"This pork is so so so good! So simple but packed with flavor. I like to serve it with "Creamy Noodles" because it has cajun seasoning in it. https://www.tasteofhome.com/recipes/Creamy-Noodles"

"I modified this recipe. I did not like the sauce made from the leftover marinade, so instead of using that, I spread 1 tsp low sugar orange marmalade over each chop and it made an orange glaze that was really good. I did like the marinade as a marinade, just not as a sauce."

"a tiny bit of extra cajun gives it a little kick but I like to double the marinade so I can smother the pork"
