You can use this homemade shake and bake mixture for many types of proteins. Feel free to switch out the boneless pork chops for bone-in pork chops, but be sure to check the internal temperature because they may take a little longer to cook through.

How to make shake and bake pork chops
Step 1: Preheat oven and prepare the seasoning mixture
To begin, preheat the oven to 425F. Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray.
Now it is time to make the seasoning mixture. In a mixing bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt, garlic powder, onion powder, dried parsley, black pepper, and smoked paprika.
Step 2: time to shake
Then, pour the seasoning and bread crumbs into a large plastic bag. Add olive oil into the bag, seal, and shake until the olive oil is evenly distributed with the bread crumbs.
Then, place the pork chops into the bag, seal, and shake again. You will want to shake vigorously until the pork chops are all coated in the breading.
Step 2: place on a sheet pan and bake
Next, place the coated pork chops on the baking sheet. Bake at 425F for 18 minutes until they reach an internal temperature of 145F. Be careful not to overbake the pork chops so that they remain tender and juicy.
Remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly. Time to enjoy!
tips and tricks
To make juicy pork chops that remain crispy on the outside, transfer them to a wire rack after cooking to cool slightly. When you do this, you prevent the bottom from getting soggy.
Cook the pork chops directly on a greased baking sheet. The direct contact with the metal baking sheet will give the pork chops the best crust.
Storage and reheating
Allow the shake & bake pork chops to cool completely and then transfer to an airtight container in the fridge. Store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
Reheat leftovers either in the oven or air fry until just warmed through. I find that using the air fryer basket to reheat the pork chops is the best way to have leftovers that are not soggy.
