Easy Crunchy Parmesan Ranch Baked Breaded Pork Chops

Easy Crunchy Parmesan Ranch Baked Breaded Pork Chops

Growing up we ate pork chops all the time. We weren’t a Shake ‘n Bake house, we used Oven Fry Extra Crispy. I still love a good and crispy baked pork chop but unfortunately Oven Fry is nowhere to be found in Calgary. Instead, I decided to figure out a recipe all by myself. This one is pretty good. It doesn’t taste exactly the same but I love it. Plus Evan and Dewey both gave it two thumbs up. In fact, Evan had me microwave the one leftover pork chop for him as a bedtime snack. He ate the whole thing and he is little vegetarian. So I’ve decided that this baked breaded pork chops recipe is a WINNER.

These are perfect to make on a weeknight for dinner when you are pressed for time. Add a salad and a carb side and you are done. Even your pickiest eater will love them (and so will you because they are easy and fast). Plus you will know that even though they are breaded, they aren’t fried so they’re healthier.

I usually shred my own but either works. Just not the parmesan in the green can that is super dry.

How can you get 5 servings out of 4 chops? Someone has to go without, or everyone loses a corner of their chop.
