Lightly-breaded pork chops cook quickly for a fast and delicious weeknight dinner. Serve with orzo and green beans.
1/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/8 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
3 tablespoons preshredded fresh Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 large egg white, lightly beaten
4 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
2 teaspoons olive oil
1/2 cup fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
1 tablespoon dry white wine
1/4 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 teaspoons capers, rinsed and drained
How to Make It
Combine flour and salt in a shallow dish. Place breadcrumbs, cheese, and pepper in a shallow dish; place egg white in another shallow dish. Dredge pork in flour mixture, dip in egg white, and dredge in breadcrumb mixture. Coat pork with cooking spray.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 4 minutes on each side or until done. Remove from pan; keep warm. Add broth and remaining ingredients to pan, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Cook 2 minutes or until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 2 minutes). Serve with pork.
My husband and I loved this recipe! It is my favorite pork chop recipe yet! I did make a few changes because I was lacking ingredients: I exchanged the breadcrumbs for equal parts pankos with oregano & basil to taste. Then I did not have fresh Parmesan, so I substituted equal parts HEB Romano Cheese. Yummy.
My family absolutely loves this recipe. They request it every week and I've also made it with white fish and chicken. My suggestion is to keep the juice from the capers, the natural salt makes a difference! Also add some extra lemon juice, it blends nicely with the wine and broth.
Taste great and easy to prepare. I did make a few minor changes; I was out of white wine, so I used cooking sherry that I had on hand, doubled the sauce and added a little corn starch to thicken it up a little. I served with couscous and steamed green beans; good week night meal.
Made this last night. It was delicious! I added some garlic to the sauce and some cornstarch while it was cooking to make more of a gravy out of it. I also made the sauce early in the day and let the ingredients marry together. This was very good for a healthier meal. The only thing I would do differently is bake it next time instead of pan-fry. The hubby really loved the sauce! Tasted like Piccata...
