Place the flour and Parmesan cheese in separate bowls. Place the egg into a third bowl and beat.
Add the garlic powder, pepper, and salt to the Parmesan cheese and mix well.
Coat one pork chop in flour.
Completely dip the pork chop in the egg and then coat all sides with the Parmesan cheese mixture. Place onto a plate while preparing the remaining pork chops.
Heat a large skillet just under medium-high heat, and add the canola oil.
Place the pork chops into the skillet. Cook for 4-5 minutes before turning over to cook an additional 4-5 minutes on the other side. Add more canola oil, if necessary. The center of each pork chop should read 145°F when measured with a meat thermometer.
Remove pork chops from pan and place onto a serving plate. Let rest for 3 minutes before serving.
