I ordered a similar dish a few nights ago and loved it so much I made them the next day. The pork chops were on the bone, which would also work but what I loved was how the pork chops were sprinkled with breadcrumbs on top rather than completely breaded, which gave them some texture – exactly what I was craving. My lighter version eliminates the butter I am sure they drizzled on top, and I used much less crumbs but I loved the results.
