These Weight Watchers Baked Pork Chops will show you that pork is not off-limits with this way of eating. I love Weight Watchers recipes that my whole family loves and that are not too complicated! This one fits the bill perfectly!!
IS PORK HIGH IN WW POINTS?
Pork is traditionally not considered healthy and can be high in fat depending on what cuts you are eating. A lot of people probably avoid pork if they are trying to lose weight.
I can agree that eating a ton of pork will not aid in weight loss unless you are following a low-carb or keto plan.
The good news is that if you like pork (like me, lol) and you follow the WW plan it is not off the table. Everything is allowed on Weight Watchers! You just need to track it!
A 3 ounce boneless, lean, cooked pork chop is only 3 Points. I don't consider that bad at all for the main dish protein. I love the flavor of pork and it is a nice change to chicken!!
The key is to buy leaner cuts of pork!! You can always ask the butcher to trim it for you.

HOW TO MAKE WW BAKED PORK CHOPS
This baked pork chop recipe has the pork chops seasoned and coated for a very tasty version. These go great with an Asian Style Salad.
STEP ONE: MAKE MARINADE
Start off by preheating the oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with foil and spraying it lightly with nonstick vegetable cooking spray.
Take a bowl and combine the soy sauce, egg, ginger and garlic powder. Whisk these items together so they are well mixed.
Put the whole-wheat breadcrumbs in a separate shallow bowl or plate.
STEP TWO: DIP AND COAT PORK CHOPS
Take each pork chop and dip it in the wet liquid mixture. Make sure it is well covered on both sides with the mixture.
Now dredge the pork chop in the breadcrumbs until well coated. Shake off the extra breadcrumbs.
STEP THREE: BAKE
Place the coated pork chops on a baking sheet that has been lined with foil. Lightly spray the tops of the pork chops with nonstick cooking spray. This will help them crisp up in the oven.
Put the baking sheet in the oven and bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and turn the pork chops over. Bake for another 10 minutes. **Always make sure to cook pork completely to an internal temperature of 145 degrees.
Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
