How To Make Shake And Bake Pork Shops
Step 1: Combine bread crumbs and other dry ingredients in a gallon size storage bag. Add olive oil and shake well.
Note: If you don’t have freezer bags, you can make this homemade crumb mixture in a large bowl instead (you just won’t be able to do the shaking).
Step 2: Close the top of the plastic bag, then shake the ingredients to mix them together.
Step 3: Add pork chops to the bread crumb mixture one at a time. Shake until completely covered.
Step 4: Place the pork chops on an ungreased baking sheet. You can also line it with aluminum foil for easy cleanup.
Step 5: Cook for 20 minutes, turning halfway through. You’ll know your chops are ready when a meat thermometer reads 145° and your pork chops are a golden brown.
My family absolutely loves this delicious pork chop dinner! I can’t blame them because these shake n bake pork chops turned out SO awesome! It’s the perfect dinner for when I want to make a real dinner (as in, no frozen pizza) but don’t have a ton of time.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long do you cook shake and bake pork chops
Because pork chops can vary so much (thick vs. thin, bone in vs. boneless, etc), your cooking times may vary. For this recipe, I cooked medium, bone in pork chops and took about 20 minutes total. I never wing it when it comes to meat though and swear by my meat thermometer. When pork chops reach an internal temperature of 145°, you’re good to go.
Do you flip shake and bake pork chops
Yes, you’ll get the best results if you flip the pork chops about halfway through. Otherwise the breading on top may be a little dry. Flipping the pork allows the juices to flow on both sides.

If you don't have olive oil, canola oil or vegetable oil makes a great alternative.
Though I prefer to make this pork chop recipe with regular bread crumbs, I've substituted panko bread crumbs in a pinch.
This seasoning mix also tastes great with boneless pork chops and pork cutlets. You can even use it with boneless chicken. You'll just have to adjust the cooking time and use your instant read thermometer to determine when your pork chops are done.
