Cookin' with Courtney: Italian Pork Chops


This is such a tasty way of preparing pork chops!  It is similar to a chicken parmesan, but just with pork.

Italian Pork Chops


6 pork chops
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, well beaten
1/4 cup water
3/4 cup Italian breadcrumbs {I use just regular breadcrumbs and add in Italian Seasonings to taste}
1/4 cup olive oil
1 {8 oz.} can tomato sauce
6 slices mozzarella cheese


Place each pork chop on a sheet of waxed paper and flatten to 1/4 inch thickness using a meat mallet or rolling pin {I try to just buy very thin pieces of pork chops as to skip this step}.

Dredge porkchops in flour.  Combine egg and water.  Dip each chop in egg mixture and dredge in breadcrumbs.

Saute chops in olive oil on both sides until browned.  Place in 13x9-inch baking dish.  Spoon half of tomato sauce over chops.  Place a slice of cheese on each chop.  Spoon remaining sauce over cheese.

Bake at 425 degrees for 45 minutes.

Serves 4 to 6.
