  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Mix bread crumbs, parsley, garlic, lemon zest, and black pepper in a large bowl; rub onto pork chops to coat completely.
  3. 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.
  4. 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!
