Do you ever have trouble with dry, tough pork chops? This simple recipe for Panko Crusted Pork Chops will guarantee you great tasting pork chops that are tender and juicy!
I use panko bread crumbs for adding an extra crisp coating to the pork chops. Cooking time on Panko Crusted Pork Chops can vary quite a bit depending on the thickness of your pork chops. For thin pork chops pan frying on the stove top should be all that is required. For thicker pork chops I usually pan fry until they are golden brown on the outside, then transfer to a 350º oven to complete cooking. One of the best kitchen tools I ever invested in was a digital meat thermometer. It takes the guess work out of cooking meat to correct temperature.
