Common Parmesan preparation: A chicken breast or piece of eggplant is breaded, then topped with mozzarella cheese and baked until good and gooey. The “Parmesan-ed” chicken or eggplant is then served on a bed of marinara sauce, and voila! (Or, how they say it in Italian… viola.) We've done the same here, with a slight twist. Instead of your workaday chicken or soggy eggplant (sorry aubergine!), this meal “Parmesans” a succulent, stupendous pork chop. We're not the first ones to do it, but we bet this'll be the best “Parmesan” you've had.
