We love pork for breakfast in our house and it’s just as big of a hit at dinner time! 

I honestly think that Chad could survive on pork alone. Cooking bacon or sausage is about as far as he usually gets in the kitchen, after all. 😉 

Anyway, these baked pork chops are a super simple, family-friendly recipe that is totally low carb and keto friendly.

We love breaded baked pork chops because it doesn’t feel like a low carb dinner and the breading adds a nice flavor and a bit of crunch to the outside of the pork chops.

Please note: these pork chops will NOT get quite as crispy as they do with bread crumbs, but we all LOVE these breaded pork chops anyway! They’re perfect, if you ask me!

What breading for baked pork chops: 

We’re keeping things low carb and super simple with these low carb pork chops!

First, you’ll want to grab a bag of pork rinds and crush them. You can use a meat tenderizer to crush them in the bag or you can pop them in your food processor. Both work well.

Combine the crush pork rinds with some powdered Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, and onion powder. 

So simple and so good!

You’ll also need a couple of beaten eggs to dunk your chops in. This will help the pork rind breading stick to the pork chops as they bake. 

How to bake pork chops: 

Preheat your oven to 400 degrees and spray a baking sheet with non-stick spray. 

Place your breaded pork chops on the baking sheet and pop them into the hot oven.

It doesn’t get much better than this!

How long to bake pork chops:

This will depend on the thickness of your pork chops.

For boneless chops that are about 3/4 – 1-inch thick, you’ll want to bake for 15-20 minutes.

I don’t recommend baking thinner pork chops as they tend to dry out quickly. 

Pork can be served a bit pink in the center or you can cook it entirely through.

Food Processor: This is not necessary for turning the pork rinds into crumbs as you can do this by hand, but it makes it so much quicker and easier. We use this food processor for everything from slicing veggies to shredding cheese. 

Baking Sheet: A large rimmed baking sheet is a kitchen essential. 

What to serve with these easy baked pork chops: 

My mashed cauliflower and keto coleslaw are perfect alongside pork chops. Broccoli with cheese sauce is a favorite. A side salad with ranch dressing is always a simple option, too.
