My husband requested baked breaded pork chops. Well, I had never cooked pork chops that way, so I looked at quite a few recipes, combined ideas from several of them, and this is the result. My husband loved them and said that I should definitely make them again (and suggested that it would be a good recipe to use with chicken, also!) These pork chops are fairly easy to prepare and are so flavorful! We loved them.
