This baked breaded pork chop recipe has Italian roots. The pork chops are breaded with Italian seasoned breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese, browned in a skillet and then baked in the oven.
Italian Breaded Pork Chop Recipe
Prep time: About 15 Min.
Cook time: About 30 Min.
Total time: 45 min
3 eggs, lightly beaten
3 tablespoons milk
Small Amount of Flour for Coating
1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons dried parsley
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
4 pork chops
Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F.
In a small bowl, beat together the eggs and milk. In a separate small bowl, mix the breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, and parsley.
Heat the olive oil in a large, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until lightly browned. Remove the garlic, reserving for other uses.
Flour each pork chop and then dip into the egg mixture and then into the breadcrumb mixture coating the pork chops evenly. Place the coated pork chops in the skillet and brown about 2 minutes on each side.
For an even thicker breading you can do the egg wash/breadcrumb dip twice.
Note: Coating the pork chops with flour before placing in the egg mixture binds the egg and keeps the coating on better. This works for anything that is to be breaded before cooking.
Place the skillet and pork chops in the preheated oven, and cook 25 minutes, or to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F.
For a less greasy breaded baked pork chop you can remove the pork chops from the skillet and place on a rack in a roasting pan for the baking.
I like to serve these baked breaded pork chops with buttered noodles, a salad and crusty bread. Love it!
