Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops

It takes only a few ingredients to make delicious and juicy pork chops that your family will love!

These pork chops are coated with a flavorful mixture of bread crumbs, herbs and parmessan cheese that give them a nice crispy exterior and a moist, tender interior. Serve these yummy chops with a simple salad and a side of vegetables for a perfect week night meal.

Parmesan-Crusted Pork Chops
2 large eggs
1 cup dried Italian-style bread crumbs
3/4 cups freshly grated Parmesan
4 (1/2 to 3/4-inch thick) center-cut pork loin chops (each about 10 to 12 ounces)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
6 tablespoons olive oil
Lemon wedges, for serving
Whisk the eggs in a pie plate to blend. Place the bread crumbs in another pie plate. Place the cheese in a third pie plate. Sprinkle the pork chops generously with salt and pepper. Coat the chops completely with the cheese, patting to adhere. Dip the chops into the eggs, then coat completely with the bread crumbs, patting to adhere.

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a very large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops, in batches if necessary, and cook until golden brown and the center reaches 150 degrees, about 6 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to plates and serve with lemon wedges.

Yeah. It's a good, basic pork chop recipe to have on hand. Ina Garten makes a parmesan chicken that she serves over fancy lettuce greens with a simple lemon vinaigrette. These pork chops would be tasty served that way too.
