Here are some different ways of cooking pork chops with Shake and Bake:

  • Baked Pork Chops: Baking your pork chops in the oven is one of the most popular cooking methods. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Place seasoned pork chops on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or aluminum foil. Drizzle olive oil over them before the shake and bake part. Bake for 20-25 minutes until they reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit (63 degrees Celsius). Serve immediately with your favorite side dishes!

Heat a tablespoon of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until it shimmers but does not smoke. Fry each side for about 4-5 minutes or until golden brown before turning over and repeating on the other side. Once cooked through, remove from heat and serve hot!

  • Grilled Pork Chops: Grilling is another great way to get those delicious flavors into your pork chop without using too much oil or butter. Preheat your grill to medium-high heat before lightly brushing each side of your seasoned pork chop with olive oil or butter before covering it in shake and baking, coating evenly on both sides. Grill each side for about 4-5 minutes or until cooked through (145 degrees Fahrenheit/63 degrees Celsius) before flipping over and repeating on the other side if needed. Serve hot off the grill!
  • Air Fried Pork Chops: Air frying is becoming increasingly popular as it allows you to cook food without using oil! Preheat your air fryer. Place into air fryer basket, ensuring enough space between each piece, so they do not touch. At the same time, cook then set the timer for around 8 minutes before flipping halfway through cooking time if needed for even browning throughout all sides of the meat. Once cooked through (145 degrees Fahrenheit/63 degrees Celsius), carefully remove from the air fryer basket using tongs or gloves as needed, then serve hot!
