"I've been making these for several years, perfect every time! It does take longer to cook than the 8 minutes suggested but that may be because of the thickness of the pork chops."

"I used homemade apple cinnamon jelly to make these, and they were divine. The taste may be overly sweet for some, but for us it was a perfect treat. They're also very good even without the glaze. I immediately added this recipe to my rotation."

"my husband suggested using mushrooms instead of the apples. I really liked the sauce and would try it again with mushrooms and maybe use chicken."

"Very easy to make. The key is to not over cook the pork. I added juices from the chops to the apple jelly and breadcrumbs to creaty a 'gravy'. Oddly enough it tasted like duck sauce. Next time I'll try duck sauce instead of the jelly."
