Lemon-Glazed Pork Chops

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Sydney Mike

This quick & easy recipe comes from the 1966 Quick & Easy Dinners cookbook by the editors of Sunset Magazine. When serving these chops, I like using the reserved half of the glaze over brown rice & peas!

These pork chops were soooooo good. The glaze really made this dish. The pork chops were tender, moist and yummy. I can't wait to try this glaze on chicken. This recipe is a definite keeper. Recipenapped for November, 2009 Aus/NZ Swap.
