These savory pork chops come out juicy, tender, and are complimented wonderfully by the parmesan, sage and garlic. This great dish can stand alone without needing a sauce or gravy to flavor it...and makes an easy dinner in less than an hour.
Spread Parmesan cheese in a shallow dish. Beat eggs with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil in another shallow dish. Spread bread crumbs in a third shallow dish.
Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels. Combine salt, pepper, sage, and thyme, and sprinkle generously over both sides of chops, pressing seasonings into meat with your fingers. Bread pork chops one at a time. Dredge seasoned chops in Parmesan cheese, coating both sides completely, patting to adhere. Then, using tongs, carefully dip both sides of chops in egg mixture, letting excess drip back into dish to ensure thin coating. Finally, dip both sides of chops in bread crumbs, pressing crumbs with fingers to form an even, cohesive coating. Place breaded chops on wire rack set over baking sheet, allow coating to dry for about 5 minutes. (The recipe can be done ahead to this point; cover chops loosely with wax paper and refrigerate for up to one hour.)
Heat a large heavy-bottomed skillet over medium-low heat with enough olive oil to come halfway up the sides of the chops, about 1/4 cup. To flavor oil; stir in garlic, and cook until lightly browned. Remove garlic from skillet and discard or reserve for other uses. Increase heat to medium. When oil shimmers, add chops and fry 4 to 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown and crispy, or to an internal temperature between 150 and 160 degrees F. Drain on rack set over baking sheet, then transfer to a warm serving platter. Serve with lemon wedges and garnish with parsley sprigs.

teola_mulholland 3m agoAwesome,I did not have pork chops, but I had a pork tenderloin. Cut it up into 1inch slices. It worked 😜
ariel1200s 4m agoCrisp and perfectly delicious.
dslakoff 5m agoGood recipe. This was more work than I'm used to putting in for a meal for 2, but I would be willing to make again. I didn't have lemon handy, and I did feel that it was missing a little something. I will have to make sure I have lemon next time.

tanimags 1y agoThis dish was labour intensive to prepare but worth every minute. I browned the chops in the pan and finished them in the oven. Don't forget the lemon and parsley at the end. The flavours were delicious!
