1/2 cup Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1/4 cup grated fresh Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops
2 large egg whites, lightly beaten
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons minced fresh parsley (optional)


Combine first 5 ingredients in a medium bowl. Place pork chops between 2 sheets of plastic wrap; pound to 1/4-inch thickness using a meat mallet or small heavy skillet. Dip chops in egg white; dredge in breadcrumb mixture.

Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until butter melts. Add chops, and cook 3 minutes on each side or until browned. Drizzle with lemon juice. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
