Place your leftover cooked pork chops into an airtight container and store them in the fridge for up to 2-3 days. You can use the microwave or the oven to reheat it. In this case, we suggest to add some liquid to prevent the pork chops from drying out.
You can also store the leftovers in the freezer for up to 5-6 months in safe bags.
Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking pan with foil, then put a cooling rack in the pan. Whisk the egg and water in a small bowl.
In a separate bowl, combine bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, and cheese. Dunk the first pork chop in the egg, then coat it entirely in the bread crumb mix. Repeat with remaining pork chops.
Heat olive oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Cook the pork chops for 1 to 2 minutes on each side until they become golden brown.
Place the pork chops on the cooling rack and bake for 15 to 18 minutes. Check with an instant-read meat thermometer.
When the chops read 145°F, they're ready to be served. Enjoy!
