"I used 1/2 panko 1/2 shake and bake. Lol. The pork came out amazingly! The sauce was out of the park awesome. This was actually a replacement meal for another pork chop dish I forgot an ingredient for. I have a sneaking suspicion that even at the last moment this was a phenomenally better recipe. Yum!"

"First let me start by saying I don't fry. Anything. It scares me a little. I loved this recipe. I used chops with bone in and it took a lot more butter to fry these babies up, but they were delicious. Not everyone in the family like the sauce, but I loved it."
