Reviews for Zippy Breaded Pork Chops
"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."
"definitely a do-it-againer. Quick and easy for a week night meal. I used Panko crumbs. I like the idea of brushing the ranch on versus dipping."
"It was ok."
"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."
"Make crumbs using boxed stuffing for a "stuffed pork chop" flavor without the stuffing."
"Easy, tasty and I'll definitely make again!"
"Some reviews said these were bland. I added salt and a pretty good bit of pepper and they tasted fine to me. It was a good change from fried. I served with green beans and my roasted ranch potato salad."
"This was just a quick, easy recipe to make for pork chops. I was fiending for pork chops so I made this. It was not spectacular, but it did what it was supposed to do: It fed my family. I'll probably use the recipe again."
