I first tried this recipe a few years ago and it is definitely top notch. I use chicken broth instead of the water, and bring it up to one cup, so I can finish in the oven at 350. Amazing dish, always a hit.
Oh and I think I'd just leave the water completely out of it.
About half way through I realized this was going to be way too salty. 3 teaspoons??? I should have known better. I added a little more water to maybe cut some of the salt, but it didn't help and the texture of the chops was just horrible, kind of mushy. If I ever did this again I'd cut the salt down to 1 tsp and pound the flour mixture into the chops a little bit.
This taste as good as an entree from a good restaurant. It is delicious as is but I would cut back on the salt next time. Will definitely be making again since husband thought it was superb!!!!
Easy, not much watching. The chop was superb - both taste and tenderness. I'd cook the zucchini less; I'll try 15 minutes next time. I only had enough Parmesan for the chops, so I tossed some mozzarella on top at the end and stuck the cover back on for a few minutes - delicious.
