    Way to much juice in the pan, chops were covered and didn't brown at all, not very appetizing to look at. Maybe browning before would help.

    I used chicken breasts instead of pork chops & omitted the jalapeno pepper. It had just the right amount of sweetness & spice. Also, was very easy to make & the chicken was very moist & tender.
