Description

These Baked Pork Chops are delicious! If you want to ensure not having dry pork chops I highly encourage brining them at least a few hours before cooking or even overnight.?

**Cooking time does not include the brine


Ingredients

Scale

Pork Chops*

  • 1 pork loin, sliced into 1 1/2" cutlets (should get about 8-10 pork chops)
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasonings
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan
  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 egg
  • 2 Tablespoons olive oil, divided

Creamy Mustard Sauce

  • 1 cup half and half
  • 1/3 cup spicy brown mustard
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

*Optional Brine

  • 2 cups water
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 Tablespoons salt

Instructions

If you are using the brine:

  • Mix together the water, sugar, and salt in a large bowl, drop in the chops, and let them soak for a few hours or overnight.
  • Rinse the brine off before you start cooking the chops.

Pork Chops:

  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees, and grease a baking sheet with 1 tablespoon of oil.
  2. Mix together the breadcrumbs, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, garlic powder, Parmesan,and red pepper in a bowl.
  3. Beat the egg and milk in another bowl.
  4. Dunk each pork chop in the milk mixture and then into the breadcrumb mixture making sure its completely covered.
  5. Place the pork chops on the prepared greased baking sheet.
  6. Drizzle the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil evenly on top of the breaded pork chops.
  7. Bake on the top rack for 10 minutes, then rotate and switch to the bottom rack for another 10 minutes.
  8. If you want the top to get extra crispy turn the broiler on and bake an additional 2-3 minute (do not step away from the oven!).

Creamy Mustard Sauce:

  1. Mix together the mustard, half and half, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a small pot.
  2. Heat the sauce over medium for 10 minutes stirring occasionally.

Notes

If you don't need 8-10 pork chops at a time you can freeze the extra pork loins for a later use, and cut the breadcrumb mixture in half.
