  • 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
  • oil for frying I recommend refined coconut or avocado oil


  • 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 to rest for 5 minutes.
  • 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 1-2 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 or until the pork chops reach 140/145 degrees. Serve with rice, broccoli or your favorite side.
