Parmesan Crusted Pork Chops | Healthy and Quick Dinner Recipe

Growing up we had pork chops quite often…but I never really liked them. It wasn’t that I didn’t like them, I was just never impressed. The hubs was always a fan of Pork Chops so we made them a few times and agreed that there had to be away to make them better. Well, after much experimentation, we found a delicious, flavorful, healthy, and quick way to cook up these bad boys! Just grab your cast iron skillet and get ready to fall in love with pork chops all over again :)

The main reason these turn out so incredibly delicious and moist is the cooking method. You NEED a cast iron pan. If you don’t have one, I promise you won’t regret your purchase. We have this one and love it!

I always make sure we have a green vegetable with our dinner and the asparagus paired perfectly. I also make the actual best mashed potatoes...but I don’t have the recipe on the blog because it’s definitely a “wing it” type situation… Maybe one day I’ll figure out how much of everything I put in :)
