- 1 large egg, beaten

- Combine nuts, lemon peel, garlic, bread crumbs and salt in shallow bowl.
- Season chops with salt and pepper. Dip each chop in egg then nut mixture and transfer to baking pan.

- Return to baking pan and bake for about 20 minutes.
Kinda in the middle for me, I thought it was nice, but not aqnything special. Maybe because I wasn't really very hungry. Not so bad that I won't make it again :-) Recipenapped for the AUS/NZ Swap 34 November 2009.
These chops were yummy thnks Vicki. I do fish fillets in a similar coating and we really enjoy it. Lucky I made a last minute check of the recipe as I lamost forgot the lemon peel which I think is a really important part of the recipe.
