"I made this last night - the only issue I had was that my chops were too thick and the outside was dark brown before the inside was cooked. I would recommend using thin cut pork chops to avoid this! I simplified the first step by mixing in the sage, thyme, and some garlic salt (I used this instead of cooking up garlic in the oil and then throwing it away) with the parmesan cheese instead of rubbing it on separately... I don't feel that the end result was any less tasty. With my modifications the recipe should be even quicker and easier for the next time I make it!"- Intelegantblonde
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.
Linda1915 2 days 2 minutes agoThis was very good and very easy. I will definitely make it again. I used thicker pork chops (that's all I had at the time), and cooked them on a lower temperature so that they would not over brown. I also increased the cooking time to about 30 minutes total.
weedblossom 2 months agoOk, so I was looking through the submitted pictures of this dish and a lot of them look overdone or burnt. The easiest way to tell if they are ready to flip over is the sides of the pork chops are turning golden brown. The best heat on the stove top for this is 4-5, anything higher will overcook them. Also, do not crowd the pan and change out oil if it starts getting leftover burnt breadcrumbs.

shawnmarie26 2 months agoGreat flavor! Just be aware of your oil temp. The coating goes from beautiful to burned in a heartbeat if it is too high.
tucker-hayley 2 months agoIt takes longer then 20 minutes to prepare. It's also very messy! I wouldn't make it again, nor recommend. Watch your cooking time, 5 minutes on each side is not long enough for 1/2 inch think pork!
