"Very good flavor, but it seemed a lot of the glaze fell between the broiler pan slats. So easy and everyone in the family (including 7 & 4 year old) liked them...Definitely a keeper!"

"I doubled the sauce. I baked the chops at 350 till about 20 minutes from being done.

I drained the pan, poured on 1/2 the sauce baked about 15 more minutes, turned them over add the rest of the sauce and baked till tender. My family RAVED! This is one I will make often"

"These were great, although I didn't prepare them as directed... Instead, I browned up boneless chops in a skillet and then poured a double recipe of the glaze ingredients over top, and then simmered the chops until they were cooked through. My family really enjoyed them!"

"These were very good and moist. I did these in the oven, covered, and baked them at 350 for 40 minutes because they were very thick. I also cut it down for two but not the sauce."
