Parmesan Crusted Baked Pork Chops

It is crazy to me that for years I avoided making pork chops. Now we love them! I posted a recipe last year for baked pork chops, and they were a huge hit with my family. These are similar, but have an Italian flair. And lots more Parmesan cheese, which I love! It gives the pork chops a really flavorful crunchy crust. So yummy!

If your family likes pork chops, you should give this recipe a try! Just make sure you don't over-bake them, because dry pork chops are not awesome.

Parmesan Crusted Baked Pork Chops

4 boneless pork chops
1 egg
1 Tbsp water
1/3 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese (I used freshly grated Parmesan)
1/4 tsp pepper
1/8 tsp paprika
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 Tbsp olive oil
Whisk together egg and water in a shallow dish. In another shallow dish, mix together bread crumbs, cheese, pepper, paprika, parsley, and garlic powder. Heat a skillet to medium hot. Dip pork chops in egg mixture, then in crumb mixture. Brown each side in olive oil in the hot skillet. (It takes 3-5 minutes per side.) Place in a 9×13" baking dish. Bake at 350° for about 30 minutes, or until pork chops are done.

  1. All my breading stuck to the non-stick oiled pan and didn't make it to the oven part of the recipe – any tips? Did I have the heat too high?

    • Use equal parts of butter and olive oil to fry them in and keep temp at Med heat

    • gregory zollo says:

      after you bread the meat-put on a plate with tooth picks inserted and tent with plastic wrap–put in the refrigerator for a half hour so the topping sets-then it should not fall off or stick!

  2. I plan to try this recipe tonight. It looks super easy. Thank you for sharing it.

  3. If you spray them with the olive oil and bake them at 375, you won't have to brown them. I bake them on non stick foil.

  4. I just saw these on My Recipe Magic. They look Yummy!!
