Pork chop lunch

I'm planning out the menu for this week. I bought a package of 3 pork chops. I'll use 2 for dinner and will have one leftover. What can I make with one pork chop for a lunch to feed 2 people?
Thanks very much!

Fry some rice and add the pork diced up. MMMM.

Yeah - I was thinking something Asian, too - like Wonton soup or sweeet-n-sour pork.

Ooooooooooooo! Michael, great idea! Corazon, if you have some chicken broth you can toss in the diced up pork chop with some peapods and green onions. I toss my leftover potstickers in too. YUM.

I agree, a stir fry is the best way to use meat for one to feed a table full.

dh isn't a big fan of Asian foods. Sounds tasty to me though.

Maybe cut into julienne type strips, marinate in a teriyaki sauce for a tad, saute and add to peanut butter noodles.

You could also brown the chop, then mince it up and add it to some spaghetti sauce. I use country-style pork ribs in one of my spaghetti sauces. It's very good and gives the sauce a little different flavor.

Corazon, I'd just dice the chop add some veggies and make a pot pie out of it...Add a salad and dessert, bingo...

OOPS, sorry, was writing my post when you posted. How about julienning (is that a word?) or cutting into chunks and making a sort of picadillo with pork instead of ground beef. Serve over rice topped with a fried egg.
