  • “These pork chops were very tasty and so moist. I baked them at 400 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes only because after 45 minutes I realized that I did not turn the oven on. Even my picky husband said these are a keeper so they are now.Gabby”

  • “I did add garlic and onion powder to the bread crumb mixture, DH’s favorite!I used a cast iron DO so one pan went from stove top to oven.Easy and quick. Thanks”

  • “These were nice and tasty even though I over cooked them.My half-inch chops were a bit dry after baking at 350 for 30 minutes.Next time I’ll check them sooner.Thanks for the easy recipe… can’t wait to try it again.”

  • “I used Italian seasoned breadcrumbs and added a little parmesan cheese.Very good recipe!”

  • “This was so simple, yet tender and delicious.Seasoned the chops (boneless loin chops) instead of seasoning the breadcrumbs (used Italian breadcrumbs) and used olive oil instead of shortening, then followed instructions. These had a great flavor and were so tender, yet sooo easy to do!Thanks for the great recipe.”

  • “Very moist even without the drippings or water poured over top. I used corn flake crumbs since that is what I had on hand & used Lawry’s seasoning salt for a little extra zip. Thanks for posting.”

  • “Made these tonight and they taste was wonderful. These are wonderfully moist and tender. I did use some Mrs.Dash, garlic and just for topping and color some sundried tomatoes. This is one great recipe. Thanks for posting!”

  • “Simple and delicious.A great comfort food recipe, and easy to modify for larger quantities.Will definitely make this one again and again.”

  • “What a great, basic pork chop recipe!My husband and daughter gave it rave reviews.I used boneless loin chops which I browned in canola oil instead of shortening, then baked at 325 for 1 hour.Will definitely make these again!”

  • “Excellent Recipe The whole family enjoyed it”

  • “Great! I seasoned the breadcrumbs and chops with our favorites, and I used Panko crumbs.”

  • “Wonderfully tender!Added garlic powder to the seasonings and used a deep skillet for both the stove top and oven.Sprinkled some chicken broth over the top, after browning and before baking, to make the drippings.”

  • “So easy, and baked up tender and delicious.I’ve always found pork a challenge, so this recipe is very welcome.Thanks so much!”

  • “Deeeeeelicious!!!!!!! At the end instead of water, I used sour cream and some beef granules to pick up the bits (be careful as the granules are salty)… WOW!”

  • “Sometimes, simple is best!!! I’m so tired of tough pork chops… when I saw this, I decided to try one more time. I’m so glad that I did! I don’t know if it’s the shortening, the breading, or what, but the chops came out of the oven moist, juicy, & beautiful. All I did differently was to add some garlic powder to my Italian-Style bread crumbs. Perfect pork chops, at last!!”

  • “These were very good.They turned out moist and delicious.I plan on baking them more often.Thank you for sharing this recipe with us.”

  • “Such a simple recipe.Added some garlic powder to the breadcrumbs (I used Italian breadcrumbs as that is what I had) before I fried mine in oil instead of the shortening and did not pour the drippings over the chops before placing in the oven.They turned out so nice and tender.I think next time however, I will add more garlic powder or Mrs. Dash seasoning mix as I feel they need something to give them a bit more flavor.All in all though, a very good recipe.”

  • “My new favourite pork chop recipe!I wanted something that I could throw together quickly and didn’t have to run out to the store to get anything.This was perfect….so easy to put together. The pork chops were melt in your mouth tender and very juicy.I used the same frying pan to pan fry some apples in brown sugar to add to the chops.Great meal !Thanks for a winner !”

  • “This was YUMMMMMY!DH told me not to lose the recipe ;)I added a little garlic powder to the breadcrumbs.Yum!”

  • “I’m so glad that I found this recipe!I have a clear memory of delicious chops made by a friend’s mother, but I had forgotten the method she used to make them until reading this recipe.It is a winner in every way…easy, adaptable, delicious, and as I recall it was economical because you don’t need to use premium pork chops to have succulent meat.”
