Oven Fried Pork Chops

This recipe is as old as the hills. Some people will scoff at using mayonnaise, but it really helps to keep the pork moist and tender. This is also a recipe that I think you have to be willing to get a little messy in the kitchen. I've never been able to do the "wet hand, dry hand" method of breading, and believe me, when you've worked in a kitchen frying chicken by the 5 gallon bucket loads... you'll try every method available... So get in there and get your hands dirty! :-)

Served here with Greek Potatoes

6 Pork Chops

Wet Mixture:
1 cup mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
salt & pepper, to taste

Dry Mixture:
1 1/2 cups bread crumbs
1/2 cup Flour
1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp onion powder
Salt & Pepper, to taste

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a baking pan or large casserole dish with oil. In a flat dish, 
whisk together mayo and seasonings. In a separate dish, combine bread crumbs, flour and seasonings. Coat the pork chops with the mayonnaise mixture (I actually used my fingers), and then coat with the bread crumb mixture. Place on a cookie sheet and bake pork chops for 30 minutes (or until golden brown and crispy), turning and pouring off excess oil once during cooking.


  1. My oven is not working. Can these be made on the stovetop or slow cooker? I can't wait to try your recipe. Thank you for all your wonderful recipes! Looking forward to your response

  2. Maybe a toaster oven... but no on the slow cooker. You won't get the "fried" texture. On the stove top, you have to fry them. That's the entire point of the oven... not frying them in oil.

  3. Have you done these with bone-in chops? Recipe looks so flavourful and the only chops on hand have the bone.

    1. The ones in the picture were bone in, so yes you can! I usually buy boneless, but the hubby went shopping and bought these. I have nothing against the bone in, but with little ones eating, pork chops can have those little slivers of bone. If you miss one, it can be a choking hazard. Thanks for asking! :-)

  4. Eeegads!! I love this recipe for pork chops!! We love bone in and I'm surely gonna try your recipe, luveee!! xo

  5. Lynn, do you thing it is doable with lamb instead of pork? I so much love the technique of coating the dish with mayo and spices before drenching with bread crumbs! Love your family recipes!

  6. Pork chops have always meant comfort food to me!! Love them!

  7. This all sounds divine! SO,so good!

  8. This is very similar to how I make pork chops in the oven!

  9. Delicious!! I will be making this recipe again. Delicious and easy enough for a week night meal :) Thanks for sharing this with us Lynn!

  10. Very delicious way to prepare pork chops loved it and will prepare again.
