Ingredients

  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2-3 tablespoons Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • salt to taste

Instructions

  • In a shallow bowl or plate, mix Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, paprika, parsley, garlic powder and onion powder together.
  • Dip pork chops in the mixture.  Make sure pork chops are evenly coated on all sides, press mixture into the meat if necessary.  Sear chops in a large pan coated with olive oil on medium-high heat. Fry for 3-5 minutes on each side.
  • If using an oven-safe pan, place in oven or move pork chops to a glass baking dish and cook according to thickness. For thick pork chops, bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40-50 minutes. For regular thickness, cook at 350 degrees for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. For best results, use a meat thermometer.  Pork is done when it reaches an internal temp of 145 degrees.

Notes

The thinner your pork chops, the more quickly they’ll cook. I recommend a meat thermometer so that you cook them perfect and juicy every time.  
Pork is done when it reaches an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
You can skip the skillet browning step if you’re in a rush.  Just spray your pork chops with cooking spray to get them lightly browned in the oven while they bake.
