These traditional pork chops have a wonderful home-cooked flavor like the ones Mom used to make. The breading makes them crispy outside and tender and juicy inside. Why not treat your family to them tonight? —Deborah Amrine, Grand Haven, Michigan

"This is how my mom taught me to make them - it's the ultimate comfort food to me. Now I make them for my own family and they love them just as much as I did."

"I love these! They are so quick and easy to make. Like some of the other people suggested, I mixed Italian seasoning in the crackers and it turned out AMAZING. I'm a beginner cook and I've never fried meat before, so they burnt a tiny bit. But I will definitely make these again and keep trying to find the right temp and length of time to cook these! Plus my boyfriend and I still loved them, so it all worked out. Paired these with some baked potatoes and had an easy meal."

"I used to make pork chops like this all the time except add pepper. Instead of saltine crackers, I like to use Club crackers. Saltines are OK but a little boring. quick & good!"

"Ritz crackers was only available at the spur of the moment which turned out to be one awesome dinner. I added a tablespoon of no msg Johnnys seasoning, two tablespoons of whole wheat flour and fresh ground black pepper. This was cooked in canola oil for a little nutty favor that set off the chops perfectly!!"

"Would not recommend, followed the recipe to a T, however the flavor was extremely lacking, confused as to why this recipe is rated so highly"
