Baked Pork Chop
This simple preparation is perfect for a weeknight -- just shake and bake!
|1 1/2 cup||panko|
|5 tablespoons||vegetable oil|
|3 tablespoons||grated parmesan|
|2 teaspoons||dried italian seasoning|
|kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper|
|four 3/4-inch bone-in pork chops (about 2 1/4 pounds)|
|lemon wedges, for serving (optional)|
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Combine the panko, oil, Parmesan, Italian seasoning and 3/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large resealable plastic bag. Put the pork chops in a large bowl and toss to coat with 1 tablespoon water. Place the pork chops in the bag and shake well to coat, pressing the breadcrumb mixture firmly into the meat.
Place the pork chops on a wire rack set on a baking sheet and top evenly with any breadcrumbs remaining in the bag. Bake until the breadcrumbs are dark golden and the internal temperature of the chops registers 165 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer (avoid touching bone), about 30 minutes. Serve immediately with lemon wedges, if using.
