Recipe: Italian- Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

I made an awesome Crockpot Brown Sugar and Balsamic Glazed Pork Tenderloin earlier this week (check my Pinterest board for the recipe), but had 1/2 of the tenderloin left over (it was HUGE).  I decided to make pork chops using what I had around the house. Easy and YUMMY!

Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 6
  • 6½-inch thick boneless pork loin chops
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • ¾ teaspoon Black Pepper
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon Onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon Garlic powder
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 1 tablespoon Vegetable oil
  • 1½ cup Panko bread crumbs
  1. Spread Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish. Beat eggs with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in another shallow dish. Spread bread crumbs in a third shallow dish.
  2. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Combine salt, pepper, Italian seasoning, onion powder, and garlic powder.
  3. Sprinkle generously over chops, (both sides), pressing and rubbing seasonings into the meat with your fingers.
  4. Dredge seasoned chops (one at a time) in Parmesan cheese, coating both sides completely and patting to adhere.
  5. Dip both sides of chops in egg mixture, letting excess drip back into dish.
  6. Dip both sides of chops in bread crumbs, pressing crumbs with fingers to adhere and form an even coating.
  7. Place in an ungreased 13x9x2 baking pan. Bake on center rack, uncovered at 375 F. for 30 minutes or until pork is no longer pink.
  8. Move to top rack and broil for 2-3 minutes to brown the crust.
