Crispy Baked Parmesan Pork Chops Recipe Will Not Disappoint

I have a confession to make: I don’t eat pork. Or at least not very much pork. I’m not allergic and it’s not for religious purposes, I just don’t particularly like it. However, my hubby and younger son are big carnivores. In addition to burgers and steak, they also love spare ribs, ham, pork chops, and, of course, bacon (I’ll stick with my turkey bacon!).

I now have teen boys. One is in eighth grade and the other is a senior in high school. My nearly 18-year-old is around 6 foot, 2 inches, and over 200 pounds. He’s the tallest, broadest person on my side of the family (and we have some height in my family!), and he’s still growing!

Growing teenagers equal big eaters, and big eaters equal a big grocery bill! I swear, every time I grocery shop it only takes a couple of days for one of them to declare “We have no food!” With groceries being pricier than ever, I’ve been keeping my eye out for deals as much as I can.

The other day I saw pork chops, which are already reasonably priced (comparatively) on sale, buy one, get one free, so I bought two packages and figured I’d come up with a recipe later. I felt I needed a new pork chop recipe because I really don’t like the way we’ve made them in the past. This baked Parmesan pork chop recipe is my take on a friend’s recipe, and I highly recommend it. What a difference! It’s quick and easy and so much more flavorful than my old recipes (even I had some!).

To make this easy pork chop dinner you will need boneless pork chops, olive oil, breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and black pepper. Not too many ingredients, but the flavor is there! Serve these crispy baked pork chops for dinner with your favorite side dishes.

Recipe Notes

  • I prefer Italian breadcrumbs for this recipe. I think they add an additional punch of flavor.
  • Feel free to double the recipe if needed (the only way four chops worked for my big eaters is because we had chicken, too!).
  • Fresh is always best when it comes to cheese, so grate your own if you can. In a pinch, you could use pre-shredded Parmesan.
  • For color, add some parsley flakes.

Here’s how to make it:

  1. Combine breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, garlic powder and black pepper on a plate or shallow dish.
  2. Rub the pork chops with olive oil, then dip each chop in the breadcrumb mixture. Cover both sides. Use a fork to press the mixture firmly onto the pork chops to ensure that they're fully covered.
  3. Line a baking pan or baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray the foil with cooking spray. Place the pork chops on the sprayed foil and bake at 350 degrees F for 35 to 45 minutes, or until cooked through. Serve with potatoes and/or your favorite vegetables.
