  • cup dry seasoned breadcrumbs
  • 4 (4-ounce) boneless, center-cut loin pork chops, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, divided
  • 2 tablespoons drained capers, rinsed
  • teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lemon, peeled, pithed, sliced and seeded
  • Rice (optional)


  1. Place breadcrumbs in a shallow dish, and dredge chops in breadcrumbs, pressing crumbs firmly into pork.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter over medium-high heat. Add chops, and cook 3 minutes each side, or until golden brown. Transfer chops to a platter.
  3. To drippings in skillet, add water, 1 tablespoons parsley, capers, and pepper, and simmer until liquid is reduced by half, about 1 minute. Add lemon slices. Remove from heat, and swirl in remaining 1 tablespoon butter until emulsified. Spoon mixture over chops, sprinkle with remaining parsley, and serve with rice, if desired.
