Oven Fried Ranch Pork Chops


Oven Fried Ranch Pork Chops

Have you ever had one of those nights that you just DIDN'T feel like cooking what you had planned?  Better yet, have you ever had a night where you just didn't feel like cooking at all? 
 OF COURSE YOU HAVE! 
So have I. 
In fact, tonight was one such night, but we had to eat, so I scratched what I had on my menu (It was Chicken Cordon Bleu, incase you were curious) and decided to just throw something together. 
You will never guess what happened. 
CULINARY MAGIC, THAT IS WHAT! 
By using some basic technique, and a mish mash of ingredients, I came up with the most delicious

OVEN FRIED RANCH PORK CHOPS

You and your family are going to love them, and I can't wait to share with you how I did it! 

Let's get started!

Oven Fried Ranch Pork Chops:
*Prep Time: 20 min.  *Cook Time:  20 min.  *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings: 4 chops

Ingredients:


  • 4 boneless loin chops
  • 1 c. ranch dressing
  • 1 c. of bread crumbs
  • 1/2 c. grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 tbsp. of butter
  • 1 tbsp. All Purpose Seasoning
Tools:
  • Measuring cups
  • Measuring spoons
  • Ziploc bag 
  • Baking dish

To prepare your chops, place them in a Ziploc bag and sprinkle with


Next, add the ranch dressing.


Press all of the air out of the bag, zip it up, and
"zchooze" (yes, that is a highly technical term)
 it around until all of your chops are well coated.


Place in the fridge to marinate for 20 minutes.

While the pork chops are marinating, Pre heat your oven to
450 degrees.
As the oven is heating, place your baking dish in the oven to heat along with it.


Now it is time to mix your breading.
Just combine, in a shallow dish, and mix together.


After 20 min., remove the chops from the Ziploc bag and place in breading.


Turn, and make sure they are thoroughly coated.


Now remove the HOT dish from the oven and add the butter. 
Allow the butter to melt.


Place the pork chops in the dish, and put them in the oven.
Bake for 10 minutes.


Then, remove from the oven, flip the chops,...


And place back in the oven for 20 more minutes.


Serve this with your favorite side, I chose roasted root vegetables because I can cook them in the oven simultaneously, and ENJOY!

This meal is simple, uses things you most likely have on hand, and your family will be singing your praises!

Give it a try tonight!

And as always,
