Oven Fried Pork Chops with Sweet & Sour Sauce





Oven Fried Pork Chops


Oven Fried Pork Chops with Sweet & Sour Sauce is basically a breaded and oven fried pork chop topped with a homemade sweet & sour sauce. Of course if you prefer a straight fried pork chop, you can do that too as I often switch around how I prepare this and both turn out great. Of course oven fried is a bit healthier.


This is a spin off of a recipe my Dad used to make for our family when we were kids, then my sister and I continued to make as teenagers which was so good. It is a dish we still both  make for our families even though each of us have made our own different modifications to it. I created a ketchup sweet and sour sauce that I think goes well with it but I’m sure it can be eaten alone or with another sauce if you choose.

How to Prepare Pork Chops and Sauce



*This post may contain affiliate links. Please Read my disclaimer here.


  1. Wash pork chops and pat dry. In a mixing bowl, season with black pepper and salt and rub over all pieces. Cover and let marinade for at least an hour.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine your eggs and milk and beat together.
  3. On a large plate or platter, combine your 2 breadcrumbs, season salt, garlic salt and Italian seasoning. Mix to combine well and spread out on the plate.
  4. Dip each pork chop into the egg, then into the breadcrumbs covering well on each side.
  5. *For oven frying, pre-heat oven to 425 degrees, foil a baking sheet, spray with pam and place chops 2″ apart, spray the top as well. Bake on each side for 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.
  6. *For frying method, heat a non-stick skillet on medium heat. Add oil, fry a couple at a time, not too close together for about 5 minutes on each side.
  7. Remove to a paper towel lined plate.
  8. Make the sauce by combining all ingredients in a small pot and simmer a few minutes.
  9. Best served immediately. Goes well with mashed potatoes and corn or peas.


The fried version will look like the one pictured below and may be a bit crispier. But I believe the oven baked tastes just as good.

  1. Wash pork chops & pat dry. Season with black pepper and salt and rub on all pieces in a medium mixing bowl, set aside.

  2. On a large plate, combine both breadcrumbs, the garlic salt, seasoned salt, and italian seasoning, set aside.

  3. In a medium bowl, combine beaten eggs and milk, stir together.

  4. In the meantime, start preparing pork chops by dipping one at a time and immersing both sides in eggwash, shake off excess, then dip and completely cover both sides in breadcrumb mixture. Prepare a couple at a time.

  5. * For oven fried- pre-heat oven to 425 degrees. Line a sheet pan with foil, spray with Pam spray. Place pork chops 2" apart from each other. Spray tops as well or drizzle with a little oil. Bake on each side for 10 minutes or until golden brown and cooked.

  7. Place in hot oil, a couple pieces at a time, spaced out in skillet. Fry about 5 minutes on each side or until golden brown. Remove to a papertowel lined plate. Repeat until all pieces cooked. Add more oil if needed.

  8. To make sauce, add all sauce ingredients to a small pot and bring to a boil, turn to medium-low heat and simmer 5-10 minutes.

  9. When ready to serve, drizzle sauce on pork chops or may serve on the side to dip pork chop pieces in.

Recipe Notes

* Serve with mashed potatoes, white rice, or side of choice, along with butter corn as my suggestion.

* To make butter corn, combine 1 - 15 oz. can of drained corn with 1-2 Tbsp. butter and 1/4 tsp. salt. Heat in a small pot on medium heat, simmer a few minutes.

* Optional- you can also use just plain canned corn.
