6 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
1 teaspoon poultry seasoning, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, divided
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons canola oil
2 1/2 cups fat-free milk


1. Sprinkle both sides of chops evenly with 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Combine flour, remaining 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning, remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt, and remaining pepper in a shallow dish. Dredge pork chops in flour mixture, reserving leftover flour mixture.

2. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork chops, and cook 5 minutes on each side or until done; transfer to a serving platter, and keep warm.

3. Combine remaining flour mixture and milk in a bowl, stirring with a whisk. Add to pan; bring mixture to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly with whisk. Reduce heat; simmer 1 to 2 minutes or until gravy is thickened, stirring constantly with a whisk. Serve gravy over pork chops.
