Breaded Pork Chops - juicy boneless pork chops coated with buttered and seasoned breadcrumb mixture and baked to golden perfection. This might be your new go-to dinner option. Easy, satisfying and they're baked!
Preheat oven to 400 degree F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and with cooking oil spray. Set aside.
Melt butter in a medium sized skillet or pan over medium high heat. Add in panko, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, onion powder, lemon zest, parmesan cheese (optional), salt and pepper to taste. Mix well until combined. Remove from the heat when bread crumbs start to turn light brown, about 2-3 minutes. Set aside.
Season pork chops on both sides with salt, pepper and creole seasoning.
Break eggs into a light shallow bowl, add in the Worcestershire and lightly beat the egg mixture.
Dip pork chop into the egg mixture, shake to take off excess then coat with breadcrumbs making sure all surfaces are covered, shake of the excess and place on a plate. Repeat the process for the other pork chops.
Place breaded pork in the refrigerator for about 10-12 minutes or overnight, this helps the coating to cling well on the pork.
Place pork in the already prepared baking sheet, drizzle with oil and bake for about 15 minutes. Season with parsley and serve.
You may coat your pork chops with potato chips, tortilla chips, pretzels, corn flakes and even nuts!
Adjust the baking time if pork chops are thicker than an inch to allow it to cook all the way through. Pork needs to be cooked to an internal meat temperature of 160 F.
To freeze them, wrap each breaded uncooked pork chop in a freezer paper, then wrap them in a plastic wrap before storing them in an airtight container and into the freezer. This method could also help the pork chops last up to 2 months.
You may pan-fry or deep- fry these breaded pork chops. Remember, do not overcrowd your pan and work in batches. I prefer to use cast-iron when frying meat as it retains heat well.
