Many little tricks ensure that this pork chop recipe is the perfect weeknight meal. From properly seasoning the breadcrumbs, browning the chops on the stove first to create a crispy crust, and then finishing them in the oven to keep them moist and juicy.

Be sure to choose pork chops that are center cut and at least 1-inch thick, as thinner chops will require less cooking time and can easily dry out. You’ll know the chops are ready when a meat thermometer inserted in the center reads 145 F. Don’t skip the step of reading internal temperature as this is the only real way to ensure you haven’t under- or over-cooked your chops.

These pork chops are delicious served with scalloped or mashed potatoes, a chopped salad, roasted carrots, or baked mac and cheese.

“Breaded anything works well in my family and these pork chops are no exception. Roast a vegetable alongside them in the oven and you have a great weeknight meal in under 30 minutes. Be sure to check the temperature of the chops after 10 minutes so they don’t overcook.” —Carrie Parente
