Heat the oven to 200°C/392°F and heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a cast iron frying pan. You will transfer the pan into the oven so if you don't have a cast iron pan, use a regular frying pan but prepare a baking sheet lined with baking paper and set aside.
In a shallow bowl mix together the breadcrumbs, parmesan, mixed herbs, garlic powder and salt & pepper.
Press each pork chop in the mixture so that they are coated well on both sides and place directly into the hot frying pan.
Cook for 4-5 minutes each side until the coating is crispy. Transfer the pan to the oven (or transfer the pork chops to the prepared baking sheet and place that in the oven) and cook for a further 10 minutes or until the pork chops are cooked through.
