This is our favorite way to serve pork chops and is a great way to stretch the meat to feed a crowd. This is also really works really well with chicken. I use regular pancake syrup since that's what I usually have on hand but I would imagine that the real maple syrup would be even better. I have on occassion made this with honey when i've been out of syrup - it always works and is a very forgiving recipe. Hope you enjoy.
