Pork Chops Piccata


This is one of my favorite pork chop recipes!  I love piccata - the yummy flavor from the lemons and the salty goodness from the capers - yum yum yum!  The kids enjoyed it too which makes this a double winner in my book.  I served this with broccoli and peas and a delicious Curried Rice (I'll post this recipe later.)  Enjoy!

Ingredients:
1 egg
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2 cup seasoned breadcrumbs
4 boneless pork chops
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 large shallot, chopped
1/2 cup white wine
3/4 cup chicken broth
3 tablespoons capers
2 tablespoons lemon juice

What you do:
In a shallow dish, whisk your egg and mustard ,  In another dish (or on waxed paper) place breadcrumbs.  Dip chops in egg mixture and then coat in crumbs.
Heat butter and oil in a skillet.  Add the chops and cook until golden (about 3 minutes per side.) 
Remove from pan.  Add shallot and saute 1 minute.  Add wine and cook 1 more minute.  Stir in broth, capers and lemon juice.  Add pork chops back to skillet and simmer covered, 3-4 minutes.
