Shake and Bake Pork Chop Ingredients.
- Pork chops. You can use either boneless or bone-in pork chops! I recommend 1" thick pork chops, or no thinner than ½" thick pork chops. If you use ½" thick pork chops, you can reduce the cooking time by about 5 minutes.
- Bread crumbs. Plain bread crumbs - not panko!
- Spices. Salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika powder, sugar, basil, parsley, oregano, cayenne pepper.
- Oil. I recommend either vegetable oil or canola oil. The oil is mixed with the bread crumbs and spices to help them stick to the pork chops and make the breading nice and crispy.

Frequently Asked Questions.
How do you make shake and bake pork chops not soggy?
As pork chops cook, they release juices, which can cause the breading on underside of pork chop to get a little soggy. Here are a few tips to avoid soggy pork chops!
- Sheet pan: If you cook the pork chops on a sheet pan, transfer the pork chops to a clean plate as soon as they are done. The sheet pan holds the juices from the pork chops, so getting the pork chops to a dry, clean plate will help to prevent soggy pork chops.
- Wire rack: Bake pork chops on a wire rack over a sheet pan. This will ensure that both sides of the pork chops get crispy, as the pork chops won't be laying directly on the sheet pan in the juices.
- Broiler pan: Bake pork chops on a broiler pan. This is essentially the same as baking the pork chops on a wire rack. The slits in the top of the broiler pan allows the juices from the pork chops to run through to the catch tray.
How do you make shake and bake pork chops crispy?
The shake and bake breading is made with oil to help make the beading crispy! This results in a nice golden brown exterior.
If you want extra crispy breading, I suggest broiling the pork chops for 1-2 minutes on each side once they finish cooking.
How long does it take to cook pork chops at 425°F?
At 425°F, 1 inch thick pork chops take about 20-25 minutes to bake in the oven. The internal temperature of a pork chop should be 145-160°F for safe consumption. I recommend using a meat thermometer to prevent over or under baking the pork chops.
How can you tell if pork chops are done cooking?
Using a meat thermometer is the best way to tell if a pork chop is done. The internal of a pork chop should be 145-160°F for safe consumption. For pork chops, an internal temperature of 145°F is medium-rare and 160°F is medium-well.
Alternatively, if you don't have a meat thermometer, you can cut into the center of the pork chop to check the color. The pork chop is fully cooked when the meat is white. If the meat is pink or bloody, it is not done and needs to cook longer.
Do you flip shake and bake pork chops?
You do not need to flip shake and bake pork chops, but I feel that flipping the pork chops helps to crisp up both sides. So, I like to flip them halfway through the cook time.
However, flipping or not flipping, either way the pork chops will cook in the same amount of time.
