  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Season pork chops with garlic powder and seasoned salt.
  3. Beat eggs in a bowl until smooth. Pour flour into a separate shallow bowl and bread crumbs into a third bowl.
  4. 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.
  5. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

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.
