Finding Thyme to Cook

Thyme is of the Essence

Pork Milanese with Lemon Parmesan Rice

Pork Milanese and Lemon Parmesan Rice

Adapted from Giada de Laurentiis

Since I use chicken cutlets for many of my recipes because they are so quick and easy, when I saw this recipe, I knew it would be perfect.  It cooks up quickly and it’s a nice change from chicken and the Lemon Parmesan Rice is the perfect side dish!!
  • 1 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 small pork cutlets
  • flour for dredging
  • salt and pepper
  • 2-3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • lemon wedges

Put a little flour in a shallow bowl.

In another bowl, crush Panko crumbs slightly and stir in cheese.

In a third bowl, lightly beat eggs.


Salt and pepper pork and dredge in flour.  Dip in eggs.

Coat with bread crumbs, pressing to make sure they adhere to cutlets.


Refrigerate for 10 minutes – this is important!!!

Heat butter and oil in large skillet over medium high heat.  Add pork and cook to until golden brown – about 3-4 minutes.


Carefully turn to cook on other side – about 3-4 minutes.
