Busy-Day Pork Chops

It was time to use or lose some pork chops I had in the fridge, so I dressed them in bread crumbs and Parmesan and baked them up. Necessity sure is the mother of invention, and in this case I invented an amazing healthy pork chop recipe. —Dee Maltby, Wayne, Ohio

    Easy, quick and good. The only change I made was to omit the salt. My son seems to like the recipe a lot. This was a Saturday night meal, but he also ate it for Sunday breakfast, and today (Monday) he packed it for his lunch. I guess that verifies the success of this recipe, for me anyway.

    Quick, easy and healthy. My picky husband really liked them, reminded him of breaded pork chops from years ago that weren't as healthy. I always buy boneless chops in bulk when they go on sale and this will be a nice alternative since I usually slow cook or instant pot them to keep them moist. It's also a great addition to my low carb list!

    This recipe was amazing! I usually fry my pork chops, but when I found this recipe I had to try it since I would rather bake than fry any day. The pork chops turned out perfectly seasoned and very moist.

    Very tender. Crust got crisp and was very tasty. A good alternative to fried pork chops. I will make these again.
