Reviews for Cranberry-Orange Pork Chops
"I make this recipe every fall. The only thing that I do different is add an extra can of mandarin oranges just before serving. I find that for me the first can tends to break down into a sauce which we really like! But its a great recipe."
"These pork chops were delicious! I didn't have chicken broth so used water, and I found that it was just fine -- the juices from the pork made it flavorful. I do think it would be a bit more so with chicken broth so will be sure to use that next time and see for sure. I served this with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables and will definitely make it again. It's always nice to have a new recipe for boneless pork chops."
"Love the cranberry-orange combo! They were nice and juicy. I'll deffinately make them again (and take the leftovers for lunch tomorrow!)"
"Because my family does not eat pork, I will substitute chops with boneless, skinless chicken breasts! Perhaps a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice to finish before serving will make it a wonderful, light, bright flavored week nightmeal! I most always find that swapping the appropriate cut of chicken in most all quick preparation pork recipes yields terrific results!"

"These were some of the best pork chops I have ever tried. I did use peaches rather than the oranges; and I will probably use them again since they were good."
