FANTASTIC! I cook the topping in a pan till it thickens. The first time I made it the sauce was still a little under-cooked (pasty tasting). (I'm not an experienced broiler!) I broil them as directed and add the cooked sauce for the final 2-3 min broil. I also double the sauce since we like lots of it. Have also added a little cayenne for spicy touch! Nice quick recipe. Make the sauce ahead of time.

I also used the skillet method. Delicious! Also served with the mashed winter squash featured in picture. Great fall/winter meal.

Delicious! Very easy to prepare. I heard the comment, "Let's have these again."

I made them in the skillet vs broiling them. I browned both sides then added the mixture and let them simmer in it for a bit. I used thick cut pork chops. My husband loved it!! It's a keeper for sure!

All the glaze seemed to slide off and the pork chops didn't have much flavor. My husband liked them, though.

This is one of the easiest and best recipes I've found thus far.It's quick, easy, HEALTHY (low in calories despite sugar and low in salt). I fixed with squash and zuchini side...really great.
