I can't personally attest for these pork chops because I ended up not eating them the night that I made them... What?? Yeah you read that right - I was jazzed to try these pork chops... you all know how much I love pork chops in the first place and my sister-in-law raved about them! So, I knew that I wanted to try them and they were on the schedule the night that my second son made his goal that we had set from his behavior chart from school.
SIDE NOTE: We have been really working hard with him to make better choices and keep his impulses in check in the classroom. So, trying to go for the positive reinforcement method, I made a chart for him to achieve "supper with mommy" once he had so many good days. I tried like crazy to talk him into breakfast the next day, but that wasn't happening! :)
Back to the recipe - so, the hubs and the rest of the kids got to have these pork chops. I figured that I would be able to try a bite when we got home - I mean I made 8 chops and there were only 4 of them eating... My 8 year old and my 5 year old both had 2 1/2 chops EACH!! What the heck?? Obviously they were super excited about this recipe and I am definitely going to have to make these again since I didn't even get the chance to try even a little bit!!
Parmesan Baked Pork Chops
(recipe found on pinterest via justapinch.com)
4 boneless pork chops, 1/2" thick
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup italian bread crumbs
1 teaspoon black pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
On a plate combine the last 4 ingredients. Rub the pork chops with olive oil and then coat each one in the cheese mixture. Press the mixture over the pork chops to make sure they are well covered in it. Line a pan with tin foil and spray with cooking spray. Place the pork chops on the pan and bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes.
