I'm happy to be partnering with Ohio Pork Council for this post because I'm a big fan of Ohio pork. I serve it to my family at least once a week. I love it because it's a great, lean protein with lots of flavor and is one of the most versatile proteins I cook with. 

One of my favorite healthy pork chop recipes is Pork Chops Romano in Lemon-Butter Sauce. Made from boneless, pork loin chops pounded thin, it's a quick and easy meal for any day of the week.

If you have a full-service butcher available to you, you can ask for the pork chops to be run through the tenderizer, eliminating the need to pound them thin.

If you don't, no worries, your meat mallet will help make quick work of it. Pounding the  pork chops thin helps move along the cooking process and makes the chops even more tender than they already are.

If you love pork chop recipes, you've come to the right place. While you're here, you might want to check out my easy recipe for Mushroom Pork Chops or my Breaded Oven Baked Pork Chops. Both of these healthy pork chop recipes are quick, easy, and good for you!

The lemon butter pan sauce compliments these pork chops so well and is very easy to make. The recipe calls for wine, but you can use all chicken stock/broth if you prefer.

As far as I'm concerned, lemon and pork are flavors that are meant to be enjoyed together!

Tender center cut boneless pork loin chops are breaded with Panko and Romano cheese and fried crisp, then coated in a lovely lemon butter pan sauce for an easy weeknight dinner!

ingredients:


  • 4 thinly sliced center cut boneless  pork loin chops, pounded thin
  • Salt and pepper, to liking
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 - 2 large eggs, beaten with 1 TBS. water
  • 1 cup unseasoned Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1/2 cup grated Romano cheese

  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or broth
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • chopped parsley, for garnish

instructions:


  1. Season flattened pork chops with salt and pepper. Set aside.
  2. Prepare a dredging station. Put the flour in a shallow dish. Put the eggs and water in another shallow dish. In a third shallow dish, combine the Panko bread crumbs and Romano cheese.
  3. In large non-stick skillet, heat the oil over med-high heat until shimmering. With a piece of pork, dredge in flour, shaking off excess. dip in egg mixture, then coat in Panko-Romano mixture and add to hot pan with oil. Cook on each side until golden brown, about 5 minutes per side, and transfer to dish in a warm oven. Continue process with the rest of pork chops. (For best results, do not over crowd pan. Brown pork chops in batches if you need to )
  4. Once all chops are browned on both sides, wipe pan with paper towel and return to stove. Add wine to pan and bring to boil over med heat. Add in lemon slices and let mixture reduce by half.
  5. Once reduced by half, turn heat down to low and add chicken stock or broth. Heat until warmed through.

  5. If you are making more than 4 pork cutlets, do you double or triple all the other ingredients according to how many chops you make? Anyone know the answer. I am using pork cutlets, not chops.

    1. Hi Linda! You should be able to use pork cutlets and chops interchangeably without needing to adjust the ingredients, since the chops get pounded flat anyway. You may have enough other ingredients to coat 6 chops/cutlets as written IF they aren't too big, otherwise you'll probably need to adjust the amounts of coating and sauce ingredients. Hope this helps! Thanks!
