Italian Breaded Pork Chops
A simple answer to the question of what’s for dinner. Italian-seasoned breaded pork chops sauté quickly to a golden brown. Serve with a tomato and cucumber salad with Italian dressing, green peas and crusty breadsticks.
4 pork chops, 3/4-inch thick
1/4 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1 tablespoon freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 large egg, beaten

- Combine crumbs and cheese in shallow bowl.
- Dip chops in egg and coat with crumb mixture.
- Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add chops. Reduce heat to medium and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, turning once, until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 160°F (70°C).
Makes 4 servings.
