Pork Chops with Creamy Gravy

I was in the mood for some comfort food yesterday and was looking for something I could make with ingredients I had on hand and that would also be relatively low in points. This is what I came up with. I hope you like it!

serves 8 ( 7 points +)

  • 1 egg
  • ½ c. skim milk
  • 1 tsp. dried parsley
  • 1 tsp. dried thyme
  • 1-¼ c. Panko Japanese bread crumbs
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 8 boneless pork chops ( 4 oz. each)
  • 3 T. light butter, divided
  • ¼ c. flour
  • ⅓ c. fat-free beef broth
  • 1-½ c. 2% milk

In a shallow bowl, whisk together egg and skim milk.
In another bowl, combine Panko, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper.

Heat a large nonstick skillet or cast iron pan. Add 2 T. butter and melt.
Dip pork chops in egg mixture, then coat in Panko mixture. Place in pan and cook for 4 minutes per side or until browned.

Transfer pork to a large baking pan coated with nonstick spray. Bake, uncovered, at 425 for 15-20 minutes or until no longer pink.

Meanwhile, melt remaining 1 T. butter in pan. Stir in flour. Gradually add beef broth and then milk. Bring to a boil, while continually whisking. Cook until thickened. Serve with pork chops.


  1. I just saw your blog on pinterest, and I have to say thank you! It is bloggers like you who keep me on track, even when I feel too lazy to cook. I have lost 34 pounds in 11 weeks, and your blog is definitely getting added to my favorites!

  2. I just joined WW about two weeks ago, and I planned all of my meals from your blog! This pushed me to actually do it...All of your meals have been delicious and cannot wait to try more! Thanks for the push I needed (to know if I did it, there were yummy meals I could still have)!!!

    1. Glad you like the site and glad you have enjoyed some recipes so far! You will do great!

  3. Hello! We loved this meal! When I put it in my WW calculator it said it was 10 points instead of 7. Is that right or am i doing it wrong? Thanks!

  4. Can you give me a breakdown of the nutritional facts? Calories, fat, carbs, etc.?

  5. Are there nutritional facts available for this? Or how many smart points is it?

    1. It has 7 points +, but I can't find any more info than that and haven't received an answer to my question on the nutritional breakdown.


I love hearing from people who visit my blog! Let me know that you stopped by and let me know if you try a recipe!
