1/3 cup Italian-seasoned bread crumbs
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 Land O Lakes® Egg, slightly beaten
4 (1/2-inch thick) boneless pork chops
1 pound kale, ribs and stems removed, chopped


Combine bread crumbs and Parmesan cheese in shallow bowl. Place flour and egg each into individual shallow bowls.

Coat each pork chop with flour, shaking off excess. Dip into beaten egg. Press into bread crumb mixture.

Melt 2 Sauté Express® squares in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium-low heat just until bubbles begin to form.

Place pork chops into skillet. Cook, turning once, 10-14 minutes or until pork reaches 145°F and is no longer pink in center and crust is golden brown. Remove pork chops from skillet. Set aside.

Add kale to same skillet. Cook 8-10 minutes or until kale becomes crisp and slightly wilted.

Melt remaining Sauté Express® square in skillet. Toss with kale to coat and season. Cook 2-4 minutes or until kale is desired texture.

Serve pork chops with seasoned cooked kale.
