Breaded and Grilled Pork Chops

Breaded and grilled pork chops. The healthy, but oh so good alternative to fried pork chops.
Servings: 2


  • 2 pork chops I prefer bone-in
  • 1 cup Italian style bread crumbs
  • 4 tablespoons Olive Oil


  • Place the bread crumbs in one bowl and the olive oil in another bowl.
  • Coat each side of the pork chops with oil and then press them into the bowl of bread crumbs so that you thoroughly coat all sides of the chops.  Press the chops firmly into the breadcrumbs to make sure you get good coverage and sitckage (well, it should be a word...).
  • Light the grill and set to medium heat.
  • This is important!  Using tongs and a rolled up paper towel drenched in cooking oil (you can use the excess olive oil), brush the grates to coat with oil so that the chops don't stick.
  • Place the pork chops on the grill and grill directly with the lid closed for about 6 - 7 minutes on each side (times depend on the thickness of your chops and the temperature of the grill).  You can check the pork's doneness by picking them up on one end with tongs.  Meat firms up when cooking.  Remember how flexible they were when raw?  Yeah, well, you want the opposite of that.
  • The bread crumbs should be golden brown with some nice grill marks, delicious!
