Parm-Breaded Pork Chops

Parmesan, the king of Italian cheeses, brings a buttery and sweet, nutty essence to the coating for breaded pork loin chops. Mixed with butter-flavored crackers, it brings optimal flavor and tenderness to these baked chops. —Melanie Hogan, Birmingham, Alabama

    These pork chops were so easy to make, and delicious! They were moist, flavorful, and cooked to perfection. I followed the recipe as written, except I melted the butter right in the baking dish, and omitted the added salt as I felt the crackers, Parmesan cheese, and salted butter would be salty enough. I also turned the pork chops over half way through baking for even browning on both sides. Will definitely make again! VFE

    Very moist pork chops with great flavor. Replaced salt with Penzeys Justice. Otherwise wouldn't change a thing!

    Excellent! Didn't change anything but used the Ritz Garlic Butter crackers because that is what I had. It was super! It is the new 'pork chop recipe' for my house! They came out so juicy. The bottom was slightly browned so I flipped them over to serve and they were beautiful! I am wondering if I could turn them over half way and maybe have them brown on both sides? No matter, I will continue to use!

    Tasted Awesome, I had thick cut pork chops needed about another 10 minutes in oven, than broiled for a few minutes to give a little crispyness on top. I would definetely make again !

    I did not like the soggy on the bottom and will be adding more parm next time and maybe flipping and broiling. My pork did not cook in the 30 minutes but over all, a good start to a recipe I can tweek!

    I didn't find this as good as the other reviewers. I baked mine for 30 mins so the pork was done, but the bottom crust was soggy because of the butter. I, too, did not taste much of the parmesan. It was very bland. Will not be making this again.
