Ingredients

  • 4 loin pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick) about 1-1/2 pounds
  • 1-1/2 tbsp. olive oil extra virgin
  • 3/4 cup panko bread crumbs plain
  • 1/3 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350° F. Pour the olive oil into a small mixing bowl. Mix the bread crumbs with the parmesan cheese and seasonings. Dip the pork chops one at a time in the olive oil or brush them with a pastry brush.

  2. Place the bread crumb mixture on a piece of parchment or waxed paper. Dredge each pork chop in the bread crumbs and lightly press the crumbs into the chops with the back of a fork.

  3. Place the pork chops onto a foil lined or well greased baking sheet. Bake in preheated oven for 40 to 45 minutes or until juices run clear.

Recipe Notes

Try serving these chops with red potatoes in foil or some oven baked cauliflower.

Did you know:  Panko (パン粉) is a variety of flaky bread crumb used in Japanese cuisine as a crunchy coating for fried foods, such as tonkatsu. Panko is made from bread baked by electrical current, which yields a bread without a crust, and then grinding the bread to create fine slivers of crumb.  And that, my friends, is why they are crunchier.
