2

Dip chops in egg whites, then in breadcrumb mixture, turning to coat both sides. Place chops on broiler pan. Broil 4 inches from heat source 6 to 7 minutes per side or until an instant-read thermometer registers 160°F. Remove from broiler and let stand 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a small bowl combine honey and mustard. Drizzle over pork, and serve with steamed broccoli.

Make it a Meal:
Serve with steamed brown rice or quinoa blend.

Culinary Talking Points:
Dijon mustard is prepared mustard blended with white wine or verjus. Mustard is a great emulsifier. When used to make a vinaigrette, mustard prevents the oil and vinegar from separating.
