Baked Pork Chop

December 27, 2019

This is like a shake ‘n bake recipe.  But infinitely better.  My mom made everything from scratch so this type of food item was never served.  But I was certainly cognizant of the ads.

I am trying desperately to not use plastic bags in our home.  It’s hard but I have reduced the use significantly.  The recipe calls for putting the ingredients into a plastic bag then putting the pork in and shaking it.  But I use a bowl so that I can avoid the use of plastics.  It’s up to you.

Baked Pork Chop from the Food Network Kitchen

1-1/2 cups panko

1/2 ounce Parmesan cheese, grated

2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning

3/4 teaspoon Kocher salt

3/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

5 tablespoons vegetable oil

2 to 4,  3/4 inch bone in center cut pork chops (depending on people serving, 1 pork chop per person)

1 tablespoon of water

Lemon wedges, for serving (optional), I did not do this.

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Prepare a rimmed cookie sheet by placing a piece of parchment on top of cookie sheet and then putting a wire rack on the parchment paper.

Combine the panko, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper in a large bowl.  Stir together until combined.  Add oil and stir again until combined thoroughly.   Put the pork chops in another large bowl with the water and moisten pork chops.  Place one pork chop in the panko mixture and coat with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing the mixture onto the pork chops.  Place the pork chop on the prepared pan.  Continue with the rest of the pork chops.

Bake pork chops until the breadcrumbs are dark golden and the internal temperature of the chops registers 165 degrees on an instant read thermometer, about 30 minutes.

Serve immediately.

if you can get a locally grown pork chop, all the better:

    Thanks Susie! I completely forgot about shake and bake! Re plastic bag, you can use a paper bag too for shaking
