Thyme Marinated Pork Chops & Potatoes Lyonnaise

(originally made 2/23/2006)

Tried a couple new recipes today. The pork chop one was good, I lost some of the coating, stuck to the pan. DH is normally a Shake and Bake only guy, but he said these are keepers.

The potatoes came from the Cooking Light website. I used the mandoline to slice the potatoes to 1/4", made it fast and easy. Nice change from mashed or baked potatoes.

Thyme-Marinated Pork Chops

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1/2 cup white wine or chicken broth
2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves -- divided
2 garlic cloves -- minced
2 bone-in pork loin chops(I used 3 boneless chops)
1/2 cup soft bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 teaspoons olive oil

In a resealable plastic bag, combine the wine or broth, 1 tablespoon thyme and garlic; add pork. Seal bag and shake to coat; refrigerate for 30 minutes. Turn and refrigerate 30 minutes longer.

Drain and discard marinade. In a shallow bowl, combine the bread crumbs, salt, pepper and remaining thyme. Coat pork chops on both sides with crumb mixture. In a nonstick skillet over medium heat, cook pork in oil for 8 minutes on each side or until golden brown and a meat thermometer reads 160°. Yield: 2 servings.
