Italian Breaded Pork Chops

These Italian breaded pork chops were easy to make and delicious for a quick weeknight dinner.  The pork was moist and the breading was nice and crispy.  By dredging the pork chops in flour first, it helps bind the egg wash along with the bread crumbs better.  The flavor in these Italian breaded pork chops is great but I pretty much love anything Italian.  I served the pork chops with my cheesey mashed potatoes.  Add in a side of veggies and you have a complete meal.  Enjoy!

Italian Breaded Pork Chops

4 center cut pork chops
1 egg
½ to 1 cup Italian bread crumbs
½  to 1 cup flour
¼  teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon black pepper
¼ teaspoon garlic, granulated (or powder)
2 tablespoons olive oil


In a small bowl, beat egg.

In another small bowl, mix flour, salt, pepper and garlic.

In a third small bowl, add bread crumbs.

Dip each pork chop in seasoned flour mixture.   Shake lightly to remove any excess flour.

Next, dip floured pork chop in beaten egg.

Lastly, dip pork chop in bread crumbs to coat evenly on both sides.

Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.

Place coated pork chops in skillet and cook for 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
