Lemon-Parmesan Pork Chops

  • ½ c. freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 4-6 boneless center cut pork chops
  • 3 T. cooking fat, divided (I used butter)
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ c. chicken stock
  • 2 T. lemon juice

In a shallow pie plate, combine parmesan cheese, salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, and Italian seasoning. Dredge the pork chops in the parmesan mixture; shake off excess and set aside.

In a large non-stick skillet melt 2 tablespoons of butter (or other cooking fat) over low heat. Cook the pork chops until golden on each side and cooked through – about 5-6 minutes for each side, depending on the thickness of your pork chops (make not to burn the parmesan, if it browns too quickly, lower the heat). Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

In the same skillet, stir in the minced garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Deglaze the skillet with chicken stock and lemon juice and add the remaining tablespoon of butter (or other cooking fat). Cook the lemon garlic butter sauce for a couple of minutes to reduce, then add the pork chops back to the pan to reheat quickly.

Adjust the seasoning as needed and serve while warm.
