I had this with chicken rather than the pork chops, ABSOLUTEY WONDERFUL!!! Everyone was making plans when I could fix it again!

This is GREAT, right up there with a dish I had at a restaurant.

This is VERY similar to an oven fried chicken recip I do (can be used for fish too as long as you are careful with cook times) You can also use olive oil instead of the egg mixture if you prefer!

I didn't really like this recipe. THe family love it though. The pecans added a nice taste and crunch to the pork chop but the cheese gave it a somewhat sour taste. I used thin cut pork chops to cut some of the calories. I'll make this again for the family but I think I'll have a salad that night!

Souvlaki can be made with any meat of your choice. Try it with chicken, shrimp or lamb.
Stuffing something with cheese instantly makes it better. If you wrap it in bacon, UNSTOPPABLE.
