Tangy orange flavors the marinade and sweet sauce that dress up these tender and juicy chops. Add mashed potatoes or rice and a simple side salad for a fuss-free supper. Mary Chandler - Grand Tower, Illinois

    Very easy to make, I did not add the orange zest and let it sit for about an hour vs 8 hours still came out great. Husband LOVED it, he could not tell the pineapple juice was in it (not a fan of pineapples). Next time I plan to double the sauce though. We had it with white rice, very filling.
