Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 15 minutes
Total Time 25 minutes
Servings 4 people
- 4, 1/2- inch thick boneless pork chops
- 1 1/2 cups plain or Italian style bread crumbs
- 1 egg beaten
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
- canola or vegetable oil for frying
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
In a medium bowl, beat the eggs and water.
In a second bowl or on a medium plate, place the flour, salt and pepper and mix well.
In a third bowl or on a medium plate, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning.
Working with one chop at a time, coat both sides first in the flour, shaking off the excess.
Then dip into the egg and finally into the breadcrumb mixture, pressing well on both sides.
Set the chops aside.
Preheat 1/2 inch of oil in a skillet over medium high heat until chops sizzle as soon as they touch the pan. If they don't sizzle, let the oil get hotter before you put them in.
Add the chops and fry until the breadcrumbs are brown on each side, about 2 minutes per side. Keep a close eye on them.
Transfer the browned chops to a rimmed baking sheet lined in parchment paper or aluminum foil. Cook 15 minutes more in the oven. Serve with rice, broccoli or your favorite side.
