much! You have made my Weight Watcher plan fun and exciting. I love to cook with "real" ingredients and your recipes are just perfect. My family loves them!

  73. Do you think this would work with any other cut of pork? My freezer is full of pork tenderloin and always looking to do something different with it.

  74. I made these tonight and they are the best pork chops I've had. My granddaughter, who is 4 1/2, gobbled them up! These will become a regular in our house!

  80. I love your recipes and your book. On this recipe, is the macros or calories off? I'm getting a different amount when I do the calculations.
    Protein – 33×4 = 132 , Carbs – 8×4 = 32 , Fat 9×13 = 117
    132+32+117 = 281 calories
    That's almost a 100 difference calorie from the 378.
    Thanks for all the awesome recipes. Your site and book are amazing.

  81. I made these tonight with the Cheesy Cauliflower Mash from your cookbook and roasted broccoli. Amazing!! Thank you for all of your wonderful recipes, your website and cookbook are the first places I go for new recipes!

  82. These were delicious!! I did make the mistake of spraying too much cooking spray on the top so they were crunchy but not as much as I wanted them to be. All in all, they were really good and my husband loved them. The Brussels sprouts were also great!! Thank you so much! Definitely a keeper!!

    I'm going to try these tonight with bone-in chops, and adjust the bake time accordingly. It's difficult to get all six kiddos (all age eight and under) to eat pork, but the hubby gets half a freezer full from his boss every year, and we can't afford not to eat it! Hopefully these will be a crowd pleaser with our picky crew!!!

      1. I have tried this recipe both ways and prefer it with bone-in. The meat always seems to be much more tender!

  84. I am gluten free but my family is not. I have made a similar recipe in the past, but in order to keep it gluten free (but still tasty),I use ground up oats in place of breadcrumbs. Thought I would share for all the GF readers who may still want to try this recipe 🙂

  85. These are perfect! Am really looking forward to a healthier rice-a-roni. Thank you for all the work you do!

    How do you keep the breading from sticking to the pan? I tried this before and it always sticks.

    1. You can use parchment paper to line your pan. You can also prespray your pan with PAM or brush under each chop with oil.

    2. The trick I thought of was pouring a tablespoon of vegetable or canola oil in the bottom of the pan, making sure that the pan is coated with the oil. Then put the coated pork chops in the pan. Then drizzle one more tablespoon of oil on top of the chops. They will never stick, AND they will taste like they’ve been fried. Also, all of the coating will remain on the chops until the very last bite. Before doing this, I would be eating the chops and the coating seemed to “sweat off” on the bottom. Plus, the chops will be super moist and delicious! Enjoy!

  94. I do a similar prep for oven "fried" chicken. One difference is to dredge the meat they flour before the egg wash. Some southerners think this seals in more flavor. This southerner has found it helps the panko and spice mixture adhere better. The Brussels sprouts salad appeared on our table last night — surprisingly good!

    Heh…the Shake 'n' Bake pork chops, Rice-a-Roni, and broccoli (from frozen, generally) is definitely a meal my mom would have made when she was doing the cooking for the family. My mom hated cooking! I didn't realize how good food could be until my dad took over at mealtimes.

  98. Omg yum!! I do this with chicken on occasions, but have never tried it with pork chops! Will be trying next week 🙂

    I haven't had pork chops since I moved out of my parents house! It's just never really on my radar…so glad I came across this! 🙂

    1. I combined plain Panko bread crumbs with traditional packaged stuffing mix along with the Parmesan & spices. I love to experiment with spices. My husband loved the crispy crust and how great the pork chops tasted. This recipe is a keeper yet allows one to experiment.

  102. Do you mean crushed corn flakes cereal or do you mean these: ?

    Please share your Rice-a-Roni recipe! It's one of my childhood favorites as well but makes me feel guilty to eat as an adult!

      Oh I agree! I love Rice a Roni and haven't had it in years. We have a family member with an onion allergy, too. Please share your recipe so I can make it from scratch, haha!
