Italian Style Pork Chops

Italian Style Pork Chops


"When I make these chops, I always have to make extra. Everyone has to eat more than they need. Great with a salad. The chops are baked in a crispy, buttery coating in the oven."

I love pork chops so I make them once a week for my family.(they like them, too) No matter what I bread them with- crackers, bread crumbs-the secret is buying thin,lean pork chops and cooking them in a 400-425 oven for 15-20 minutes. I spray the pan with cooking spray and turn the chops after 10 min. They come out brown on the outside and juicy in the inside. I hope this information is helpful. Thanks for sharing your recipe.


I read the other reviews and it seems like the only negative remarks were that the coating did not stick well and that the chops are too rich. With this in mind (and always thinking of the fat and calories!) I used just 1/2 cup of melted margarine mixed with 3/4 cup of buttermilk. The chops were just wonderful. I did have some coating left but only about a cup so I think the buttermilk makes the coating stick better. Other than that I followed the recipe exactly. The chops were very moist and very tasty. I would not hesitate to seve this to guests. Thanks Marilyn for sharing this Great recipe.


I eyeball a lot of ingredients when cooking and this recipe was no exception. I had a package of 6 pretty thin boneless pork chops and decided that 3 cups of saltines and two cups of cheese was way too much! I crushed up one package of crackers and used about a half cup of parmesan cheese. This still ended up to be too much but not by much. I'm always trying to reduce the fat and calories in my meals so I used a half cup of margarine instead of one of butter. I also found that after dipping the chops and coating them in the cracker mixture, that pushing the mix into the chops really helped to make it stick well. I have a gas stove that I'm still learning about (we just moved in) and it took 19 minutes at 400 degrees for them to cook through. I flipped them at ten minutes (as per another reviewer) and they were moist and very flavorful--not dry at all! My husband and I were very happy...Superb!
