Jaeger Schnitzel with Thyme and Parsley

Although in traditional German fare (my heritage) this dish is made with veal cutlets, I found beautiful boneless pork center cut chops that translated beautifully. These should be 1/2 thick or less. I decided to coat with Panko crumbs and herbs (not German!), which keeps them moist and tender. Top with the traditional Mushroom Gravy, or my favorite- homemade applesauce and a dollop of Sour Cream.

    Combine all ingredients in large glass bowl. Cover with wax paper. Cook in microwave on high 8-11 minutes or until apples are soft, stirring once half way through cooking. Mash apples until slightly chunky; serve warm or chilled. Yields 5 1/2 cups.
