"Way better recipes out there!! They were very hard to brown. Took way longer than stated and they tasted awful. No one would eat them>"

"They never browned and had to stick them under the broiler. They were so wet between the marinade and the spray on the pan that the coating was left on the pan and we had to spoon it over the chops. For the cost of the hazelnuts, this is just not worth the trouble."

"These were beautiful and tasty. I used a thicker pork chop and they took about 30-35 min to bake but the crust was a beautiful golden brown, so it didn't hurt the dish. Not sure how much the marinating really added."
