Pork Chops with Country Gravy and Mashed Potatoes

from "Cooking Light Super Fast Weeknight Meals"

Pork Chops with Country Gravy and Mashed Potatoes: Serves 4 (7 points per serving)

3/4 tsp. salt, divided
4 ( 4 oz. ) boneless, center cut pork chops ( about 1" thick)
1 tsp butter
1-1/3 c. low fat milk or buttermilk (1%)
3 T. flour
1/4 tsp poultry seasoning
1/4 tsp. black pepper

1 (20 oz.) bag refrigerated mashed potatoes- such as "Simply Potatoes" ( I prefer to make my own, but this is a convenient option)

Heat a large non-stick skillet sprayed with Pam non-stick cooking spray. Add the butter and melt. Add the pork to the pan and cook 3 minutes per side. Remove from pan and keep warm.

Combine the milk and flour in a bowl with a whisk. Add this mixture to the pan, stirring with the whisk. Stir in remaining salt and seasonings. Return pork to pan. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 7 minutes ( I like to cook it longer) or until gravy is thickened and pork is done.

While pork chops cook, prepare the mashed potatoes according to package directions ( or make your own).

The serving size is 1 pork chop with 2/3 c. of mashed potatoes ( a usual serving of mashed potatoes is only 1/2 c.,so enjoy this! ) and 1/4 c. gravy.

We had this with salad and green beans as well as Italian bread. The total for the dinner was 9 points
