People constantly ask me how I am able to make dinner almost every night. I explain that dinner doesn’t have to be an overly complicated endeavor. Everything doesn’t have to be made from scratch and it’s perfectly fine to take some shortcuts in order to feed yourself or your family. One of my favorite short cut recipes are these Crispy Bbq Pork Chops. They are super easy to make, take very little time, make very little mess and they are absolutely delicious. The great thing about this recipe is that it produces a fried chop without the mess of having to fry. My shortcut in this recipe is using the box of Kraft Oven Fry. Oven Fry comes in many varieties and I use the Pork variety for these Crispy Bbq Pork Chops.

I have been in Northern Michigan for the last couple of weeks on my own. I wanted to make myself a nice dinner the other night and use up some of the veggies I had gotten from the local farmers market. I saw that my Mom had left some of her doctored up Bbq sauce in the fridge so I decided to make these chops. I ran up to the local store and they had some beautiful, bone in pork chops on sale. I bought the whole package, took out two for dinner and leftovers and froze the rest. Luckily the little grocery store on the corner also had my favorite Pork Oven Fry.

This stuff is magic!

The Oven Fry is perfect for pork or chicken. I use it often and the recipes always come out great. It produces the most crispy crust without having to deal with messy oil and all that splatter. I would also have to think that it is a little bit more healthy then frying food in oil. This is not a sponsored post, I just really love sharing products I love.

The other ingredients you will need for this recipe are:

  • 1 Egg
  • 1 C of Bbq Sauce

It is hard to believe that such a great dinner comes from literally using pork chops, oven fry, bbq sauce and an egg.

If you are cooking for more than one or two, a whole box of Oven Fry will be enough for four large, thick chops. If you need to make more than that I would recommend buying 2 boxes and using two eggs.

I bought a package of five, made two and froze the rest.

This recipe requires no special equipment the only thing you will  need are:

  • A bowl for the egg
  • A plate for the oven fry
  • A cookie sheet covered in foil and sprayed with non stick spray

I used very thick pork chops with the bone in. I cooked my chops according to the package directions on the Oven Fry. The size and thickness of your chops will make a difference in your cook time. Your oven will also make a difference. Every oven doesn’t cook the same. I recommend getting an inexpensive stick thermometer so you can temp your meat. With pork, I was taught by a Chef I know to take it out when it is about 5 to 10 degrees away from being done. Meat continues to cook after it is taken from the oven for about ten minutes and ten degrees. Most people wait until it is the done temp and then take it out and then the meat is overcooked. Your pork will be so much more tender and juicy when you take it out a few degrees from done and let it finish on top of the stove while the oven cools.

The steps for this recipe are so simple. The easiest way to prep this dinner is to get your cookie sheet prepped, whisk your egg in a bowl and add your Oven Fry to a paper plate and set up a breading station. Here are the steps:

  1. Dry your pork chops with a paper towel.
  2. Dip your chop in the egg and coat the chop on all sides with the egg.
  3. Press the chop into the Oven Fry and make sure you get all the edges and both sides covered.
  4. Place the chop on the cookie sheet.
  5. Repeat the process until al your chops are coated.
  6. Place in your preheated oven and cook according to package directions.
  7. I flipped my chops halfway through cooking, you do not have to do this.
    1. Be careful if you flip so you don’t leave the breading on the pan.
  8. When the chops are just about done, drizzle the tops with the Bbq sauce and spread the sauce across the chop with the back of a spoon.
  9. Place your chops back in the oven and bake until the sauce is baked onto the chop.

That is all there is to making these delicious Crispy Bbq Pork Chops. I served these chops with some buttered baby red potatoes and a side salad. It is an easy weeknight dinner but also special enough for a Sunday supper. If you are cooing for yourself, I am happy to report that these chops reheat really well in the oven or toaster oven. They retain their crispiness really well. If you want to buy boneless pork chops these crispy bbq pork chops also make a great sandwich.

These chops aren’t only for bbq sauce. You can add any kind of sauce to the top to make them extra special.  I have used:

  • Honey Mustard
  • Hot Honey
  • Honey & Hot Sauce
  • Ranch Dressing

You should definitely make these and do a little experimenting with different sauces or even just make them plain!

I love the Bbq Sauce my mom makes and it is very simple. She simply take original Open Pit Bbq Sauce and adds:

  • Oregano
  • Garlic Powder
  • Onion Powder
  • Soy Sauce
  • Worcestershire Sauce
  • Parsley
  • Brown Sugar

Mix it all up and you have a fantastic upgraded sauce. Sometimes I even add a little honey and or mustard to it! Be careful, it is addicting.
