Recipe Details


Because everything’s better with Parmesan, this week, Chef Michelle is  reimagining one of our favorite Italian dishes: chicken Parmesan. This time, though, she’s swapping out the poultry for pork chops, dredging them in cheesy breadcrumbs, and searing them until golden. The marinara treatment is reserved for roasted Brussels sprouts, which are topped with a heap of mozzarella and baked until the cheese is perfectly melty. By roasting the sprouts on their own, then baking them in the sauce, they get extra tender and soak up even more flavor.

    Preheat oven to 425°F. Rinse all produce. Halve Brussels sprouts lengthwise through roots. Pick half of basil leaves and roughly chop, leaving remaining sprigs whole for Step 4. Peel onion, halve, and thinly slice. Mince garlic.

  2. Roast Brussels sprouts

    While Brussels sprouts roast, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium high-sided ovenproof pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add onion and garlic and sauté, stirring, until softened and fragrant, about 4 minutes. Season with ¼ teaspoon salt

  4. Make tomato sauce

    Add tomato paste to pan with aromatics and cook, stirring, until combined, about 1 minute. Add whole oregano sprigs, bay leaf, tomato purée, and remaining whole basil sprigs and stir to combine. Increase heat to high and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer until sauce has thickened and flavors have melded, 8-10 minutes. Meanwhile, pat pork dry and season with ½ teaspoon salt and pepper

  5. Crust and cook pork

    In a large shallow bowl, whisk 1 egg. On a large plate, combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan. Dip pork in egg, allowing excess to drip off. Dredge in Parmesan breadcrumbs, pressing to adhere. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat. When oil is shimmering, add pork. Cook until crust is golden brown and pork is cooked through and no longer pink, 3-5 minutes per side.

  6. Finish and plate pork
