Mix Parmesan cheese, bread crumbs, paprika, parsley, pepper and garlic powder and place on a plate.
Dip pork chops in the mixture (making sure mixture sticks) and sear in a pan of olive oil on medium-high heat. Sautee for 5 minutes on each side.
Place pork chops in a glass baking dish (making sure to leave 1 inch around each chop) and cook according to thickness. NOTE: For more crispy pork chops, bake on a greased wire rack over a baking sheet.
Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes (or when internal temperature reaches 145 degrees).
