Mom Klik's Breaded Pork Chops #BakingBloggers

Bone in Pork Loin Chops, dredged in seasoned flour, an egg wash and bread crumbs and baked in a little liquid until fork tender.  This is a traditional Polish recipe that was a regular on my Mother in law's dinner table.

Breaded Pork Chops

These pork chops are one of Frank's comfort foods.  But it's not just the chops.  It's the whole meal.  These MUST be served with mashed potatoes and canned corn.  Any other accompaniments ruins the meal for him.  You can include other items if, like me, you are adverse to serving a bland plate and want to add color, but those 3 items are a firm requirement as far as Frank is concerned.

The chops are breaded and then fried before a long slow bake that leaves them fork tender.  Mom Klik always fried hers in shortening but I use a mixture of olive oil and butter.

When Frank and I got married nearly 30 years ago, his mom and sister, prepared all of the food for our reception.  These pork chops were one of the entrees and they were a big hit.

  1. We love breaded pork chops but I must admit that I make them rarely because I've always thought that one must fry food right before serving. Mom Klik's oven trick is a game changer!

    1. It leaves them so tender and delicious. They just melt in your mouth Stacy.

  2. wow, love these fried and then baked chop, fantastic recipe carried forward, thanks for sharing.

  3. I love heritage recipes and can't wait to try this version. And I love that you had this at your wedding...that makes it even more special.

  4. I smiled about the mashed potatoes and corn. It sounds like like the perfect comfort food meal. The chops looks gorgeous.

  5. Frank and my husband would really get along when it comes to side dishes. :) I've never fried a bone-in pork chop because I thought it would take too long and I'd over cook it. This fry and bake method is perfect!

    1. Frank is pretty good about sides but very set in his ways when it comes to certain meals.

  6. These sound so comforting and delicious - I love recipes like this that have so much family history and memories attached to them!

  7. A few weeks ago I made a plum cake from my Polish cookbook. The cookbook is Polish-American but it was a gift from a friend who lives in Warsaw, and visits here occasionally. It’s a great recipe!

    The pork chops sound delicious!

    be well... mae at

    1. Thanks Mae. I do have a couple of Polish Cookbooks but most of the recipes I make came from my mil.

  8. It just so happens I have some bone in chops in the freezer. I think I know what to do with them now. Thanks for the recipe.

  9. I'm intrigued by the oven method - feels much safer than frying which is what often puts me off breaded things!

  10. How fun that these were at your reception! Looks amazing with that breading. Such a wonderfully comforting meal.

  11. I do this with pounded out boneless chicken. Add white wine and lemon juice in oven pan.
    Cook 40 minutes at 350. Sooo good. Add extra chopped garlic.
