Easy Baked Pork Chops are covered with a seasoned bread crumb/Parmesan cheese mix for lots of flavor! Prep time is 10 minutes, then bake until done!
Preheat oven to 350°F. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on a rimmed baking sheet. Place a wire rack on top of the baking sheet and give it a light spray with non-stick cooking spray.
Trim excess fat from pork. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Place one chop at a time into egg, and turn to coat all sides. Let excess liquid drip into the bowl, and then lay pork on bread crumb mix. Coat all sides with crumb topping, lightly pressing crumbs onto all sides. Repeat for all pork chops. Place the breaded chops onto wire rack in a single layer. NOTE: I lightly sprayed each pork chop with a little olive oil to help brown/crisp them (a trick I learned from air-frying), but this step is optional.
Place baking sheet on the middle rack, and bake chops at 350°F for approximately 25 minutes (time may vary slightly due to varying thicknesses of pork used). Pork is considered safe to eat once it reaches an internal temperature of 145°F. Once done, remove from oven and let them rest for 2-3 minutes before serving. If desired, garnish each chop with additional Parmesan cheese, and a sprinkle of parsley.
NOTE: Temperatures can vary in ovens, so I recommend checking the chops at the 25 minute mark. Please know they might take a few more minutes to fully cook through to an internal temp. of 145°F.
