    My husband said it was the best pork chop he has ever eaten! Very juicy and tasty. I did have quite a bit pecan mixture left over. I just dumped it on the pork chops. So good!

    Excellent! So easy to make, all ingredients are normal and on hand. I impressed my family, but it was super quick and easy. Love the flavor of using honey digon instead of egg.

    I altered this recipe due to available ingredients... Instead of honey mustard, I used a homemade honey-mustard vinaigrette, and instead of pecans I used cashews. This was so fabulous that I have added it to our family cookbook!! This is definitely not a recipe to forget!
