Oven-Fried Pork Chop Recipe

Holle loves to cook. BBQ and BBQ sauce is something she and others in the Deep South take seriously.

These oven-baked pork chops taste amazingly like fried ones.

These oven-baked pork chops taste amazingly like fried ones.


  • 4 – 6 pork chops, about ½-inch thick
  • Lawry’s garlic salt
  • Black pepper
  • Ground red pepper
  • Flour – plain or self-rising
  • ½ stick butter, melted
  • Cooking spray


  • Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and line a shallow baking pan with foil.
  • Rinse pork chops and shake to dry. You want to leave just a little dampness on the chops.
  • Sprinkle the chops on both sides with garlic salt, black pepper, and red pepper. Rub the seasonings into the meat, then shake the seasoned chops in flour. Set them on a plate to rest.
  • Pour the melted butter in the baking pan and tilt the pan to make sure the entire cooking surface is coated.
  • Shake the pork chops in the flour again. Arrange the chops in the baking pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  • Remove pan from oven and spray the upturned side of the chops with baking spray.
  • Turn chops over and continue to bake for about 20 more minutes, or until meat is no longer pink.

I made some great oven fried pork chops tonight!

We were having guests for dinner, so I was cooking twelve of them. I wanted to fry them, but they were big, and I didn’t want to have to stand over my skillet forever.

I decided to fry some of the chops in the traditional way and fry the rest of them in the oven. I was very surprised to discover that the oven-fried ones were actually better than the ones I made traditionally. They were super tender and juicy, with a wonderful flavor. I may never fry pork chops again!

I’ve used Bisquick for this recipe before, but I think I like the flour better. Tonight, I used self-rising flour on the chops, but I’ve also used all-purpose flour before, too, and I really can’t tell much difference.

You might want to adjust the seasonings by adding, subtracting, or substituting. Other herbs and spices you might want to try include:

  • Onion powder
  • Garlic powder
  • Paprika
  • White pepper
  • Rosemary
  • Seasoned salt
  • Chili powder
  • Chipotle powder

Dousing the pork chops with hot sauce before coating them in flour is also tasty.

One more thing: I used regular aluminum foil for lining the pan, and one of the chops wanted to stick to the foil. I think next time I’ll use quick-release foil.
