  • Mix bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, lemon zest, and black pepper in a large bowl; rub onto pork chops to coat completely.

  • Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Fry coated pork chops in hot oil until browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side; transfer to a baking sheet.

  • Bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, flip, and continue baking until no longer pink in the center, about 25 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 145 degrees F (63 degrees C).

My hubby loved this (I'm more of a leave-the-meat-alone type). I have to agree that this was not only easy but tasty. I did use a teaspoon of dried parsley rather than fresh and the olive oil I used was lime flavored. I think that between 1/4 and 1/3 cup of bread crumbs would be a great option because I had some of my Progresso Italian crumbs left over. I wondered how I was going to make this breading stay on the pork chop without the usual flour/egg/breading recipe type but it just did. My pork chops were bone-in and not as thick as I'd have liked them so they did cook fast in the oven---only about 15 minutes after browning them on stovetop. You need to moosh the breading mixture together with a fork to get it to hang together but it really does. Thanks for dinner tonight Fenhoff! Read More

This was fine but didn't have much taste even though I added salt to the breadcrumb mix. Followed the recipe as outlined except for adding the salt and not cooking as long. Would have been way overdone had I kept it in the oven so long. Will not be using this recipe again. Read More

This was OK I won't make again. The lemon was the dominant taste. My husband loves pork chops and he said the same thing that it was OK. Read More

This chops were very juicy! I absolutely will make it again. I will also add salt to my taste but as is the flavor is excellent. By the way I only had dried parsley so I used it and the recipe came out great. My chops were pretty thick so I had to adjust the baking time and technique accordingly. I baked for 25 minutes each side covered with aluminum foil. Then I baked for 15 minutes without foil. It was excellent! Read More
