    I wasn't sure about this before I made it, me and my husband are not big on mustard, but I gave it a shot....I'm so glad I did. It was absolutely delicious. I had to cook for a little longer than the recipe said and I wish there was a little more of the marinade. Definately a keeper.

    I made this tonight and it was the first time using my broiler, so I think I cooked it a little too long and my pork was a kind of dry. However, that's not why I'm only rating this 3 stars. I thought the flavor was bland. It was easy to prepare and quick to make, I just thought there wasn't enough flavor.

    First, let me say that I made this with chicken instead of pork. It was super delicious with chicken, I'm sure it would be as wonderful with pork chops - thus the 5 stars.I didn't have fresh parsley so I used dried. Instead of putting the chicken under the broiler I cooked it on the stove in a pan. I also used olive oil in the pan which I think gave it a nice taste. The whole thing certainly smelled divine while it was cooking!
