"Yes, the pork chops were dry. Next time, instead of cooking the chops at 450 degrees, I'll cook it at 350 degrees. Go easy on the rubbed sage. Other than that, it was good. Will make it the next time."

"This is good! It gets really juicy in the packet. I recommend tenderizing the pork chops before cooking them for extra tenderness."

"These are just ok. Didn't care for the spice combination and they were a little dry. They were ok for one time but wouldn't make them again."

"This is easy and fun to make. I love the no-mess clean up. You need to watch how long to bake. I baked mine a little too long so that they were a little on the dry side. But, they were still good. Even my daughter who doesn't like pork chops ate this one."
