Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 4 large bone-in center-cut rib pork chops (about ¾-1-inch thick) see NOTES
  • ½ cup flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • ¼ tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbs water
  • Coating:
  • 1 sleeve Ritz-style crackers
  • 3 tbs melted butter
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet.
  2. Using your hands or a food processor, process the crackers into coarse crumbs.
  3. Mix the crumbs with the melted butter in a bowl. You might want to transfer the crumbs to a plate to make coating easier.
  4. Mix the flour, salt & pepper. Again, you may want to transfer this to a plate for easier dredging. (See NOTES for what I use for easier cleanup).
  5. Whisk egg with the 1 tbs water in a bowl.
  6. Dredge chops in flour, then dip in the egg mixture, making sure chop is coated with egg--let excess egg drain.
  7. Next dredge in buttered crumbs and place chops on prepared baking sheet.
  8. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until chops register 170 degrees F on a meat thermometer.
Notes
Any cut of pork chop can be substituted. I just prefer center-cut bone-in chops because they have the most flavor IMO

I use paper plates (the better kind that have higher sides) to do dredging and coating.
