What you’ll need
Thin Cut Pork Chops
Panko Bread Crumbs
Salt + Pepper
Beat eggs in a shallow dish and add salt and pepper
Add the zest of 1 lemon to 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese. Zest lemon just on surface. Don’t go too deep.
Stir in the zest
Put 1 cup panko breadcrumbs in a third bowl
Season both sides of chops with salt and pepper
Heat 6 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat
Coat chops in cheese, then egg, then breadcrumbs.
When coating with cheese, really get in there and pat the mixture on!
Dip in egg and flip then let the excess drip off
Coat evenly in the breadcrumbs. I ended up needing more. Approximately 1 & 1/2 cups total.
Fry in shallow pan for 3 minutes on each side until browned. Thicker chops need 6 mins on each side
In between batches, add a little more oil if needed. (I should have)
Use thermometer to check the internal temp is at least 165° F if unsure of doneness
Pork should be mostly white, but a tinge of pink is ok. If unsure, check temp is 165° F
I served with broccoli and quinoa. I topped with a little lemon juice
