Baked Pork Chops

(from castro15’s recipe box)

Categories: Pork


  • 1 1/2 cups panko
  • 5 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 3 tablespoons grated Parmesan
  • 2 teaspoons dried Italian seasoning
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Four 3/4-inch bone-in pork chops (about 2 1/4 pounds)
  • Lemon wedges, for serving, optional


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F.

  2. Combine the panko, oil, Parmesan, Italian seasoning and 3/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Put the pork chops in a large bowl and toss to coat with 1 tablespoon water. Place the pork chops in the bag and shake well to coat, pressing the breadcrumb mixture firmly into the meat.

  3. Place the pork chops on a wire rack set on a baking sheet and top evenly with any breadcrumbs remaining in the bag. Bake until the breadcrumbs are dark golden and the internal temperature of the chops registers 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer (avoid touching bone), 15 to 20 minutes.

  4. Serve immediately with lemon wedges if using.
