Today's recipe came from Just A Pinch. We both thoroughly enjoyed it, very simple and easy, and tasty. We thought the breadcrumb coating was delicious
Parmesan Baked Pork Chops - serves 4
Preparation time: 5 minutes
Cooking time: 45 minutes in a 350 degree oven.
4 boneless pork chops, 1/2" thick
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 cup Parmesan cheese
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp garlic powder
Preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit
Prepare a baking pan by lining with aluminum foil and coating lightly with cooking spray.
On a plate combine thoroughly Parmesan cheese, Italian breadcrumbs, black pepper and garlic powder.
Rub the pork chops with olive oil. Dip each into the cheese/breadcrumb mixture, coating both sides and pressing the mixture over the pork chops to make sure they are well covered.
Place the pork chops on the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
We served this with our favorite cauliflower and mashed potato recipe which you can find here.
Also a simple green salad - your choice of greens and dressing. I used the lemon dressing I previously posted in this recipe.
I didn't have any Italian seasoned breadcrumbs. Instead I used two slices of whole wheat bread (one was the crust), and made them into fine breadcrumbs using a blender. If I had any Italian seasoning I would have added a teaspoon, but it was still a nice flavor with only the pepper and the garlic powder.
I used non-stick aluminum foil to line the baking dish and didn't have to use cooking spray.
I turned the pork chop over half way through the cooking process.
If you make it I hope you will enjoy the recipe as much as we did. It will definitely be on our rotation
Thank you for a wonderful year of friendship, a challenging year for all of us to be sure.
Enjoy your week and may you all see only good health and happiness in 2021.
