Baked Parmesan Pork Chops are tender and delicious with a crispy outside crust. These are a family favorite at dinner time!

Baked Parmesan Pork Chops are tender, seasoned pork chops with a crispy outside crust. Life-in-the-Lofthouse.comI’ve tried pork chops a bunch of different ways. I love them fried and smothered (oh yes!), but when I’m leaning on a more healthy version it’s these Baked Parmesan Pork Chops I always come back to. I’ve been making these pork chops as long as I’ve been making our favorite Ranch Chicken. They’re both very similar and totally delicious!

What I love most about this recipe, is that it’s incredibly simple with incredible flavor. When I cut these up into bite-sized pieces, my kids gobble these up. It’s a family-dinner win for everyone! 🙂

  1. Have you tried it with the plain panko crumbs? I already have some of those in the house. Just wondered if I could just add some seasoning. Thanks. Looks delicious.

    1. Kathy, you can definitely use plain panko bread crumbs. The pork chops will be missing the flavor from the Italian-seasoned crumbs, so adding some seasoning would be ideal 🙂

  2. Just made this tonight (though subbed chicken for the pork chops because that’s what I had on hand, and added some Wildtree Rancher Steak Rub into the panko and Parmesan mixture, since my panko crumbs were plain) – FABULOUS! Two thumbs up all around the table! This recipe is definitely going into our regular rotation, and now I can’t wait to try the Ranch Chicken, too…
