"Very good and easy as well. I will definitely make again but I think I will cut the sugar down as it is a little sweet for me."

"Pretty quick and easy. (But if you leave 'em I the oven longer - re-covering them with the applesauce/juice periodically, so they don't dry out - they do get more tender.)"

"I made it for two so only used two boneless chops in a 8 x 8 dish and it turned out very good."
