Lemon & Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops
Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops are a staple in my house and make the rotation at least every 3 weeks if not sooner. By coating the pork chops in creamy Greek yogurt, then a layer of seasoned bread crumbs you create a moisture layer that seals in all the pork juices and also get amazing flavor from the lemon and seasonings. This is one of my kids favorite recipes and is fabulous anytime you can get pork chops on sale for under $2/lb. I always make extra to have enough for lunches and leftovers the next day.

Lemon & Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops Recipe
1. In a pie plate or shallow dish, mix to combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon thyme, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In a separate shallow dish mix to combine flour, lemon zest and remaining spices.
2. Dredge pork chops in flour, then spread with a thin, consistent layer of the yogurt. Dredge in bread crumbs until well coated.
3. Preheat oven to 375° and place a rimmed baking sheet on the middle rack.
4. Preheat a 12-inch skillet on medium-high heat. Add oil and let heat about 1 minute. Cook chops about 2 minutes per side, until light golden brown. Transfer chops to the rimmed baking sheet and bake 12-15 minutes, or until an internal temperature reaches 140°. Rest 5 minutes. Serve.
1. Remove pork chops from the refrigerator about 15 minutes before cooking. Bringing the pork chops to room temperature helps ensure more even cooking.
2. When zesting a lemon, the goal is to remove the very top layer of skin and none of the white pith beneath the skin. All of the bright lemon flavor is in the oils in the skin, but the pith is bitter.
