Recipe

Although normally I reach for a pounded chicken breast for this dish, last week I was looking for a way to use up some leftover pork chops and decided a crust of Parmesan, Panko breadcrumbs, and herbs was the perfect solution. The dish is relatively simple to make and can be baked in the oven or lightly fried in a skillet with a hint of olive oil. For low carb dieters, you could substitute in some almond flour for the Panko or just use all Parmesan cheese instead. Paired with a simple green salad and some lemon wedges, it makes a delicious meal.
