This is a solid recipe. I made these using a cast iron skillet - sear one side, flip and then the skillet goes into the 425 oven. Only cook to about 145 though and then allow to rest. "USDA recommends cooking all whole cuts of meat to 145 °F as measured with a food thermometer placed in the thickest part of the meat, then allowing the meat to rest for three minutes before carving or consuming."
I had 3 pork chops and based on other reviews, cut the breading mixture by 1/3 or so and still had plenty left over. I didn't have any lemons to zest, so I added a splash of lemon juice to the egg. Tasted all right, but had to cook quite a bit longer than suggested and ended up a bit dry. But that's why I don't cook pork; it's a pain to get right. Might try again if I get stupid and buy pork chops again, haha.
Great recipe! My husband loves breaded pork chops and this was perfect for dinner for two. It has a nice combination of flavors and is very simple to make. I followed the recipe exactly and baked them at 375 for 15 minutes vs. 425 to avoid dry pork. Overall, very tasty.
So easy and great tasting. Followed recipe except didn't have lemon zest. Will add to my favorites.
Very nice. I am currently following a strict low g.i. diet, so I left out the flour and the breadcrumbs, and they still came out great. Dipped the chops into just beaten egg, then the seasoned parmesan cheese. The lemon zest is an important lift, I think, to this - keeps it from feeling too heavy. Thanks for the great recipe that I was easily able to alter a bit for my low g.i. needs.
Easy and great tasting... excellent recipe! I've made this twice now and the only adjustment I make is to reduce the breadcrumb/cheese mixture by 2/3, since as written I throw away most of it because it makes too much.
Very very good This recipe is a keeper. Everyone liked it very much.
This was our dinner tonight; it was so delicious!! My hubby said he loved the mix of flavors and the breading mixture was light and stayed nice & crispy. I have a hard time making something that he truely loves, as he is an amateur gourmet chef himself and does most of the cooking in our house. This one is a keeper. The lemon zest, sage and parmasean cheese in the breading was very flavorful!
