Crispy, Juicy, and Irresistibly Flavorful: Delicious Baked Pork Chops Recipe

Ridley's Wreckage

One of the best things about these baked pork chops is their crispy exterior. You get a crunchy texture from this "false" frying hack I like to use along with a coating of panko. The interior stays full of juicy goodness. They have a delicious flavor, thanks to the parmesan cheese and Italian seasonings. They are simple to prepare without the hassles of conventional frying while still achieving that great crunch.

Prep Time: 15 mins; Cook Time: 35 mins; Resting Time: 5 mins; Serves 4 chops


  • 4 boneless pork chops (around 6 ounces each and 1/2 inch thick)
  • 1 large egg, slightly beaten
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp. whole milk
  • 1/2 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon lemon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry Italian seasoning
  • 2-4 tablespoons of melted butter


Warm your oven to 350°F. With your non-stick cooking spray, coat a rimmed baking sheet fitted with a baking rack. You could also line your baking sheet with foil or parchment. Just be sure to spray your baking rack. Place to the side.

Using a shallow dish, lightly beat your egg and milk. Add in your 1/4 tsp. garlic salt and black pepper.

Mix your breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and lemon pepper. On a plate, mix together the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, lemon pepper, garlic salt (remaining 1/2 teaspoon of garlic salt), onion powder, and dry Italian seasoning.

Next, take your pork chop and add it to your egg wash. Then add your chops to seasoned breadcrumbs, making sure to press your crumbs into your chop. Place it on your baking rack.

Now for the false-frying hack! Using a tablespoon, drizzle 1/2–1 tablespoon of melted butter over each chop. You could also spray with cooking spray.

Place your chops into your preheated oven and bake for 30-35 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145–150 degrees. You can turn your oven to broil and brown your sides more if desired.

Allow your chops to rest for 3–5 minutes, then dish them up!

Enjoy, friends! ❤️
