Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops Baked Recipe Tips:

  • Type Of Skillet – For the best results, we recommend frying the pork chops in a cast iron skillet. It helps with the texture of the pork chop.
  • Baking Pork Chops – Try not to overcook your pork chops. Using a meat thermometer helps reach the perfect temperature of 145 degrees. Plus make sure you check them to ensure that you are not overcooking them.
  • Shallow Dish – We like to combine the parmesan mixture in a shallow dish. So it is easy to dip the pork chops into the mixture.
  • Resting Pork Chops – The main key to achieve a juicy pork chop is letting it rest for around 10 minutes. Then you can slice them. I also place a piece of foil lightly on the pork chops.
  • Prepare Baking Dish – Before placing the pan fried pork chops in the baking dish, spray with cooking spray. This helps for an easy cleanup and prevents the pork chops from sticking to the pan. You can also baking pork chops on a baking sheet.
