This is a recipe from my sweet Cally girl..Love you baby! Straight from her  mouth to your ears…enjoy!

I don’t measure my stuff. I just throw it in a bowl and do it.. here is what I do.

What you’ll need:

Pork chops (the thicker, the better)

Plain Bread crumbs

Eggs

Soy sauce

Garlic salt

Pam butter flavored non-stick spray (or the off brand equivelent, *butter flavored*)

Parsley flakes

Italian seasoning

Black pepper

Crushed red pepper – ( A TINY BIT )

Oven safe pyrex dish (square or rectangular)

First, Put your eggs and soy sauce in a bowl (I prefer something with a lid) with some garlic salt.

Shake or beat so everything is mixed.

Put your pork chops in the egg wash, and shake up again (if you use a bowl with a lid, you can always let the chops “marinade” in the egg wash for a couple of hours, but this is not mandatory).

Preheat the over to 375 degrees.

Next, put your bread crumbs in a bowl. Mix in garlic salt, parsley flakes, Italian seasoning, black pepper and a TINY bit of crushed red pepper. Run a fork through it until mixed throughly.

Now, spray the pyrex dish with the butter spray, giving it a nice thick coat. (We don’t want these to stick, and it makes the chops juicier.)

Take your chops one at a time out of the soy sauce egg wash, and dip them in the bread crumbs, so they are covered, and as you finish, one chop at a time, place them side by side in your pyrex dish.

Next, spray a nice layer over the tops of the chops with the butter flavored spray.

Stick them in the already preheated oven. When one side is a nice crispy brown (see pic for example) flip them over using a pair of tongs, and cook the other side to the equivelent brown crispyness. (You can also check the internal temp of the chop if you are more comfortable with that- internal temp should be NO LESS than 180 degrees.)

Take out of the oven, and enjoy with some veggies or whatever you normally eat with your porkchops! 🙂
