All the glaze seemed to slide off and the pork chops didn't have much flavor. My husband liked them, though.

This is one of the easiest and best recipes I've found thus far.It's quick, easy, HEALTHY (low in calories despite sugar and low in salt). I fixed with squash and zuchini side...really great.
