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!

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

  2. 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.

  5. 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!

  6. 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.

  7. 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…..
    Thanks

  8. 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– https://www.skinnytaste.com/crispy-breaded-pork-chops-in-the-air-fryer/ 🙂

  9. 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!!

  10. 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!

  12. 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.

  14. 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!

  16. 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
