Italian Breaded Baked Parmesan Pork Chops
2 eggs, lightly beaten
1⁄4 cup milk
1 1⁄2 cups dry breadcrumbs
1⁄2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 1⁄2 teaspoons garlic powder
1⁄2-1 teaspoon salt
1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
1 pinch cayenne pepper (optional)
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1⁄2 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
2 tablespoons oil
1 tablespoon butter
7 thick-cut pork chops
Set oven to 350 degrees F.
Butter a 13 x 9-inch baking dish or a medium jelly-roll baking sheet (or use a baking dish large enough to hold the chops in).
In a bowl whisk together the eggs with milk.
In a shallow dish mix together the dry breadcrumbs with Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, salt, black pepper, cayenne, parsley and Italian seasoning.
Let the chops sit at room temperature for about 45 minutes.
Heat oil and butter in a skillet over medium-high heat.
Dip the chops into the egg/milk mixture
Coat in the breadcrumb mixture completely.
Brown the chops in the skillet on both sides (about 4-5 minutes per side) sprinkling both sides with seasoned salt when browning (you may omit this step if desired and just bake in the oven).
Place in prepared baking dish.
Bake the chops for about 25 minutes or until cooked
