"I usually prepare this recipe for 300 plus senior citizens where I work, but I've scaled it down for home use. The recipe is for freshly seasoned and breaded pork chops that come out nice and moist."

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. Place the flour in a bowl. Combine the eggs and milk in a separate bowl, mixing together well, and then place the bread crumbs in another separate bowl. To the bread crumbs stir in the lemon pepper, parsley, garlic powder, dill and Italian-style seasoning.
  3. Dip each chop into the flour, shaking off any excess flour, then dip into the egg/milk mixture, and, finally, dredge each chop liberally in the bread crumbs.
  4. Lay the chops into a lightly greased 9x13 inch baking dish and pour water as needed into the dish, enough to just cover the bottom.
  5. Bake for 40 minutes, then reduce heat to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 20 more minutes.

I've been making pork chops like this for years - my Grandma taught me. Tonight my husband asked if I could make them for dinner - I always use italian style bread crumbs and just eyeball extra seasonings like garlic powder, cracked black pepper, dried parsley and italian seasoning. I sometimes add a bit of rosemary and grated parmesan depending on the side dishes I plan to serve. I never use lemon pepper but tried the dill weed and thought it was pretty good. I always dip my pork chops into the egg/milk mixture then the seasoned bread crumbs and then repeat that procedure (double dipping). This gives the pork a thick breading and keeps it moist while baking. Spray the bottom of a glass baking dish with Pam, place the breaded pork in (no water needed) then spray the pork with a little Pam, cook at 350 for 20 minutes, turn and cook for another 25 minutes. They'll come out moist and tender.


I really liked the breading on this recipe. I made a few changes though. I browned the chops in a little oil before I place in a pan to finish baking in the oven. I was afraid they would not get crispy just being baked and worried about how soggy the water would make them. I scaled the recipe back to 2 and still had enough breading mix for at least four chops. It really makes way to much breading mixture. I didn't find the dill or Italian seasoning too strong. I however used plain rather than seasoned bread crumbs because that was all I had. I will make again for sure.


Smelled great while cooking. I had a lot of egg and flour mixture left over. Next time I will half both. I also browned before baking, which made a nice crispy crust. Thanks Jim!
