How to Keep Breaded Baked Pork Chops From Sticking to the Pan

by Jonae Fredericks

Whether you like your breaded pork chops extra-crispy or a little more delicate, the key to a successful dish is keeping the bread crumbs adhered to the meat and not your baking pan. While a non-stick pan does the trick, you may not always have one on hand. A few simple tweaks make even a non-stick baking pan slippery smooth, ensuring that the bread crumbs stick to your pork chops and not the foil.

Non-Stick Spray

Spray a baking pan with a thin coating of non-stick cooking spray.

Arrange a single layer of breaded pork chops on the baking pan.

Bake the breaded pork chops according to the recipe.

Take the baking pan out of the oven and gently slide a spatula under each breaded pork chop to remove them.

Non-Stick Foil

Line a baking pan with non-stick aluminum foil, smoothing it evenly over the cooking surface and sides of the pan.

Arrange the breaded pork chops in a single layer on the baking pan.

Bake the breaded pork chops according to your recipe.

Remove the baking tray from the oven and gently slide a spatula under each breaded pork chop, careful not to rip the foil while doing so.

Items you will need
  • Baking pan
  • Spatula

Tips

  • There is no need to saturate the baking pan with cooking spray. A thin, even layer is all that is necessary.
  • Lay the non-stick aluminum foil on the baking pan, dull side up. The dull side is non-stick, but the shiny side is not.
