Baked Parmesan pork chops are tender and juicy with a crispy Parmesan crust. Pair them with a quick rice pilaf and some sauteed asparagus for a dinner everyone will enjoy.

When I can make the whole dinner in 40 minutes or less, that’s a win in my book!

My friend Gina’s newest cookbook, Skinnytaste Simple: Easy Healthy Recipes with 7 Ingredients or Fewer, arrived not too long ago and almost immediately I sat down to flip through it. I have at least a dozen recipes bookmarked and I can hardly wait to try them all.

I made the baked parmesan pork chops from the cookbook that weekend and served them with thyme mashed potatoes and a shaved Brussels sprouts salad that I’d prepped that morning. The whole family enjoyed the meal and the pork chops were a win with everyone.

If you don’t happen to have leftover mashed potatoes and a salad ready to go, or if you don’t feel much like cooking, start some rice before popping the pork chops in the oven. You’ll have plenty of time to steam, or saute some vegetables while the pork chops are baking. Easy peasy with a minimum of fuss!

Salted pork chops, breadcrumbs, and eggs

Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

You’ll need the following ingredients to make this recipe:

  • egg
  • olive oil

Dipping pork chops in egg

Parmesan Pork Chop Recipe

Preheat the oven to 425°F. Spray a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside. Season the pork chops on both sides with salt.

In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, Parmesan, garlic, and parsley. Stir with a fork to combine. In another shallow bowl, whisk the egg.

Breading pork chops

Dip the pork chops into the egg, then the breadcrumb mixture, pressing on both sides to make sure the crumbs stick to the pork. Place each coated pork chop on the prepared baking sheet.

Spray the tops of the pork chops with olive oil. Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on thickness, until the internal temperature reaches 145°F.

Chunks of savory, smoky ham are added to perfectly seasoned, gooey, cheesy pasta to make this Mac and Cheese with Ham. It’s certain to be a dinner you’ll make more than once.

    We had these for dinner tonight. I swapped the bread crumbs for pork rinds for dietary reasons and they were FANTASTIC! We will definitely make them again.
