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. For thick pork chops, bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes. For regular thickness, cook at 350 for 20-25 minutes.
