Try using the Italian style bread crumbs an then add grated Parmesan cheese to the breading. I know what your Mom was trying to make since this s very Italian and very delicious. It is missing a certain flavor and this is the correction that I am sure you will know what I mean. I would also like to add that you can use chicken breasts which have been pounded down to a cutlet with a meat mallet and then bread them in this mixture and lightly fried in a little olive oil and then placed in a casserole dish. Then you add some good spaghetti sauce of choice and then top that with slices or shreds of mozzarella cheese until it is melted in a 350 degree oven let's say about 10 minutes or so.

The coating sort of fell off and was mushy. I guess I expected crispy. But it had a good taste. The chops were OK. I wouldn't make it again.
