Carmina Jean de Leon, 33, noticed her hubby getting bored with his usual baon of breaded pork chop and rice. She decided it was time to revamp her old recipe and add one more ingredient—basil. Tasty and easy to make, this recipe should please lunch-packing husbands and kids everywhere.

1 kilo pork chops
3 tablespoons dried basil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 egg, beaten
1 cup breadcrumbs
oil for frying

2 Rub each slice of pork chop with the basil mixture.
3 Heat oil in pan.

5 Fry until golden brown. Best served with colelslaw on the side, hot rice. and tomato ketchup.
Substitution tip: No pork chop? Liempo would make a good substitute. Wanna spice it up a bit? Just add 1/2 teaspoon cayenne powder to the basil-salt-pepper mixture before rubbing it on the chops.
