Good flavors and the ready-made breadcrumbs were great for weeknight. I made as directed, but pounded the chops to 1/4" thickness. Also, it was necessary to add about 1 tablespoon of olive oil to the skillet after cooking the pork chops but before cooking the shallots because the bread crumbs had absorbed all of the oil. My heat may have been a little low. Thanks for posting.
