So here is that recipe for melt in your mouth panko crusted pork chops. Don’t the colors of the pork chop resemble the golden hues of autumn?
• 3 cups water
• 3 tablespoons salt
• a bay leaf
• and some peppercorns
For coating your pork chops:
• 2 large eggs
• 3 tablespoons milk
• 1/2 cup grated Parmesan
• 1 cup gluten free panko style bread crumbs
• 4 boneless center-cut pork chops
• and 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil for frying
Pro tip and recipe notes
For the juiciest chops, the most important tip that I can give you is to brine the chops. Just soak the meat in salt water for at least an hour. This traps the moisture in the meat. Rinse the salt water off and pat dry when finished brining. You’ll be left with tenderized, juicy chops.
*Free printable recipe card is available at the end of the post.
Now, the pork chops are dredged in parmesan cheese, then egg and finally crunchy panko breadcrumbs. The breadcrumbs trap steam in the meat keeping it juicy on the inside.
Heat oil in a large skillet until hot, but not smoking. Cook your breaded chops until golden on each side.
Happy cooking! And if you have any questions, please reach out to me in the comments or shoot me an email and I’ll respond ASAP!

Great photos, and the pork chops look great! I miss fall colors; it’s so pretty.
Whenever we consider moving to a more tropical area, the first thing I think of is how much I will miss the autumn.
I think it’s the parmesan that makes these pork chops so tasty! 🙂

Thank you for sharing those beautiful scenes. The crust on the pork chops looks really appetizing.
You’re welcome. And the crust locks in the juices; keeps the meat moist. Yum.

I can’t have egg or cheese, how do I make this recipe without both. I want to bake in the oven.
Hi Patty, Great question. I have a few ideas for you. We need the breadcrumbs to stick to the chops. So…
#1 Swap the cheese with gluten-free flour. (You may want to flavor the flour with a tablespoon of paprika.)
#2.Dip the floured chops in either yogurt or gluten-free dijon mustard before coating with the breadcrumbs.
Either of these flavors would go nicely with pork.
I have one more tip that I’m adding to this recipe now. For the juiciest pork chops, brine them in salt water for an hour before cooking.
I hope this helps. Panko bread crumbs are crunchy good. 🙂
