Spiced Crunchy Pork Chops
Boring chops can make weeknight dinners a drag. We set out to create an easy recipe for juicy chops with serious punch—and crunch.
Why This Recipe Works
We were after what that box of Shake 'n Bake in the grocery store promises: a crunchy coating for pork chops that doesn't fall off or sog out while cooking. We found that a standard breading procedure, which consists of a flour dredge, a dip in beaten eggs, and then a dunk in a seasoned bread-crumb mixture, gave us exactly what we wanted. We briefly cooked the chops in some oil and then finished them with a spritz of lemon for acidity.
