Breaded Pork Chops with Warm Apple-Cabbage Slaw
Think of this as a new, healthier (and less messy!) take on pan-fried pork chops and applesauce. We bread these low-calorie, low-fat chops in whole-wheat panko and spray them with cooking spray to get them crispy in the oven. We prefer to use McIntosh or Red Delicious apples, because they soften quicker.
