Tender Juicy Breaded Pork Chops

July 15, 2011

DSC08664My husband is not one to complain…

I used to call him a human vacuum cleaner. That is, until he hit 30, and started to realize that human vacuum cleaners don’t always keep their shape. Winking smile

But pork chops are certainly not his first choice of meats for dinner.

He was visiting a friend who was cooking pork chops for dinner.  And like normal – with a nod and a smile – he accepted them.  They happened to be some of the best, most juicy, tender, pork chops he had.  So – he asked for the secret.

I’m going to share the secret here…

Shake n’ Bake – in a frying pan and oil!!

Ok, I know – not the HEALTHIEST way to eat them, but certainly the most delicious Smile

Thin cut pork chops (or thick ones, cut in half)
Shake and Bake (any variety)
Side DishRecipe:
So my pork chops were about 1” thick, which I tend to think are too thick.  so I cut them in half.
Heat pan with about 1/4” of oil in the bottom.
Coat Pork Chops with breadding
Fry for 2-3 minutes per side

    Aloha Amy !

    Wow ! So many things you made are my works of art too ! I just wanted to let you know, I am so proud of you and that you cook good “Comfort Food” as myself. So many people eat out of a container,box,can these days I can not
    believe it. I am so very happy to read your article’s. It makes me happy to know there is someone like myself taking care of their families !
    Keep cooking girl ! I so love it ! By the way, I do the above recipe but I use the Progesso bread crumbs in a container. I usually use the Italian
    herbs for most. They have the original also, but we all like the Italian.
    I even add a cup or two of Progresso when I make a “Mean meatloaf” and trust me no leftovers either.
    Again, thanks, I have been meaning to comment about your cooking for a very long time.
    And yes, I have a garbage disposal I sleep with also ! He can not wait to get home every night after work just to eat “Comfort Food”. Thanks again.

    • Thanks so much for your comment Robyn!
      Good Suggestions for the bread crumbs! I have yet to make a meatloaf that my honey loves, maybe you want to share your recipe with me, and I could feature it here! I know he misses his mom’s meatloaf, but she is no longer with us to share that recipe with me.

      Haha! My husband the second he walks in the door – whether its 4:00pm or not, he’s stuffing his face with whatever he can find.

      Glad that you like my recipes!! I’ll keep ’em coming! I cook probably 4-5 nights a week, it’s just the point of taking pictures and sharing! (The other nights we eat leftovers – because there’s only really two 1/4 eaters here!)

  2. Yum! My husband loves pork chops, mashed potatoes, and applesauce!

  3. That looks so so so yummy right now!

  4. Very nice recipe and the picture looks great!

  5. Oh, my goodness! I just like so many of these recipes that I see! These pork chops look so yummy! And the thing about it is that they are easy to make!

    I love shake n bake, Never tried the frying method, just baking but I’ll give this a try. I was reading the above message and I too have used the Italian progresso crumbs. They’re real good

  7. I’ve never tried bredding chops, I want to try this

  8. These look wonderful! They look like and sound like the ones my momma used to make. Boy could she cook! Miss her and her cooking. Thanks so much for the recipe and bringing back fond memories of my momma.
