panko pork chops

This recipe has quickly become one of our favorites. It has great flavor, it’s relatively healthy, it’s easy to prepare, and we almost always have all of the ingredients on hand. What more could you ask for? I have made this several times since we first tried and will be making it again and again.

Panko Crusted Pork Chops

2 teaspoons whole wheat flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion flakes
1/4 ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 large egg white
1/3 cup whole-wheat panko
2 4-ounce center cut pork chops
1 teaspoon olive oil or canola oil
Cooking spray

1 tablespoon chopped green onions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons fat-free sour cream
1 tablespoon fat-free milk
1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonnaise
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

Preheat the oven to 450 degreen F. Combine the first six ingredients in a shallow dish. Whisk the soy sauce and egg white in a different medium bowl. Place the panko in another shallow dish.

Dredge the pork in the flour mixture, then dip into the egg mixture, followed by dredging in the panko drumbs. Heat the oil in the large skillet over high heat and add the pork to the pan. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side. **note: depending on the size of the pork chop I find that they are cooked through after this step. If you have a thicker chop than you will want to continue**

Line and/or spray a baking sheet with cooking spray and place the pork chops on it. Bake for 7-8 minutes or until cooked through.

    I’ll have to look for that whole wheat panko – sounds great and I would assume it adds a slight nutty flavor!

    I LOVE this recipe. I have been making it ever since I saw it in Cooking Light last year. It’s so good, and totally does not seem like a light recipe.

    Haha, I am such a dork! I was on here looking at your pumpkin blondie recipe and started browsing around (even though I have you in GR). I just responded to a recipe I had already commented on months ago. Sorry about that! :o)
