Recipe by Juenessa
READY IN: 35mins




  • In a medium bowl, combine the milk, garlic, white wine, red pepper, paprika, and 1 teaspoon salt and stir well.
  • Add the pork chops and soak at room temperature while assembling the remaining ingredients, at least 30 minutes.
  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F and line a large rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  • Place a lightly greased wire rack on top of the baking sheet and set aside.
  • In a large sealable plastic bag, add the bread crumbs, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, the black pepper, Essence or Italian seasoning, and cheese and shake to combine. Drain the pork chops from the milk mixture, one at a time, and add to the bread crumb mixture.
  • Shake to coat thoroughly. (You may need to press the mixture into the chops with your hands.)
  • Arrange the pork chops on the baking rack and drizzle with the olive oil.
  • Bake for 20-25 minutes, or until cooked through and the breading is crisp and golden.
  • **Cook time does not include marinating the chops for 30 minutes in the milk mixture.
