Use my Homemade Shake and Bake Mix to cover pork chops to make them crunchy and well seasoned. You won’t believe how fast it is to cook this for dinner.
I recently discovered how easy it is to make Homemade Shake and Bake. All it takes is a few simple pantry staples and you’re on your way to a crispy, delightful meal. No need to use the storebought stuff anymore.
Pork chops are delicious when coated with this Shake and Bake recipe of mine. The spices and seasoning mixed into the breadcrumb mixture play really well with the flavor of pork. It’s a really simple thing to throw together when you don’t want a plain chop, but you don’t want to spend all day marinating something.
This recipe is fast. Like quicker than takeout fast. You can whip up the homemade Shake and Bake in no time at all, and it takes seconds to coat the pork in it.
After I coat the pork in the Shake and Bake, I lay it on a shallow sheet pan so it has enough room to circulate and get crispy in the oven. You don’t want to overcrowd the pork so use two pans if necessary. And then, it’s time to dig in when everything is baked to crunchy perfection.
Add the pork chops to a plastic bag with the oil. Massage and coat the pork chops.
Add the breadcrumb mixture and shake, shake, shake until the chops are totally coated.
Lay the pork chops on a shallow baking sheet lined with parchment.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the internal temperature of the pork is 145-160°F. 145°F is considered safe for pork according to the USDA. It will be moist and slightly pink in the center. If you prefer your pork fully white and well done, then go with the 160°F temperature.
