Italian Breaded Pork Chops
These breaded pork chops are from my father's side of the family which is Sicilian. We've been making these pork chops for at least 3 generations. My husband frequently requests these over my marinated and grilled pork chops when I give him a choice. If you do not have an oven-proof skillet, you may cook the chops on the stove at medium-low.
- 3eggs, lightly beaten
- 3tablespoons milk
- 1½ cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
- ½cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 2tablespoons dried parsley
- 2tablespoons olive oil
- 4cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
- 4pork chops
Step 1Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C).
Step 2Beat eggs and milk together in a shallow dish.
Step 3Mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and parsley together in a second shallow dish.
Step 4Heat oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Stir in garlic and cook until just golden brown to flavor the oil. Remove garlic with a slotted spoon and reserve for another use.
Step 5Dip each pork chop into egg mixture, then bread crumb mixture until well coated.
Step 6Place pork chops in the skillet and cook until golden and crisp, about 5 minutes on each side.
Step 7Transfer the skillet into the preheated oven and bake chops for 25 minutes, or to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).
