However, there are a few tips to help you achieve a juicy meat and crispy outside crust.

Choosing the meat.  Choose a chop that is 1/2-inch to 1-inch thick. They can be a bone-in pork chops, boneless pork chops, or even a pork loin sliced in. Grocery stores have a lot of options to choose from. If they are not an even thickness, or if you have thick pork chops, go ahead, and use a mallet to pound them a bit so they are even and the correct thickness. It will assure that they cook properly.

Pat the meat dry. For best results, use a few paper towels to pat the chops dry before adding to the plastic bag. This helps the breading stick.

Add a light coating of Olive Oil. It might seem counterintuitive but brushing the meat with a thin coating of olive oil before shaking them in the breadcrumb mixture helps it stick to the meat better. You could use an egg wash, but I have found the best way is to use the olive oil. The breading mixture seems to stick better when using the oil coating.

Let the meat rest. Once they reach the internal temperature, remove them from the oven and let them rest 10 minutes before serving. This helps the juice remain for a succulent chop.

Easy Baked Pork Meal

Use a Wire Rack. Using a wire rack in the baking pan allows for the heat of the oven to circulate around the top and bottom of the pork. This helps the meat cook evenly and the outside coating crisp. The coating will take on a golden-brown appearance when done.

Use an Instant Read Thermometer. Make sure that your meat is cooked through and at the correct temperature for the juiciest meat. Pork chops are done when they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees.

How to Store and Reheat Breaded Pork Chops

This dish will last up to 5 days in the refrigerator when stored in an airtight container. It is best to line a shallow container with paper towels in a single layer.

I do not recommend freezing breaded pork chop. When thawing the breading will become soggy upon and will fall off. Therefore, eat freshly baked out of the oven.

To reheat, place the pork chops on a baking sheet pan in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 15 minutes.
