4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops
1 egg white, lightly beaten
1/2 cup panko (Japanese breadcrumbs)
1/4 cup (1 ounce) grated Asiago cheese
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1. Place pork between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to an even thickness (about 1/4 inch) using a meat mallet or a small heavy skillet.

2. Place egg white in a shallow dish. Combine panko, cheese, salt, and pepper in a shallow dish. Dip pork in egg white; dredge in panko mixture, pressing gently with fingers to coat.
