I had a great pork chop that had been lurking in the freezer for well over a year and needed eating. Instead of grilling it fully loaded or deep fried it, I decided to bread and bake it.

You will need

  • Pork chop
  • Panko crumbs
  • Chilli powder
  • Paprika
  • Onion powder


  1. Cut pork chop off the bone. Mine came away in a few pieces
  2. Mix spices and crumbs
  3. Flatten the pork. I used a tin of beans.
  4. Coat the pork in the mix. Push and rub it in. I think I could have combined flattening the meat and coating at the same time
  5. Bake at 180 until crisp. Flip over part way
  6. Stuff into a pita with salad and hot sauce, if so desired


Because pork is a fatty meat the fat leaks out and helps fry the outside. They’re crunhcy and tasty, through could have been a bit dry if not soaked in hot sauce.

I trimmed off the fat and baked it at the same time because I love pork scratchings.
