Oven Fried Pork Chops

Are you going to fry those?  This is what The Teen always asks whenever he sees pork chops in the fridge. I wasn't in the mood last night to go through all the work and cleanup required to fry them up in my electric skillet, so I decided to make them in the oven, and they were delicious.
I really need to get a better picture of them the next time, because the coating was crispier than it appears here. But, the guys were starving, and if I had dilly dallied much longer with playing photographer, I would have had an uprising in the dining room.
Anyhoo, shoddy photo aside, these are a fairly quick main to have on the table on a week night, and the men in my house said they didn't really mind that I didn't fry them the way I usually do.

6 pork chops, about 1 inch thick- I used boneless
1 egg
1 C milk
1 1/2 C. crushed gluten free saltines
3 TBL all purpose gluten free flour
seasoning of choice ( I used 1 tsp. paprika, 2 tsp. of powdered Ranch dressing, and salt & pepper. I may have also tossed in 1 TBL of Weber steak and chop seasoning)

3 TBL butter
3 TBL olive oil

Preheat your oven to 400* F

1. Line a 9x13 baking sheet with foil for easy cleanup and put your oil and butter on it. Place in the oven for a few minutes to melt the butter.

2. Whisk the egg and milk together in a small dish. Combine your cracker crumbs, flour and seasonings in another dish.

3. Dip your chops in the egg/milk mixture and then put them in the crumbs, turning to coat all over. Place on your baking sheet.

4. Bake for 20 minutes, turn over and bake another 15 minutes. Pork is done when it reaches an internal temp of 160*F

See how easy that was?!?
