Cuisine: American / Italian
Prep Time: 5 minutes 
Cook Time: 6 to 8 minutes
Total Time: 11 to 13 minutes
Servings: 2 to 4


  • 4 thin-cut pork chops (I used bone-in pork chops)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • 1 cup dry Italian breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Italian seasoning
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon parsley flakes (optional)
  • olive oil, for frying

Here's how to make it:

  1. Whisk the egg, milk, salt and pepper (to taste) together in a small bowl. Put the breadcrumbs, Parmesan, Italian seasoning, garlic powder and parsley flakes onto a plate. Toss to combine.
  2. Heat a couple tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Season the pork chops with salt and pepper. Dip into the egg-milk mixture and then dredge in the breadcrumbs. Press the crumbs to really stick to the pork chops. Put into the hot oil.
  3. Cook until golden brown and crispy on both sides, about 3 to 4 minutes per side, depending on thickness.
