Ultra Crunchy Pork Chops

2 boneless center-cut pork chops, 6 to 8 ounces each, 3/4 to 1 inch thick, trimmed of excess fat
1 cup bread crumbs
2 medium garlic cloves, minced (about 1 tbsp)
2 tablespoons olive oil
Ground black pepper
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tablespoons thyme
1 tablespoon parsley
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large egg whites
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
Lemon wedges

Preheat oven to 425. Toss bread crumbs with salt, pepper, Parmesan, thyme, and parsley. Place flour in pie plate. In second pie plate, whisk egg whites and mustard until combined. Spray baking sheet with non-stick spray. Season chops with pepper. Dredge 1 pork chop in flour, shake off excess. Using tongs, coat with egg mixture; let excess drip off. Coat all sides of chop with bread crumb mixture, pressing gently so that thick layer of crumbs adheres to chop. Transfer breaded chop to pan. Repeat with remaining chop. Bake until instant-read thermometer inserted in center of chops registered 150 degrees, 17 to 25 minutes. Let rest on rack 5 minutes before serving with lemon wedges.
2 servings.
