Although normally I reach for a pounded chicken breast for this dish, last week I was looking for a way to use up some leftover pork chops and decided a crust of Parmesan, Panko breadcrumbs, and herbs was the perfect solution. The dish is relatively simple to make and can be baked in the oven or lightly fried in a skillet with a hint of olive oil. For low carb dieters, you could substitute in some almond flour for the Panko or just use all Parmesan cheese instead. Paired with a simple green salad and some lemon wedges, it makes a delicious meal.

Hi! I'm excited to make these. Do you use shredded parmesan or the grated kind in the green bottle? Thank you!

Either will work fine! Usually I look for grated Parmesan but the in cheese/deli area since i find it has more flavor than the "green" bottle variety :)

Made the low carb version with almond meal instead of the panko; chops were moist and flavorful. Will definitely m are this again.

So happy to hear you enjoyed them! Love making them with almond flour for a low carb or gluten free option.
