How to Bake Pork Chops to Perfection

Pork chops are often overlooked, but should be part of any healthy diet. They are low in fat and high in protein and are delicious when cooked properly. Porkchops can easily dry out if they are fried or grilled, but if you learn how to bake pork chops you can avoid this mishap. When you bake them you can avoid using additional fat that would normally be needed for other cooking methods.

When learning how to bake pork chops, the most fool proof method is to use some sort of coating mix. There are a number of ways you can coat the chops in order to keep the delicious juices locked in. You can make your own coating mix and avoid the high cost of the ready made mixes. When you do this you can control the ingredients and eliminate added sodium and preservatives.


When learning how to oven bake you will find you can make your coating mix with a number of things for your base. Don't be afraid to experiment. You can use croutons that have been crushed in a food processor or seasoned bread crumbs. Stuffing mix also works well. If needed add extra seasoning to suit you taste. After combining the crumbs and spices you choose, place the mixture into a large plastic bag.

Dip each porkchop in a mixture of egg and milk. Allow any excess to drip off before placing one pork chop at a time into the plastic bag. Shake the bag to thoroughly coat the pork chop before placing on a cookie sheet that has been sprayed with a cooking spray. Place the baking sheet in an oven that has been preheated to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Bake the porkchops for approximately 35 minutes, depending on the thickness.

You will know they are ready when they are golden brown in color. Remove the pan for the oven. Before serving, cover the baking pan loosely with foil, allowing them to rest for 3 to 5 minutes. For tender and juicy porkchops don't neglect this step.

Pork chops are delicious when served with rice and a green vegetable. A wild rice medley is particularly delicious with pork. You will be able to think of a variety of side dishes to round out this delicious entrée. Once you learn how to bake pork chops, you and your family will be enjoying delicious and nutritious meals that take little time to prepare.
