Best Ever Baked Pork Chops

"What's for dinner?" is that question I hear every day at my house. I try to make meals that my husband likes, but I also look for new recipes that could be added to some of his old favorites. This pork chop recipe is one of those that I found recently and will be keeping as a regular. The original recipe is found here.







Best Ever Baked Pork Chops

bottled Ranch dressing
3 cups dry Italian bread crumbs
1 (0.6 ounce) package dry Italian dressing mix
2 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon powdered garlic
6 pork chops

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Prepare a sheet pan by lining with aluminum foil. Pour a layer of Ranch dressing into a shallow bowl. In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, Italian dressing mix, parmesan cheese, and garlic.  Dip one pork chop at a time in the Ranch dressing, turning to coat both sides, then put it in the bread crumb mixture, coating well on both sides. Place pork chops on prepared pan. Bake in preheated oven for 45 minutes or until reaching an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.


 
Use your favorite bottled Ranch dressing for dipping the pork chops.

 
Combine dry Italian Dressing mix, grated Parmesan cheese, Italian bread crumbs, and powdered garlic for the breading.

 

Pour the Ranch dressing in a shallow bowl and combine the dry ingredient in a separate bowl.

 
The recipe called for 6 pork chops, but we didn't need that many, so I made 3. After the chops have been dipped in the ranch dressing and the bread crumb mixture, place them on a foil lined sheet pan and bake for about 45 minutes. I always love a recipe like this with an easy clean up.


 

These are delicious pork chops, try them and you might even agree that they live up to their name - the Best Ever Baked Pork Chops.

  2. I bet they do live up to their name! We eat pork chops quite often so it's nice to find another way to prepare them. Ranch dressing makes almost anything taste good so this is sure to be very tasty. Thanks for the recipe, Anita.-------- Shannon

  12. I thought this would be much better. The pork chops weren't great. The breading stuck to the pan and completely came off of the meat on one side. It was pretty mushy. I won't make them again.

    1. I feel bad that these didn't turn out well for you, you must have been so disappointed. I don't know what went wrong, so sorry!

    2. I just read somewhere that baked pork chops come out crispy when breaded if you bake them on a RACK over a pan; do NOT place them on foil or in a flat pan ... that's why they got mushy and you lost the breading.
