  • 4 large bone-in center-cut rib pork chops about 3/4-1-inch thick see NOTES
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tbsp water


  • 1 sleeve Ritz-style crackers
  • 3 tbsp melted butter


  • Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly spray a large baking sheet.
  • Using your hands or a food processor, process the crackers into coarse crumbs.
  • Mix the crumbs with the melted butter in a bowl. You might want to transfer the crumbs to a plate to make coating easier.
  • 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).
  • Whisk egg with the 1 tbs water in a bowl.
  • Dredge chops in flour, then dip in the egg mixture, making sure chop is coated with egg--let excess egg drain.
  • Next dredge in buttered crumbs and place chops on prepared baking sheet.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until chops register 170 degrees F on a meat thermometer.


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.
