Controlling preservatives and artificial ingredients are important to so many people. Why not easily knock out extra ingredients that you don’t need to prepare your dinner for your family?

Preparing copycat Shake ‘N’ Bake
When preparing the homemade breading, I find the largest difference between breadcrumbs from a can, and the mix from Shake ‘N’ Bake is that the packaged mix has finer ground breadcrumbs. If you want a more exact mix, I suggest you mix the breading in a food processor to emulate the packaged mix. But mixing everything in a bowl will work just fine. You may even want to make fresh breadcrumbs before preparing this recipe.
How to make crispy pork chops in the oven
Oven-fried pork chops need to be cooked at a higher temperature, 425 degrees is recommended. I like to use pork chops that are bone-in for better flavor, but pork loin chops will also work just fine. I like to use chops that are about 3/8-inch, if your pork chops are thicker, or thinner, you will need to adjust the time. It is important if the chops are thicker, that you reduce the temperature to around 400 and cook for 5 to 10 minutes longer. It is important to check and make sure pork is cooked to 145-155 degrees.
How do you cook Shake ‘N’ Bake Pork chops?
This recipe is super easy to cook. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Then you are going to pour some cooking oil on the bottom of a baking sheet, and then you will place the breaded pork chops on the cooking sheet, and then halfway through the time, you will flip over the pork chops so the other side browns evenly.
