Dijon Pork Chops- Skinnytaste (review)

                                              Dijon Pork Chops- Skinnytaste

First I have to say that I have enjoyed cooking my way thre the Skinnytaste website and that frankly I have only found 2 things I did not absolutely love. The more I cook the more comfortable I have been with adapting different things from different recipes. Just to be clear on this recipe..it would be a SIN to change a thing. It is easy and I will no longer cook pork chops any other way. My husband always tried to push off pork chops when I brought it up and who can blame him? I think every pork chop I have ever cooked has been slightly dry...NOT ANYMORE. This recipe is awesome for a work night and the taste is amazing..MAKE THIS TONIGHT!
