Do you need a hot, quick and satisfying meal after a long day at work? Look no further, I have the recipe for you.

Busy-day pork chops adapted from Taste of Home:

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus more for sprinkling on top
  • 1/4 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless pork loin chops (4 oz each)

Preheat oven to 375F.

Place milk in a bowl.

In another bowl, place bread crumbs, cheese, salt, garlic powder and pepper. Stir to combine.

Dip pork chops in milk then coat with bread crumb mixture. Place chops on a baking sheet coated with non-stick cooking spray. Spritz top of chops with cooking spray. Bake 9-11 minutes on each side or until meat thermometer reads 160F. When turning pork chops over, sprinkle top side of chop with a little more parmesan cheese. Serve hot. And perhaps with a side of roasted sweet potatoes.
