Crispy Baked Pork Chops make everyone excited to gather for a meal. Aside from being crispy on the outside, its insides are so tender and juicy that one cannot just have a single bite.

To make this recipe, you don’t even need to have a lot of experience in the kitchen. You just need fresh ingredients and an oven, then you are good to go. 

I hope you enjoy making this lean, crispy, and juicy dish as much as I did. Try it and have a new go-to recipe for any family gathering.

How to bake Pork Chops?

  1. Preparing the oven and the pan. Preheat your oven to 425F and grease the pan with cooking spray.
  2. Season the meat. Rub olive oil generously onto the meat to achieve that crispy outer skin. Then, season according to taste. 
  3. Make the coating. Crack an egg in a bowl and beat it. In a separate container, mix breadcrumbs, parmesan, parsley, Italian herbs, paprika, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper.
  4. Coat. Dip the meat in the egg and make sure that all sides are generously coated. Then, do the same in the breadcrumbs.
  5. Bake. Place the breaded meat on the pan. Then, bake for at least 18 minutes, or more, depending on the thickness of the meat.
  6. Serve. After it is done, let it rest for a few minutes then drizzle some sauce or garnish with desired herbs. Then, serve.

How long to bake?

It all depends on how thick the meat is. For those with an inch-thick cut, it will be ready for 20 minutes. If it is 1 ½ inch, then they are done within 25 minutes. 

How to tell when Pork Chops are done?

If you have a food thermometer, it should be done when it reaches 145F. Otherwise, just observe when there is no more pink coloring or when the texture is slightly firm.

What to serve with Pork Chops?

While they are already mouthwatering alone, you can upgrade the experience by serving them with healthy greens such as the following sides:

Storing instructions: 

  1. Storing: Free the coldest section of your fridge. Wrap the chops in plastic wrap, aluminum foil, or you could also place them inside a shallow container. Store it in the coldest section and consume within 4 days. 
  2. Reheating: Preheat oven to 350F. Prepare a pan with two tablespoons of water or broth, if you want added flavor. Place the leftovers inside and cover the pan with aluminum foil, bake in the oven for 10 minutes.

Recipe tips:

  • As with other baking tips, the thicker the meat, the better. Pork easily overcooks so in order to get that crispy skin and tender meat, try to use thicker cuts. 
  • Don’t have an oven? You can also make this recipe in a quicker way by using an Air Fryer. You should check out how I made Air Fryer Pork Chops.

Take closer to 45-50 mins to cook. Dont know who likes half raw pork cooked at 20 mins 😬


I guess it depends how you like yours and how your oven works, mine are usually done in 20-30 mins top.


Lea Pisarik

If you cook them on a wire rack, would you need to spray both sides rather than just the tops with the cooking spray?


better yes

This recipe is excellent. I only had three but they were delicious and juicy. Took hardly anytime to make. Will definitely prepare again!


Chicago Knitter

Fabulous and easy!



My picky daughter LOVES the flavor of these! I have made these numerous times. The only problem I have is, they never get crispy, probably because I dont use the Panko breadcrumbs since I never have them on hand.....BUT......the flavor is amazing so it's still a win for me. :)
