YUM! I made a few changes but only to the technique. I did add extra Tony Chacheries cajun spice but that is the cajun girl in me. :o) The big changes were, I forgot to pound out the chops and by the time I realized that, it was too late. So what I did was toss them in the frying pan and brown both sides to get the crispy crust. Then I put them in a roasting pan, on a rack, and baked them for about 20 minutes at 400 degrees. They were very juicy and the flavor exploded in my mouth with every bite! I will make these once a week FOREVER!! Thanks for another great recipe!!
