Cooking Light OCTOBER 2004

  • Yield: 4 servings (serving size: 2 pork chops)

Ingredients

  • 2 (1-ounce) slices white bread
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried rubbed sage
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 8 (2-ounce) boneless pork chops (1/4 inch thick)
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 large egg whites, lightly beaten
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable oil
  • Cooking spray
  • 4 lemon wedges

Preparation

Place bread slices in a food processor; pulse 10 times or until coarse crumbs measure 1 cup. Place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish.

Combine salt, pepper, sage, and thyme; sprinkle over both sides of pork. Place flour in a shallow dish; place egg whites in another shallow dish. Dredge pork in flour, dip in egg whites, and dredge in breadcrumbs. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan. Cook 2 1/2 minutes or until lightly browned. Lightly coat surface of chops with cooking spray; turn chops over. Cook 2 1/2 minutes or until done. Serve with lemon wedges.

Note:

Breaded pork cutlets can get soggy while waiting for the pan to heat. Once breaded, place them on a wire rack that's resting over a baking sheet.
