Ingredients:  
1/3 c. all-purpose flour, for dredging
2 large eggs, beaten to blend
1 1/4 c. plain dried bread crumbs
2/3 c. grated Parmesan cheese
2 tsp. dried basil
1 tsp. dried thyme
4 8-ounce center cut pork loin chops (each about one inch thick)
1 tsp. salt, plus more to taste
1 tsp. freshly ground pepper
2 tbsp. butter
1/3 c. vegetable oil
1 lemon, cut into wedges

Directions:
Directions:
Place the flour in a wide, shallow bowl. Place the eggs in another wide, shallow bowl. Mix the bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, basil and thyme in the a third wide shallow bowl.

Using a meat mallet, pound the pork chops until they are 1/4 inch thick. Sprinkle the pork chops with 1 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Dredge the chops in the flour to coat lightly, then dip the chops into the beaten eggs, allowing the excess egg to drip off. Finally coat the chops with the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere. Set the pork chops in a single layer on a baking sheet. (The pork chops can be prepared up to this point 4 hours ahead. Cover and refrigerate.)
Preheat the oven to 150F. Line a baking sheet with a rack. In a large, heavy pan with high sides, melt the butter in the oil over medium heat until hot. Carefully place two pork chops in the oil mixture and cook until golden brown, about 3 minutes per side. Transfer the chops to the baking sheet and sprinkle with salt to taste. Keep the cooked chops warm in the oven. Repeat with the remaining 2 chops. Serve with lemon wedges.

Personal Notes:
After dinner one night my son, Michael said, " Mom that was the best chicken I have ever had." I smiled and said thank you, then told him it wasn't chicken he had just eaten, but pork chops. From then on these have been know as "Chicken Chops" in our house.
