    I made this recipe today for lunch. We loved it. I grilled mine on my outdoor grill on low. It took about 6 minutes to grill. I will definitely make this recipe again very soon.

    This was a big hit with my family! My husband even told me to keep this recipe. That’s saying a lot coming for him. My 2 year old, 4, and 9 year old all had seconds! Very easy to make. It only took 4 mins to grill on the foreman as it grilled both sides at once. A keeper recipe for sure

    So quick and tasty! I cooked them on a George Forman-type grill, so only had to cook 3-4 minutes total since it cooks both sides at the same time. Made it super quick!

    I've been making these for several years, perfect every time! It does take longer to cook than the 8 minutes suggested but that may be because of the thickness of the pork chops.

    I used homemade apple cinnamon jelly to make these, and they were divine. The taste may be overly sweet for some, but for us it was a perfect treat. They're also very good even without the glaze. I immediately added this recipe to my rotation.

    my husband suggested using mushrooms instead of the apples. I really liked the sauce and would try it again with mushrooms and maybe use chicken.
