It’s the perfect combination of textures and flavors if you ask me.

I made these for dinner the other night and my family absolutely devoured them.

Even my 4 year old who’s not too adventurous when it comes to trying new foods finished his.

You can’t really go wrong with a juicy breaded pork chop though right?

It’s a home run dinner choice because they’re such a crowd pleaser every time.

I know if you give these a try you’re going to love them just as much as my family did.

It’s kind of hard not to.

Do I have to use bone in pork chops?

No you don’t have to use bone in pork chops for this recipe.

You can use boneless pork chops if you’d like.

Just follow the instructs on the recipe the same but adjust the cooking time.

They may not need be baked as long and the bone in chops.

What should I serve with these juicy breaded pork chops?

The possibilities are endless in terms of what to serve for side dishes.

I like to serve these pork chops with either rice, macaroni and cheese or homemade garlic bread.

Then I choose a vegetable to go along with it. Here are some ideas if you’re looking for inspiration:

Can these juicy breaded pork chops be air fried?

Yes these pork chops can be cooked in the air fryer.

Again it depends on what size your pork chops are. If you’re using thin boneless ones then the time will need to be adjusted.

I’d you’re using bone in thicker pork chops like I did it will be about 6/7 minutes on each side at 400° or until they reach an internal temperature of 145°.

Just be sure to spray the pork chops on both sides with just a little bit of cooking spray.

How do I reheat these juicy breaded pork chops?

These can easily be reheated in your oven.

Set the oven temperature to 400° and wrap the pork chops tightly in tin foil.

This will prevent them from drying out.

Place the wrapped pork chops on a baking sheet and cook them for about 8 minutes on each side.

Remove the tin foil and serve warm.

Once the pork chops are all breaded place the oil into a large skillet. Heat it over medium high heat until it’s ready to fry ( the oil should be about 350°).

Place the pork chops onto a baking sheet once they’re done.

I made a little mistake here and placed them directly onto the baking sheet. I should have used a wire rack. If you have one please use one. It wasn’t a big deal but the side of the pork chops that was against the cookie sheet didn’t get as crispy as I would have liked.

Now bake the pork chops at 375° for about 15 minutes or until they’re internal temperature reaches 145°.

oven temperature set to 375 degrees

Serve them warm and enjoy!
