I wonder if you could make an oven baked schnitzel instead of frying on stove top. Bread and season lightly and cook as if making oven "fried" chicken, then squeeze a bit of lemon on top.

One of the fastest ways to prepare pork cutlets is to saute them in a nonstick skillet. Here's a generic recipe and you could change the seasonings and sauces as desired.

Sauteed Pork Cutlets

Makes 4 servings

4 pork cutlets
freshly ground pepper
4 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons shredded or shaved parmesan
1 tablespoon chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley

1.  Place cutlets between two sheet of parchment paper and pound to 1/8-inch thick using a meat mallet. Season both sides with pepper.

2.  Heat olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add pork cutlets to pan and brown about 2 minutes per side. If pan become dry, drizzle with white wine or broth.

3.  Transfer to a serving plate and drizzle lemon juice over the cutlets and sprinkle with Parmesan and chopped parsley.

4.  Serve with condiment or dipping sauce of choice (grainy mustard, marinara sauce,  pesto sauce etc.)

Hope this gets you started!
