      This IS good comfort food. I made this with only two chops and halved the rest of the ingredients. At step 8 I had to add a couple of TBS water because I had virtually no liquid, but this solved the problem nicely. I also had forgotten to get a lemon so I left the juice out, but I don't think this affected the end result. I'll try it next time, though. Thanks for posting !
