"I brushed on a light coating of ranch as suggested and baked at 425 for 15 minutes then 450 for another 10 minutes; the chops were cooked perfectly, but the breadcrumbs still a bit mushy on top, but the flavor was great. I'd definitely make these again-super simple and quick"

"These were very simple to make. I don't usually buy pork chops but had some in the freezer, after thawing them out, I wasn't sure what to do with them. After looking on Taste of Home, I found this quick and easy recipe. My husband was a fan, I liked them but didn't love them. I don't have a wire rack so they were a little soggy. Next time I'd maybe try just cooking them in a frying pan."

"I used OPA ranch dressing and breadcrumbs from my homemade einkorn bread. I added about 1/4 to 1/3 cup dry roasted macadamia nut pieces to the crumbs. I was careful to not let the dressing coat the chops too thickly, given the other reviews. Left out the Parmesan. I had boneless pork loin chops so that's what I used. They were delicious!"

"I wish I had read all the reviews first! Using a basting brush to apply the dressing is probably a good idea. I followed the directions exactly, right down to the wire rack with the recommended size pan, 425 degrees but the breading was soggy. It took extra time under the broiler to crisp them up properly. I might consider this recipe again in about 20 years after my husband forgets about it."

"Yummers. Made these before w dijon and mayo blend (50/50) instead of ranch dressing. Sandyho start with raw chops -coat them with all ingredients and bake in oven just like recipe states and browning will occur with baking. No need to use stovetop at all. I turn my oven to 450 degrees last 5 mins or you can also put broiler on for 1-2 mins to brown crispy. Beautifully tender."

crumbs, which had the cheese in it. These were fantastic, but, next time, I think I will raise
the temperature to 425 because the breading was not crispy enough-kind of gummy. This
recipe, though, is a definite keeper. YUM!!!!!"

"Excellent flavor, but the directions should specify that the chops should get just the thinnest coating of ranch dressing. Next time I'll brush it on with a basting brush. I'd also go with a larger pan. I fixed five pork chops of about the size specified in the recipe, and they were pretty crowded in a 9"x13" pan."
