Pork Schnitzel with Dill Cream Sauce

This is another one of those dishes that I have seen several recipes for that I think sound good and then never make them. I was looking for something healthier to make for Phil and I for dinner this week and came across this recipe on Cooking Light. I like any dinner recipe that is ready in under 30 minutes. And this one definitely was. When I first made the cream sauce I wasn't so sure I liked it. I decided to add a little garlic powder and ground red pepper so jazz it up a bit. I still wasn't so sure about it until I put it on the pork. The pairing together was really good. I would recommend this one for a night when you do not want to spend a lot of time on dinner.
