Simple, nourishing, and easy family dinners are my my favorite types of recipes to create and share.
If I can put a nutritious meal on the table without spending a ton of time in the kitchen, and my whole family actually eats it and even loves it, then I feel like an Iron Chef.
Chicken is often our go-to protein for dinner, but I wanted to add a quick and easy baked pork chop recipe to our rotation.
These easy, yummy panko pork chops can be whipped up any night of the week in 30 minutes or less.
The ingredients that you need for these breaded baked pork chops are likely already in your pantry. The panko topping is made by combining panko breadcrumbs with some herbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper.
The only other things you’ll need are some dijon mustard and some olive oil.
What is in Poultry Seasoning?
I used poultry seasoning in this recipe, which is a combination of dried basil, rosemary, sage, marjoram, thyme and oregano.
If you don’t have poultry seasoning on hand, you can easily swap in any combination of these herbs, or even just one of them, and it will still turn out great! There are also some great recipes for homemade poultry seasoning online.
To make the topping, you simply combine the breadcrumbs and seasonings in a bowl, and then give the mixture a quick saute in olive oil to bring out the flavors of the herbs and the crunch of the panko.
When the breadcrumbs have started to turn golden-brown, you place the pork chops on a baking sheet, spread dijon mustard on top of each pork chop, and then top the chops with the breadcrumb mixture.
Bake for about 20 minutes at 375, and you’ve got a delicious dinner on your hands that seems like it required WAY more effort than it actually did.
