A Crispy Coating That Makes a Difference

We understand the struggle of cooking perfect pork chops. That’s why we’ve developed a recipe that guarantees juicy results every time. Our Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops start with a flavorful coating made with grated Parmesan cheese, Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs, smoked paprika, dried parsley, garlic powder, and black pepper. This combination infuses the chops with a mouthwatering taste and a delightful crunch.

Easy to Prepare, Impossible to Resist

Preparing these pork chops couldn’t be simpler. Begin by combining all the coating ingredients in a shallow dish. We recommend using a wide pie plate to ensure even coating of the pork chops. Heat olive oil in a frying pan over medium heat, and while it heats up, dip the chops in the breadcrumb mixture, gently pressing them to coat them evenly. Next, pan-fry the breaded pork chops for two minutes on each side to achieve a golden brown crust. If your frying pan is oven-safe, you can transfer the chops directly to the oven to bake. Otherwise, transfer them to a baking dish. Bake the pork chops at 145 degrees F for 8 to 10 minutes until they reach the perfect, juicy doneness. Let them rest for a few minutes before serving.

Keeping It Juicy

To ensure your pork chops turn out tender and succulent, it’s crucial to cook them to the correct temperature. Use a meat thermometer to measure the internal temperature, aiming for 145 degrees F. Overcooked pork chops result in a chewy texture, so avoid this by monitoring the temperature carefully.

A Healthy Delight

If you’re looking for a healthy option without sacrificing flavor, boneless pork chops are an excellent choice. They are lean and low in fat compared to other cuts of meat, making them an ideal protein source. Plus, they’re lower in calories compared to other pork and beef cuts.

So, if you have some pork chops waiting in your freezer, now is the time to whip them up. You most likely have all the ingredients on hand for this quick and easy recipe. Give our Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops a try, and taste the difference for yourself!
