This quick recipe is fantastic! The seasonings add just the right amount of flavor, and the apricot preserves offer a touch of sweetness. The glaze is also tasty on grilled chicken. —Kathy Harding, Richmond, MO

"These were very good and I appreciate that they are easy and fast. I added Worcestershire sauce to the apricot hoisin glaze and omitted the peanuts. Very tasty, thanks for sharing!"

"Loved this recipe! I thought it was fairly high calorie for something considered "light," so I just made it a 4oz serving of pork rather than 6oz. Absolutely delicious!"

"These chops were very tasty, and my 2 year old son gobbled them up. He even asked for the sauce on his green beans (and it was quite good on them!)"
