Great pork chops! Only i have one suggestion... reason i only gave 4 instead of 5 stars. I would put the seasonings into the cracker crumbs instead of the egg so the flavor sticks better. Also add italian seasoning and a pinch of salt and pepper. Yummm!!!

I tried this a couple months ago when I didnt have regular breadcrumbs - I didnt like the saltines at all. They get soggy real fast and don't turn out well. I like to season the chops first with salt, pepper and garlic powder, then flour lightly, dip in beaten egg, then in seasoned (or not)breadcrumbs. Fry in hot oil till browned on one side, flip and do the same. If chops are real thick, transfer to cookie sheet and finish in oven for 20-30 minutes. Oh and this works equally well on chicken. I do it all the time.

This recipe is pretty impressive. I used really thick pork chops which always seem to be tough and dry no matter how you cook them, but they were awesome. I followed the recipe exactly and it was delicious. Will definitely make this again.

Oh yum! These were the perfect amount of crunch and moist. I only baked them for about 15 minutes as advised by one of the reviews (my chops are cut really thin). Serve with some scalloped potatoes...this recipe is so easy & so good!

This is a super dish and I have been making it for years. I let the chops soak in the egg (added the seasonings to egg; suggest oregano and garlic salt) for about 15-30 minutes then bread in crushed saltines. Other readers have suggested Ritz but I feel it hides the taste. After breading let the chops rest on wax paper so the breading hardens. This keeps the breading on the chops during frying. I know that rating this recipe then saying I changed it really doesn't count but the concept is a keeper and I just wanted to add another thought to the same concept. This has always been a winner in my family.

I "clean the frying pan" with 1/4 cup water, and 1/4 cup white wine: bring it to a boil, let it cook down for 2 minutes; then add it to the chops. Very good recipe: my Mom used to make it too!

Perfect!! I used club crackers and would suggest thick pork chops for about 35 minutes.
