Freezing – Feel free to freeze any leftovers as well. Freeze in a freezer friendly bag or container for 1-3 months. Thaw in fridge overnight, then reheat.
How To Reheat Leftovers

- If you want to use regular breadcrumbs go ahead. Panko breadcrumbs just have a bit more crunch.
- Some recommend a little pink left in pork chops to ensure they are juicy.
- Let the pork rest 5-10 minutes once you remove from the oven. This locks in the juices and prevents a dry chop!
- Pan searing the chops at first helps to ensure you have a crunchy coating.
A few common questions for making these baked breaded pork chops.
Start by dipping pork chops in egg then dredge I. The breadcrumbs mixture. Pan sear in oil then finish the chops off in the oven.
Start with a whisked egg and then place in the breading. Then flip the pork over to dredge the other side. If you want extra breading then re-dip in egg followed by breading.
If it bubbles and crackles, the oil is ready. Or if you are deep frying, use a thermometer to ensure the oil is the right temperature.
Depending on temperature and thickness of pork chops will greatly alter the cooking time. I cooked at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
