My husband and I loved this! Super easy to make and better tasting than Shake n Bake, withiut all the preservatives and salt.

Made these pork chops without the lemon peel ( I didn't have a fresh lemon available) and the juice was from Real Lemon. They turned out really good and the family enjoyed it! I am actually making these again tonight and now I have an actual lemon to juice and peel. I am betting the taste will be better! Thanks!
