Begin your meal with sweet and citrusy Orange-Glazed Pork Chops from Athena Russell of Florence, South Carolina who loves to create recipes. “I have a passion for cooking; I've been doing it since elementary school,” she writes. The chops are tender and juicy, and with a bit of Dijon and orange juice you'll have bursts of flavor in every bite.

"I followed MapleDrive's advice and this turned out great!"

"I doubled the sauce as someone suggested, and added 1-2 Tablespoons of freshly grated ginger to the sauce. Also I covered the pan after browning the chops and used a little sesame oil for flavor. I might cube the pork before cooking next time. Excellent dish - quite sweet but I like that. Served with white rice and baked sweet potato."

"It was really wonderful! Leftovers taste just as delicious as the night you make it. I would suggest making a extra glaze so that you have it for the leftovers. And I would bet that this glaze would also be fantastic on chicken. Very easy recipe."
