  • 3-6 THIN boneless pork loin chops (pounded thin)
  • 2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • ½ cup finely grated or shredded parmesan cheese
  • cup all purpose flour
  • 1 Tablespoon parsley (dried) (or 3 T fresh parsley)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • ½ teaspoon thyme
  • ½ teaspoon paprika
  • 3-4 eggs (beaten)
  • 3 Tablespoon cooking oil
  • 4-6 lemon wedges (optional)


  • Spread pork on a cutting board or baking sheet, cover with plastic wrap, and pound with a Meat Mallet until pork loins are very thin, even pieces. Season both sides with salt and pepper. 
  • Combine panko, cheese, flour, parsley, garlic salt, thyme and paprika in a medium-sized bowl. Whisk together eggs in a separate bowl. 
  • Dip pork loins, one at a time, into eggs and then into the dry ingredient mixture, coating each side completely. Place coated pork loins on a large plate or baking sheet.
  • Heat cooking oil in a medium-large pan (my absolute fave!). Cook pork loins for 3 minutes on each side and until fully cooked through.



  • For faster cooking, purchase thinly sliced pork chops.
  • If you have extra time, allow pork chops to sit on the counter for 10-20 minutes prior to cooking. Giving the pork a little time to warm up will keep the outside from cooking much faster than the inside.
  • A meat thermometer can be used to measure the pork's temperature. Pork is fully cooked once it reaches an internal temperature of 145° F.
  • For added flavor, squeeze some lemon juice over the cooked pork loin.
