Ingredients for crispy breaded pork chops

Use bone-in chops of the same thickness, and in my opinion the thicker the better. I usually ask my butcher to prepare chops that are at least one-inch thick with just a sliver of fat running along the edge. That fat will crisp up during the baking, adding a delicious flavour.

Pork chops coated with a mix of cheese and breadcrumbs

I’ve made this recipe using everything from fancy gluten-free breadcrumbs and Japanese panko to store-bought and homemade versions that I made in a pinch. Mixing the breadcrumbs with fine-chopped fresh herbs and grated cheese adds a wonderful flavour.

The pork chops freshly baked and out of the oven

Baking the breaded chops in a hot oven ensures that they come out with that all-important crispy-outside-juicy-inside finish. I also think this is the perfect occasion to use the convection feature on your oven, if you have it. Just make sure you elevate the breaded chops on a wire rack that sits within your baking sheet so that the hot air can circulate around the top and bottom of the chops.
