Recipe: Skinny Seasoned Pork Chops

Prep time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 14-16 minutes
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 pork chop


  • ⅓ cup reduced-fat grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tablespoon skim milk
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 4 (4-ounce) lean, boneless pork chops


  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and coat a 9x13-inch baking dish with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Place the grated cheese in a shallow dish or plate.
  3. In a second shallow dish, whisk together the egg, milk, ¼ teaspoon salt, and ⅛ teaspoon black pepper.
  4. In a third shallow dish or plate, stir together the bread crumbs and the remaining salt and black pepper.
  5. Dip the pork chops one at a time in the cheese, and gently press to make the cheese adhere to all sides of the pork chop. Next, dip them in the egg, allowing excess to drip off, and lastly, dip them in the breadcrumbs.
  6. Spray the tops of the pork chops with cooking spray, and bake in the prepared baking dish uncovered for 14-16 minutes, or until cooked through and golden.
