What makes up the breading? 

The pork chops are technically a Pork Milanese recipe so they are breaded in Parmesan cheese! The cheese forms a nice crust and keeps these chops juicy, tender, and perfectly seasoned!

I love that this is a cheese breading because it makes the pork taste so great. The Parmesan adds a tangy and salty flavor that really goes over great with the whole family.

The great thing about Weight Watchers Freestyle is that you can have just about anything as long as you track it and monitor your points! This breaded pork chops recipe serves 8 (I calculated with 8 pork chops), so it comes out to just less then 10 Freestyle Smart Points per serving.

How do I make these cheesy pork chops? 

  1. Heat a heavy skillet over medium-high heat.

  3. Immediately dip pork loin chop in Parmesan cheese, pressing cheese into the pork on both sides.
  4. Carefully add oil to skillet and then cook the pork in small batches, browning until golden on each side, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  5. Remove to paper toweling and keep warm.
  6. Serve the pork chops with fresh lemon slices.

 

Is this a Pork Milanese recipe? 

It is! Pork Milanese is not quite as popular as breaded pork chops so for the average person I decided that these would be more accessible as breaded pork chops. For those of you who know a little bit more about the culinary world this recipe is technically Pork Milanese!

Crispy Pork Milanese is a great recipe that the whole family will love. My kids respond much more excitedly to the idea of a cheese-breaded pork chop than “Pork Milanese.”
