Stuffed Orange Glaze Pork Chops

Tasty pork chops with a simple bread and celery stuffing, and a sweet and sour orange marmalade sauce. The original recipe, from McCall’s Greatest Recipe Card Collection, called for 4 rib chops cut 1-1/2” thick (2 lbs. total) with a pocket. Instead of the rib chops I use boneless pork chops, place stuffing between two of them, then tie them together with kitchen string. Then I adjust the cooking time according to the thickness of the chops. You can adjust the seasonings to suit your taste too. The stuffing is also good with chicken breasts. Serve with a green veggie or salad and baked potatoes for dinner. Note: Edited to remove some of the salt and reduce the sweetness of this recipe.

Stuffing was too salty, even though I used a bit less of the required salt, and ommitted the seasoning salt altogether. I used less marmalade than the glaze called for as well, but pork chops were incrediably way too sweet. Suggest perhaps using less marmalade or ommitting that and making an alternitive glaze using ripe oranges which will be milder giving just a him of orange not an overwhelming taste of marmalade and sugar.
