"I am always looking for new and delicious ways to prepare pork chops. These are delicious, easy to put together and use things that are in most people's pantries. A real family pleaser. Serve with rice pilaf and a green vegetable."
Serving Size: 1 (149 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I used inch thick pork loin chops and thought this was excellent! I also took the advice from another reviewer and baked potatoes with the pork. I used a 9X13 glass baking dish, quartered 3 russet potatoes and all I did was to brush some caesar dressing on the potatoes and sprinkle with the parmesan and baked for an hour."
"Okay... not sure if I should rate this recipe since I used it for chicken instead of pork... but boy was it good. As we are all watching our weight, I omitted the flour and just sprinkled the italian seasoning generously on top of the chicken breasts (boneless/skinless). Then I poured on the caesar salad dressing (Kraft Free, of course) and baked them for 35 minutes. Then sprinkled on the cheese and baked them another 3 or 4 minutes until the cheese melted. Using this recipe as a guideline, I also made it with pork steaks, substituting bold taco seasoning for the italian seasoning, chipotle ranch for the caesar, and shredded taco cheese for the parmesan. It was delicious. Both the chicken and pork turned out great! A nice basic recipe that really gets the ideas and creative juices flowing! Thanks!"
"Fantastic and easy! I browned my boneless butterfly chops in a bit of oil olive before adding the caesar dressing and throwing in the oven. By doing so this reduced the cooking time in the oven by half. I'll definitely be making this recipe again, thanks for posting!"
"Reading through a lot of the reviews, I find it strange that some people would make a recipe when they obviously are not very keen on the ingredients, or they make substantial changes -- and then they say they didn't like it much! We like these flavours, and the recipe is so quick and easy. I also wonder if cooks who were not happy with the results really used real Parmesan and a good creamy Caesar salad dressing? I only added a very little extra seasoning-with-a-bite (dry Piquante Pepper seasoning/Peppadew) to the Italian herbs, but used the recipe unchanged. My chops were nicely cooked after 25 - 30 minutes, but cooking times depend so much on the different ovens. The flavour was great -- mild but tasty. I did not use loin chops (terrified of their notorious "dryness"), but a chop cut which had some marbling running through them. So they were juicy. I should add we don't mind a little fat at all ... I'm pleased to see that some doctors and dieticians are coming round to the idea that a little animal fat (used for 1,000's of years, after all!) are not at all bad for us!! Thanks, Marie-Alice, for a recipe I'll use again. Should be great with chicken too."
"I wasn't sure what to expect with this recipe. I was concerned that the chops might come out of the oven with a soggy/mushy texture. I needn't have worried. They were delicious! I doubled the recipe to feed my family of 6 and before we had even finished the meal the two remaining chops had been "called" for lunches the next day. This is high praise from my non-leftover eating family!"
"These were really easy to make, had all ingredients on hand. They weren't the best I've ever had, but still good and easy. I will make them again. I think ranch dressing would also be good in place of the caesar. Just an idea for next time..."
"Well, I have to agree with PBF this dish looked very appealing and did smell amazing while cooking but I really didn't care for the combination of flavors. Even my husband who loves just about everything didn't care for this recipe. On the other hand both by 6 and 9 yr old boys loved it so that is why I'm giving this recipe 3 stars instead of 1. I followed the recipe exactly as written sorry Tasty Tidbits I was really hoping for 'AMAZING' according to the other reviews."
"Tasty these chops were nice and moist. After reading the reviews I seasoned the chops before breading. Even though they didn't come out crunchy the flavor was good. I mixed panko with Italian breadcrumbs instead of flour and added some grated parm in. Next time I think I would cook them on a rack to let the grease drain and them to crisp up some. Thanks for the recipe,"
"I thought this was great! i did add salt and pepper and used boneless chops. I used Ken's Creamy Caesar Lite (ken's is the best!) and served this with garlic bread and peas. Thanks Tasty!"
"I misread the recipe. Spread the caesar dressing on first. Then coated them with wheat flour, Italian seasoning and grated parmesan. We really enjoyed them. Served with roasted potatoes. Yummy! Will try according to directions next time for comparison."
"I had everything here to make these. I used the ingredients listed but I did brush the dressing on the chops instead of the dip method. It workes great. They did produce a lot of grease but I just poured that off. My chops were nice and brown on top when they were done without the broiler. They were delicious and enjoyed greatly by my guests. I will definitely make these again."
"nice and easy recipe. the caesar gives off a nice tangy flavor. i used thin, boneless chops. i also jazzed up the flour a bit more with garlic powder, cayenne and salt and pepper. i didn't measure the dressing, perhaps i used too much or the brand that i used was too greasy. i ended up pulling the chops out of the casserole dish cuz they were sitting in grease. I placed them on a baking sheet, topped with parm and then broiled. they browned up but were still very soft. i might experiment with browning the chops first, then coating in dressing and parm and just broiling quickly. anyway, thanks for sharing. served with roasted asparagus and twice baked potatoes."
"I cook this often and love it! Leave the parm off until the end and then sprkinle it on and broil for a couple minutes."
"Good chops. Mine were a little on the thick side so I just cooked 35 minutes and then broiled for the last 3 to 5 minutes on a low broil to brown the cheese, etc. Not sure I would repeat the recipe as I have alot of pork chop recipes that we find more palatable to our liking. Thanks for sharing."
"These came out very moist & tasty...I added some garlic powder to the flour along w/ salt & pepper. Thanks for a keeper"
"Good flavour but not so appealing to the eye. Mine looked kind of pale in colour and not nicely browned like some of the photos. Next time I would add the cheese in the last 10-15 min and maybe broil to get that nice brown colour. Thx."
"I didnt follow the recipe as much as the method. I had 1 inch boneless pork loin chops. I also had snap peas and match stick carrots I wanted to use up so asian was the way I wanted to go. I floured my chops and the flour was seasoned with an asian seasoning (premade) that had garlic, ginger, black and white sesame seeds in it. I used a high quality commercial made ginger sesame salad dressing in lieu of the ceasar and topped it with additional asian seasoning. I baked at 375 in a convection oven for 35 minutes. I used the fat/juice that was off the pork chops to saute the peas and carrots. This was delicious! It's all about the method IMO. My husband commented that the pork was like butter and these chops were VERY lean to begin with making them hard to cook sometimes without drying out! I will use this method with other flavor combos!!!!"
"These needed some seasoning. I didn't put any salt or anything because I thought the dressing and parmasean cheese would make it salty. I used grated parmasean cheese. I had to add some salt on top. There was some good bites though. Will try again!!!!"
"We made the recipe exactly as posted (with 3/4 inch think pork chops that were on sale) using Renee's Light Caesar dressing (Canada) and our entire family including my picky 9 year old loved them. I would not use a low quality Caesar dressing for this one - I don't know how that would taste or how it would impact the greasiness, as ours were not greasy at all. Our chops were excellent! We will definitely be making this super easy and tasty recipe again!"
"Delicious! I didn't have Italian seasoning so used dried basil and oregano, and decided to add some garlic salt to the flour. Also I browned the chops first before baking, and added the shredded Parmesan about 8 minutes before it was done (gave it about 25 minutes total in the oven). Turned out wonderfully. Thanks for posting! I will definitely make this again."
