Remove the pork chops from the brine and rinse under cold water. Pat dry with a paper towel.

Brush both sides of the pork chops with olive oil then coat with the Panko bread crumbs.

You need to plan ahead. Pork chops need to be brined a minimum of 12 hours prior to baking. The brine needs to be cool before adding the pork chops. [I posted this recipe.]
