Reviews for Fruit-Glazed Pork Chops
"Easy delicious dinner for weeknight! I used regular mustard but will also experiment as suggested with Dijon. Would also be good on chicken."
"These were so easy and delicious!!!"
"Has anyone tried this recipe with dijon mustard instead of prepared? I've used dijon and apricot preserves together before but never prepared yellow mustard."
"I used chicken quarters and the sauce was just the spark it needed. Thanks for a great recipe. I'll definitely try this with pork."
"Fruit glazed pork chops is a simple, easy recipe to make and one my family does any time we have pork chops and the right ingredients. It's a delicious dinner and one we'll be keeping for a long, long time."
