Breaded Baked Pork Chops

I knew we would have pork chops for dinner, but I did not know how I would fix them. As I was driving home that night, a light bulb went off in my head. “Why don’t I make them like the baked chicken nuggets we had a few weeks prior?”

I like the recipe’s simplicity and how it is healthy for you. My husband raved about it so I’ll say it was a success!!!
