  • 4 pork chops, bone-in or boneless
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably seasoned)
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Cooking oil for frying


  1. Prepare the breading station by setting up three shallow dishes. In the first dish, beat the eggs with a pinch of salt and pepper. In the second dish, combine the grated Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, garlic powder, paprika, and a pinch of salt and pepper. Leave the third dish empty for the coated pork chops.
  2. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels to remove any excess moisture. Season both sides of each pork chop with salt and pepper according to your taste preferences.
  3. Dip each pork chop into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s thoroughly coated.
  4. Transfer the egg-coated pork chop to the breadcrumb-Parmesan mixture, pressing gently to adhere the breading to both sides. Ensure the pork chop is evenly coated with the breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Place the breaded pork chops on a plate and let them rest for a few minutes to allow the coating to set.
  6. Heat cooking oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Once the oil is hot, carefully place the breaded pork chops in the skillet, ensuring not to overcrowd the pan. You may need to fry the pork chops in batches depending on the size of your skillet.
  7. Fry the pork chops for about 4-5 minutes on each side or until they are golden brown and cooked through. The internal temperature should reach 145°F (63°C) for safe consumption.
  8. Once cooked, transfer the Parmesan Fried Pork Chops to a plate lined with paper towels to drain any excess oil.
  9. Serve the pork chops hot with your favorite sides and enjoy the crispy, flavorful goodness!

Tip: For extra flavor, you can sprinkle additional grated Parmesan cheese on top of the cooked pork chops before serving.
