Print Recipe


  • 4 pork chops thick cut ¾ to 1 inch
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup all purpose flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • ½ teaspoon smoked paprika
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon pepper
  • olive oil for frying


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Line baking sheet with parchment paper. This will help prevent the breading from sticking to the baking sheet.
  • Set up 3 stations, I use pie plates for this.
  • Station 1 - all purpose flour
  • Station 2- mix together eggs and milk
  • Station 3 - mix together panko bread crumbs, paprika, garlic powder, thyme, salt & pepper
  • Dust pork chops with flour, shake off excess.
  • Immediately dip into egg mixture.
  • Next press into bread crumb mixture ensuring a good coating of bread crumbs.
  • Heat olive oil to large frying pan.
  • Brown the pork chops on medium heat just until golden brown on each side.
  • Transfer to baking pan to finish cooking in the oven for thicker cut pork chops.
  • Bake at 350º for 20-30 minutes until internal temperature reaches 145 degrees.
  • If using thinner cut pork chops you can skip baking in the oven and just use the stovetop.
