Made this last night and everyone loved it! The pork was moist and tender, not dried out like so many other baked pork chop recipes. I served it with warm flour tortillas so the kids could make "burritos." So next time I will probably use boneless pork chops, but I wouldn't otherwise change a thing. Thanks Chef #514944 for a quick and easy "something different."
