aunt squishy's teryaki panko pork chops

a recipe by
Lynsee Gilbert

Tangy teriyaki marinated pork chops fried with panko breading go great with pretty much any side dishes and provide an easy wow factor. HINT: Save money and buy a pork loin, then cut it into chops. Bone-out chops are pound-for-pound significantly more expensive than a whole loin.
