#TMCKitchenSeries: Breaded Parmesan Chops

I was waiting for my preschooler outside the classroom so I decided to browse my reliable online magazines to keep me busy. Then I came across this simple recipe, which includes breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese and pork chop. It’s been a while since I last set foot on the kitchen and cook something for the family. So I told my ever-reliable yaya that it’s my turn to cook dinner. 

Say hello to Breaded Parmesan Chops. Breaded Parmesan Chops 1It’s pretty easy. Start by seasoning pork chops with salt and pepper. Set aside. In my case, I use butterfly cut because it’s much easier to chew. Also, I cut it in thin strips so it will cook faster.Breaded Parmesan Chops 2Then, prepare three shallow containers. Pour parmesan cheese on Container 1, then beat an egg and a tablespoon of water on Container 2 and combine bread crumbs, basil leaves and a sprinkle of rosemary on Container 3. The reason why I added a tablespoon of water on egg is to prevent the egg from sticking on the pan during frying. Also, I prefer adding basil and rosemary on breadcrumbs for more flavor. Breaded Parmesan Chops 3Coat the pork in this order: parmesan – egg + water – breadcrumbs mixture. Once you’re done, place the coated pork on the freezer for 30 minutes to an hour to keep the coating firm and won’t fall easily during frying. Breaded Parmesan Chops 4When the coating is firm enough, pour oil on the pan and heat it over medium-high heat. Work in batches according to the size of your pan. Make sure not to overcrowd the pan to make sure that the pork will get cooked properly. Cook thoroughly until both sides are well-browned. Breaded Parmesan Chops 5Serve with rice and buttered veggies on the side. 

What do you think mommas? Easy, isn’t it?

    It looks like some kind of nuggets. But i guess it tastes better because of the presence of parmesan. Kids will surely love this recipe.

    Looks yummy and easy to do. Thanks for the tip about putting in freezer first. I always make breaded stuff but don’t put in freezer. Will try that next time : )

      The herbs add more flavor to the pork kaya mas masarap πŸ™‚ You can try oregano and basil together πŸ™‚
