Pork Chops with Mustard Cream Sauce for 4 Points






This is what we had for dinner tonight.  I think I might try adding a little more seasoning to the meat/sauce part.  Wasn't very Flavorful but was still good.  The pineapple-basil salad, however, is now one of my Favorites at only 1 Weight Watcher point, and I'll be making that more Frequently.  You can find the recipe for the zucchini chips here. 

Ingredients: 

4 (4-oz.) boneless center-cut loin pork chops (1/2-inch thick)
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
Cooking spray
1/2 cup fat-free less-sodium chicken broth
2/3 cup fat-free half-and-half
1 Tablespoon Dijon mustard
2 teaspoons lemon juice
Chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Instructions:

Sprinkle both sides of chops with salt and pepper.  Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Coat pan with cooking spray. Add pork and cook 4 to 5 minutes on each side until done. Transfer to a plate and keep warm.

Add broth to pan, scraping pan to loosen brown bits. Stir in half-and-half, mustard, and lemon juice.  Reduce heat and simmer uncovered for 6 minutes or until slightly thick. Spoon sauce over pork. Sprinkle with parsley if desired.

Yields: 4 servings (1 4-oz. chop with 2 Tbsp. sauce)
Points: 4 points
