Season each pork chop lightly with garlic salt, eyeball the amount, to your taste. Dip each into the egg wash.
Dredge chops in seasoned breadcrumbs. Press the breadcrumbs firmly onto each pork chop. Arrange on the baking rack.
Drizzle each chop with melted butter. May use more butter, if desired or spritz with cooking spray.
