I found this recipe in our local newspaper, and tweaked it just a bit to fit my tastes. It is a fantastic, easy, no-sweat dish to make in the summer because it doesn't require heating the oven up. We ate it over cooked egg noodles, with a side of cooked broccoli, and a salad. The sauce is just divine!! The leftovers are also good cold for a quick lunch. Yummy!!:)

You are so right, Manda - the sauce is DIVINE! I plan to make up a batch by itself and freeze for use in other recipes and on the grill. And the chops turned out very juicy and tender. Instead of noodles or mashed potatoes, I served the chops and sauce with red beans and rice (1 box of Zatarain's - makes up in the microwave in 25 mins). The sauce ran over into the red beans & rice and it was sooooo YUMMY! I've definitely added this one to my cookbook.
