Ingredients

  • Pork Chops – The star of the show! I tend to use center-cut boneless pork chops and trim the fat around the edges. However, you can use any cut you like. Just remember, the thinner the chops, the faster they cook.
  • Butter – For greasing the baking dish. And because everything tastes better with butter!
  • Egg – You’ll need this as a binding agent for the breading.
  • Milk – Another ingredient you’ll need for dredging the chops. It helps to thin out the binding mixture, making it a little less eggy.
  • Pepper – You can’t season pork chops properly without it!
  • Herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix – This is the secret to getting the most flavorful coating and crispy texture. And, it’s super convenient.

How to Make Oven-Fried Pork Chops

With just six ingredients and 30 minutes, you can throw together these mouthwatering pork chops!

Here’s how:

1. Grease the baking dish. Fully coat it with melted butter so the chops don’t stick.

2. Prepare the dredging station. In a shallow dish, mix together an egg, milk, and pepper. In a separate shallow dish, add the herb-seasoned dry bread stuffing mix.

3. Dredge the chops. Dip both sides of a pork chop into the egg mixture, then coat both sides with the bread stuffing mix. Repeat until all the pork chops are dredged.

4. Bake at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees Fahrenheit. Don’t forget to flip them at the halfway point!

Tips for the Best Pork Chops

  • Pat the pork chops dry. This simple trick will help you get the crispiest pork chops around!
  • Use a meat thermometer. Forget the guessing game, play it safe and let the meat thermometer tell you when the pork chops are ready. They need to be at least 145 degrees Fahrenheit to eat safely.
  • Watch the clock! While thick chops are great, thinner ones cook faster. So keep an eye out because the cooking time can vary.
  • Pepperidge Farms herb stuffing mix is one of the best!
  • Is the stuffing mix too chunky? Crush it! You can do this in seconds with a food processor. Or, you can toss it in a resealable plastic bag and crush them with a rolling pin.
  • Swap out the stuffing mix for Italian breadcrumbs or Shake ‘n Bake. They’re both delicious!
  • Skip the egg mixture and go with mayo. The breadcrumbs will still stick all the same and it adds a great flavor. You can even toss in some spices like garlic, paprika, or onion powder if you like.
  • Use parchment paper and a baking sheet. It eliminates the need for greasing a baking dish for an even healthier take. Plus, the pork chops won’t stick to the pan.

How to Store and Reheat

Have some leftovers? No problem!

You can store those pork chops away for a quick meal some other day.

Here’s how to do it:

To Store: Place cold leftovers in an air-tight container and pop them in the fridge. They’ll last for about 4 to 5 days. But the sooner you eat them, the better!

To Freeze: Place cold leftovers in a freezer-safe container or zip-top bag. Freeze for up to 3 months.

To Reheat: Thaw frozen chops in the fridge overnight. Reheat in the oven at 350°Fahrenheit for around 10-15 minutes. Or in the air fryer at 380°F for 5-10 minutes.

  1. How do you get the breading to stick to the meat? I followed your directions and when I flip the chops, the breading falls off.

    Thanks

    • Hi Jeni, here's a trick you can try! When cooking, turn them gently mid-way to keep the breading intact. Also, let the breaded pork chops rest for 5-10 minutes before cooking. This waiting period helps the breading set and adhere better to the meat, reducing the chances of it falling off during cooking.
