    Delicious! I actually put the pork chops back into the sauce and cooked them for several minutes to have the taste of the sauce be on the meat more. YUM!

    Very good! Didn't have bread crumbs so I used panko and it was great!

    Great recipe, I made one change, I added about 8oz. Of apple juice to the sauce. I got rave reviews with each bite, this from a man who doesn't like pork, lol.

    I used 1/2 panko 1/2 shake and bake. Lol. The pork came out amazingly! The sauce was out of the park awesome. This was actually a replacement meal for another pork chop dish I forgot an ingredient for. I have a sneaking suspicion that even at the last moment this was a phenomenally better recipe. Yum!

    Very good with or without the sauce. My husband thought the sauce was too sweet, but used sparingly, it really makes these pork chops special.
