Busy Day Pork Chops

The name says it all – perfect for a busy-day. Not only are these pork chops yummy, the prep work is minimal and they don’t require much attention, aside from a quick flip about 15 minutes into the baking time. I’d even be willing to bet you’ve got all the ingredients in your kitchen right now.

I found this recipe on Taste of Home while searching for diabetic friendly main dishes. (Doctor was concerned about blood sugar levels, and I went on a health kick – didn’t last long). When I told the family we were going to try a pork chop recipe that was healthy and diabetic friendly, they didn’t look happy. But those looks of skepticism turned into smiles with the very first bite.  It’s now popular in our house – simply because these chops taste good. The fact that they are diabetic friendly is just a nice bonus.

Busy-Day Pork Chops
1/4 cup milk
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon pepper
4 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
Cooking spray

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Coat a baking pan lightly with cooking spray, set aside.

Pour milk into a pie plate or a shallow bowl, set aside.

On a sheet of waxed paper, combine the cheese, bread crumbs, salt, garlic powder and pepper.

Dip pork chops in milk, then coat with crumb mixture.

Place pork chops on baking pan; spritz chops with cooking spray. Bake for about 30 minutes, turning mid-way through.

Enjoy!
