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.

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.
