    1. Pound pork circles between pieces of plastic wrap to flatten to 1/4 inch thickness. Sprinkle both sides of medallions with lemon juice. Combine flour and poultry seasoning in shallow dish. Coat medallions with flour mixture; shake off excess flour and set aside.
    2. In a deep pie plate, beat the eggs and mix in the mustard. Place bread crumbs in another pie plate. Dip the pork medallions into the egg mixture; coat well with bread crumbs. Place in refrigerator for 15 minutes.
    3. For the cream sauce, melt the butter in a small heavy saucepan. Add shallots and sauté over medium heat until fragrant (approximately 2 minutes). Remove saucepan from heat; add the wine, chicken broth and cream. Return saucepan to heat and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered, for 12 to 15 minutes to reduce by half. Sauce makes 1 cup.
