These delicious crispy pork chops are baked and not fried although you could fry them in canola oil in a non-stick skillet if you wanted. I just put a thin coat of oil on the baking sheet and then just mist the tops of them with an oil sprayer so there is very little added fat. I also use lean boneless center loin chops for this recipe. We often serve them with whole wheat pasta tossed with a favorite pesto.

These are also very good with your favorite Marinara or Puttanesca sauce over the top too. Find an easy Puttanesca sauce recipe here.
  • 6 center loin pork chops (3/4 inch thick cut)
  • ½ cup flour
  • 1 egg + 1 tbsp water whisked together (eggwash)
  • 1 cup Panko crumbs
  • 1/3 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to season

Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Mix the Parmesan with the panko crumbs. Dredge the pork chops in the flour, then dip in the egg wash and finally in the panko crumbs.

Place the chops on a lightly oiled baking sheet and mist or drizzle the tops with a little olive oil.

Bake for about 35 minutes in a preheated 375 degree F oven. I like to flip them over half way through the cooking time.

Use a meat thermometer to check that the center of the pork hops has reached 145 degrees F. Let the chops rest for 5 minutes before serving.

What are Panko crumbs? I'm in Colorado and am not familiar with this item.

Panko is a crunchy Japanese breadcrumb. Look for it in the Oriental or International food section at your supermarket.

Barry, where can I get Panko in St. John's area? I wonder if you read the same food blogs I do -- every now and then you, PDub, and Chef John run similar recipes -- Panko has been popular of late :-)

Sorry, I don't know those blogs...I barely have time to update mine these days let alone read others. Panko has been pretty popuar for a few years now that I've noticed. I get mine at Auntie crae's downtown.

FYI, Panko is the Japanese word for bread crumbs!

These were standard cut from the supermarket shelf to about 3/4 inch.Adjust cooking time accordingly.

I made these tonight with cooked apples and cheese grits (yummy Virginia staples). They were fabulous - many thanks!

Looks so yummy. I have seen Panko breadcrumbs at most of the Sobey's supermarkets.

This looks great! Don't suppose you have any idea on the nutritionals? I'd love to know calories/prepared chop...thanks!!

I don't routinely do that Jen. There are online recipe calculators to help with that if you choose.

You can find panko crumbs next to the cans of bread crumbs in any grocery storeW

I get my Panko bread crumbs from Wal Mart or any grocery store. Look on the isle where the flour & cirn meal & stuff are. They are usually in a container like Pringles...only shorter & fatter.
