Breaded Baked Pork Chops

I knew we were going to have pork chops for dinner but I did not know how I was going to 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 simplicity of the recipe and how it is healthy for you. My husband raved about it so I’ll say it was a success!!!

  3. Put Extra Virgin Olive Oil in one bowl and breadcrumbs, panko, Parmesan cheese and Italian seasoning in another bowl.
  4. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper.  Dip in the Extra Virgin Olive Oil making sure to get all sides evenly coated.
  5. Dip in the breadcrumb mixture until it’s coated.  Place in the baking dish.
  6. Repeat with the other pieces of pork chops.
  7. Spray the top with olive oil spray.
  8. Bake for 20 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.  (Turn once while baking)
