Instructions Checklist

  • Season pork chops with garlic powder and seasoned salt.

  • Beat eggs in a bowl until smooth. Pour flour into a separate shallow bowl and bread crumbs into a third bowl.

  • Gently press seasoned pork chops into the flour to coat and shake to remove excess flour. Dip into the beaten egg, then press into bread crumbs. Gently toss between your hands so any bread crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away. Place the breaded chops onto a plate while breading the rest; do not stack.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.

  • Cook pork chops in hot oil until the bread crumb coating is well browned, about 5 minutes per side; transfer to a baking dish. Cover baking dish with aluminum foil.

  • Bake chops in preheated oven for 1 hour. Whisk cream of chicken soup, milk, and pesto together in a bowl; pour over the pork chops. Replace foil and continue baking another 30 minutes.

So good! Instead of frying the chops before baking, I broiled them for 2 minutes on each side (I sprayed them with olive oil to get some crunch) then baked as recipe directed. I'd make this again and again Read More

Great dish and my kids loved it! I had to substitute with soy milk, and used crushed cornflakes instead of the italian-style breadcrumbs. Came out delicious! Will try the breadcrumbs next time, and adding this to our favorite family meals! Read More

This is a great base recipe. My changes were...a lot more garlic and onion. Also seasoned chops with basil, oregano and rosemary and let them just sit and soak up all those great spices. They turned out awesome !! Very moist and flavorful. My boyfriend loved it and so did my picky nephew that never eats any real food. Also made garlic sautéed green beans and baked potato. Yum will definitely make again. Read More

Definitely not a lack of flavor here. 2-3 minutes of frying on each side was enough did the entire 5 on some and it was more than enough. The pesto was an awesome touch worked out well. My kids raved over them. Read More

Great pork chops. Everyone loved them. Don't need to change a thing. Just watch them while they fry because 2-3 minutes was plenty. I used pork loin chops. Read More

We loved it! I never would have thought to use pesto with the soup. I think the next time I will use boneless pork chops but the bone-in worked great. Read More

I thought this was a great pork chop recipe. I notoriously have a hard time getting my pork chops to come out tender and not tough and dry. This recipe did the trick. I cooked 2 bone in chops that were about an inch think for 30 then 30. The chops were flavorful and tender. I served with white rice and sautéed yellow squash. Read More
