Italian Panko and Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops

I love quick and simple recipes that taste fantastic and this is one of them.  I combined some Parmesan cheese with Italian seasoned panko crumbs together to make a tasty crust that made these pork chops really delicious.  The pork turned out moist and tender on the inside and crunchy and flavorful on the outside.  We all, kids included, gobbled up these chops and enjoyed each and every bite.  You can’t beat a 6 ingredient recipe that tastes this great!!

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees.  Line a baking sheet with tin foil then coat with cooking spray.
Combine the Italian seasoned panko crumbs with the Parmesan cheese and mix well.  Dip the pork chops in the beaten egg before coating both sides of each chop evenly with the panko mixture.  Place on the baking sheet then season with sea salt and freshly cracked pepper, to taste.

Place the baking tray in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until a meat thermometer reaches 145 degrees.  Turn the oven to broil and cook for a minute or two (watching very carefully) so the top crust gets golden brown.  Remove from the oven and let the meat rest for 5 minutes before serving.  Enjoy.
