Very tasty but i agree with another reviewer that there is too much flour. Next time I will cut the amount in half

Very, VERY good!!! made with the vegetable and parley pilaf... I just need to time things better to make both, but everyone loved both dishes!!!

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 10, 2013

I used chicken broth instead of wine but otherwise made exactly as written. The chops were nice and tender and the flavor was mild and good but next time I would cut back on the flour or add more liquid. As soon as the flour mixture hit the pan it turned into glue. Luckily I had plenty of broth on hand and added some more until it had a gravy like consistency.
