Pork schnitzel (easy)

Yield: 4 Servings

Measure Ingredient
4 Boneless pork chops, 1/4 in thick (3 oz each)
½ cup Corn flake crumbs or cracker crumbs
1 Egg; lightly beaten
2 teaspoons 2 to 4 tsp olive oil; divided
⅓ cup Lemon juice
¼ cup Chicken broth

Preheat oven to 200 degrees F. Place baking sheet or ovenproof platter in oven. Trim fat from pork chops; discard. Place pork cops between layers of waxed paper; pound with smooth side of mallet to ⅛ to ¼ inch thick. Place crumbs in medium bowl. Dip 1 pork chop at a time in egg; gently shake off excess. Dip in crumbs to coat both sides. Place breaded pork chops in single layer on plate. Sprinkle with pepper.

Heat 2 tsp oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add pork chops in single layer. Cook 1 minute or until golden brown and pork is no longer pink in center. Transfer to platter in oven. Repeat to cook remaining pork chops, adding oil as needed to prevent meat from sticking to pan. Transfer to platter in oven.

Remove skillet from heat. Add lemon juice and broth. Stir to scrape cooked bits from pan bottom. Return to heat; bring to a boil, stirring constantly, until liquid is reduced to 3 to 4 tablespoons.

Remove platter from oven. Pour liquid over meat.
