Ingredients

  • 5 pork chops (thick cut 1- 1 1/2 inches (2 1/2 - 3.8 cm)
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs (62.5 grams)
  • 3 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1-2 tablespoons fresh Italian parsley chopped*
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil for drizzling

*You can also substitute with 1/2 -1 teaspoon dried parsley.

    Instructions

    • Pre heat oven to 375° (190°). Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and drizzle with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.
    • On a large plate mix together the bread crumbs, parmesan cheese, salt and parsley, coat the pork chops very well with the crumb mixture one at a time, place on prepared baking sheet, sprinkle lightly with salt (pinch) and drizzle with 1 tablespoon olive oil.
    • Bake in pre heated oven for approximately 30-35 minutes**, halfway through baking turn the chops over, and sprinkle with any extra crumbs. In the last 5 minutes I raised the temperature to 390°/200°, for extra browning. Let the chops sit 3-5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!
    • ** Pork needs to be cooked to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F.
