Sometimes the simplest meals are the best meals, and this one is definitely one of my favorite pork dishes!
8 pork chops cut 1/2 inch thick
1-2 Tbsp olive oil
1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
3 whole eggs
1/4 cup whole milk (whole milk will make the breading stick better as opposed to reduced fat or fat-free)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
1/4 cup fresh parsley; finely chopped
1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
1. In 2 medium-sized open bowls, crack 3 eggs and milk and whisk together. In another bowl, add bread crumbs and parmesan cheese.
2. The best and most efficient way to do this is to form an assembly-type line. First- the plate of uncooked pork chops, second- the egg mixture, third- the breadcrumbs, and fourth- a large empty plate to put the breaded pork chops. Sprinkle salt, pepper, and garlic powder on uncooked pork chops before coating.
3. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F and heat a large frying pan on medium heat with oil. With tongs (or your hands), place pork chop in egg mixture and be sure to cover both sides, then transfer to bread crumb mixture and make sure bread crumbs are evenly coated both sides. Repeats until all pork chops are done.
4. Next, place 4 pork chops at a time in large frying pan and cook for 3 minutes on each sides. They will NOT be completely cooked! Once all pork chops have been fried, put on large baking sheet and place in oven for 25-30 minutes. Sprinkle more parmesan cheese and parsley on top when serving!
