Italian Breaded Pork Chops

I made this recipe for Easter (found on All Recipes.com), & it was yummy! But here's a BIG FAT TIP: if you aren't used to sticking skillets in the oven, MAKE SURE you grab the skillet handle WITH AN OVEN MITT! I definitely grasped the handle after taking it out to check to see if they were done, & had the spend the rest of the day with my hand in a bowl of ice water.


  • 3 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 4 pork chops


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. In a small bowl, beat together the eggs and milk. In a separate small bowl, mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, and parsley.
  3. Heat the olive oil in a large, oven-proof skillet over medium heat. Stir in the garlic, and cook until lightly browned. Remove garlic*, reserving for other uses.
  4. Dip each pork chop into the egg mixture, then into the bread crumb mixture, coating evenly. Place coated pork chops in the skillet, and brown abut 5 minutes on each side.
  5. Place the skillet and pork chops in the preheated oven, and cook 25 minutes*, or to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F (70 degrees C).

*Modifications: I used a thin cut pork chop, so it was done after about 15 minutes, so I would just check it early depending on the size. (For some reason, checking the temperature of pork to see if it's done doesn't work for me.) Also, I left the garlic in the skillet & put the pork on top because I love garlic, & I thought it was really good.
