Asiago-Crusted Pork Chops

The entree with broccoli and a tossed salad is under 300 calories.

Ingredients for 4 servings:

4 (4-oz) boneless center cut loin pork chops

1 egg white, beaten

1/2 cup breadcrumbs

1/4 cup grated Asiago cheese

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

1 T. olive oil

4 lemon wedges

2 tsp. chopped fresh thyme

Place pork between 2 sheets of plastic wrap and pound to an even thickness using a meat mallet.  Place egg white in a shallow dish and dip pork.  Dredge in mixture of the rest of the ingredients until pork is coated.  Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat.  Cook pork for 4 minutes on a side until lightly browned and cooked through thoroughly.  Squeeze a lemon wedge over each chop and sprinkle with thyme.

For the broccoli– microwave according to package directions or steam.  Make a low calorie sour cream sauce with 1/3 fat free sour cream, 2 T. nonfat milk, and 1 tsp. Dijon mustard.  Drizzle broccoli with sauce.

    A common misconception is that home cooked food takes too long. This delicious meal really does take just 15 minutes to prepare. Plus, it is elegant without being pricey.
