Flavorful Breaded Pork Chops Recipe

2 T. flour
4 egg whites
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
1/2 tsp. balsamic vinegar
1/8 tsp. hot pepper sauce
3/4 c. bread crumbs
3 T. Parmesan cheese
1/2 tsp. ground thyme
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. paprika
6 boneless pork loin chops (1/2 in. thick)

Place flour in shallow dish.  In another shallow dish, beat egg whites, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, and hot sauce.  In a third dish, combine bread crumbs, cheese, and seasonings.  Coat pork chops with flour.  Dip into egg mixture, then coat with bread crumb mixture.  Place on wax paper lined cookie sheet in a single layer.  Place in freezer until frozen solid.  Once completely frozen, place in gallon size freezer bag and return to freezer.

Serving Day:
Thaw in fridge.  Place chops in greased baking dish.  Bake, uncovered, at 350 for 25-28 min. or until juices run clear.  If you bake these from freezer (which I'm sure you can do), please comment how long they took.

2 c. shredded cheddar and Monterrey jack cheese
14 oz. your favorite barbecue sauce (I use Montgomery Inn.)  

Place pizza crust on cardboard pizza round. Cover with plastic wrap.  Cover with heavy duty aluminum foil.  Label and freeze.  Place chicken in quart size Ziploc bag.  Place cheese in sandwich size Ziploc bag.  Place both bags into gallon size Ziploc freezer bag. Label.  Freeze.

Serving Day:
Thaw all ingredients, except crust.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Unwrap crust.  Top pizza crust with sauce.  Spread evenly over crust.  Sprinkle chicken in an even layer over sauce. Sprinkle cheese evenly over pizza.  Slide off of cardboard and onto oven rack.  Bake 10 minutes or until the underside of the crust is cooked to your liking. Enjoy!
