Pork Chops with Mustard-Caper Sauce

Prep time 8 mins
Cook time 14 mins
Yield 4 servings (serving size: 2 pork chops and about 2 tablespoons sauce)
Using thin-cut pork chops speeds up the cook time, but four (4-ounce) boneless pork loin chops will work, too. Increase the cooking time to five minutes on each side.

Ingredients

  • 8 (2-ounce) boneless thin-cut pork loin chops
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper, divided
  • Cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup chopped shallots
  • 1 cup dry white wine or fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley
