Zesty Pork Chops Recipe

Zesty Pork Chops Recipe

My own creation, this recipe is light, flavorful and simple to make. I sometimes top these pork chops with breadcrumbs and shredded mozzarella for the last 10 minutes of baking. They're a favorite with family and friends. —Cheryl Boak, Rothesay, New Brunswick
