Have a great meal with this mouthwatering recipe from Margaret Wilson of Hemet, California. “My family loves the taste of these moist and spicy pork chops,” she says. “In a pinch, I've substituted diced drained peaches for the mandarin oranges with equally delicious results.”

"I made this using chicken breasts instead of pork chops and we absolutely loved it! Can't wait to try it on pork chops. The sweet-spicy mixture is delicious and really balanced so even those who prefer savory over sweet should be satisfied. I would agree with a previous reviewer who suggested adding more mandarin oranges right before serving as the oranges called for in the recipe do tend to break down fairly quickly. I'll be adding more the next time I make this dish."

"I make this recipe every fall. The only thing that I do different is add an extra can of mandarin oranges just before serving. I find that for me the first can tends to break down into a sauce which we really like! But its a great recipe."

"These pork chops were delicious! I didn't have chicken broth so used water, and I found that it was just fine -- the juices from the pork made it flavorful. I do think it would be a bit more so with chicken broth so will be sure to use that next time and see for sure. I served this with mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables and will definitely make it again. It's always nice to have a new recipe for boneless pork chops."

"Because my family does not eat pork, I will substitute chops with boneless, skinless chicken breasts! Perhaps a bit of fresh squeezed lemon juice to finish before serving will make it a wonderful, light, bright flavored week night

meal! I most always find that swapping the appropriate cut of chicken in most all quick preparation pork recipes yields terrific results!"

"These were some of the best pork chops I have ever tried. I did use peaches rather than the oranges; and I will probably use them again since they were good."
