Panko Crusted Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Dressing

This was so very tasty. Even The Hermit liked them a lot. I definitely like a panko crust much better then just a bread crumbs crust. This was also VERY easy to make so it's for a weekday meal.

I found the recipe while browsing the What's for Dinner? blog. Cynthia has a lot of really great recipes and I'll definitely be back to visit lots!

Panko Crusted Pork Chops with Creamy Herb Dressing

adapted very slightly from original

Makes 2 servings

2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon chili powder
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (omitted because I was out)
1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes

1 teaspoon low-sodium soy sauce
1 large egg white
1/3 cup panko
2 (4-ounce) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (about 1/2 inch thick)
1 teaspoon canola oil
cooking spray

1 tablespoon chopped green onions
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
2 tablespoons sour cream
1 tablespoon milk
1 tablespoon reduced-fat mayonaise
1 teaspoon cider vinegar
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

To prepare pork, preheat oven to 450°.
Combine first 6 ingredients in a shallow dish. Combine soy sauce and egg white in a medium bowl, stirring with a whisk. Place panko in a shallow dish. Dredge pork in flour mixture; dip in egg mixture. Dredge in panko. Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork to pan; cook 1 minute on each side. Place pork on a baking sheet coated with cooking spray. Bake at 450° for 6 minutes or until done.

To prepare dressing, combine onions and the remaining ingredients. Serve dressing with pork.
