""Good stuff!"<------ a direct quote from my husband. This one's a keeper. I cut the recipe in half for the two of us. I also added about ten minutes to the cooking time since my chops were at least an inch thick."

"I quadrupled the glaze. My chops were frozen and about 3/4" thick so took them about 1hr. So delicious. I also took them out every 20mins to rotate because I had them in 9x9 baking dishes, but I'd follow the recipe if I had the bigger dish and thinner chops. THANKS!!!"

"My mother and I loved this recipe. The only problem was the glaze cooked off of it for the most part.

I used boneless chops and cut the sauce in half. They were so juicy and tender and unbelievably tasty. This is definitely a keeper!"

"It was too saucy and chops were not moist. I would consider cooking in crockpot."
