  • wow---everyone keeps asking how can it serve 8 folks with only 4 chops...i think the answer here on spark people is more than easy enough to imagine....CUT DOWN ON YOUR PORTION SIZE?????? No? Each person can have half a pork chop and be satisfied. - 6/14/10

  • I love unique sauces so this chutney was a treat. I think it would go well with chicken and since we had some left over, I will try that tomorrow. - 7/20/08

  • I just like the idea of the chutney itself. Maybe use Splenda instead of sugar and serve it on chicken. The chicken could be done in any way. It is the topping that is the interest. - 6/4/08

    I agree!!! How can it serve 8 with only 4 chops. That means that a serving is 1/2 a chop, and is still 300 calories. I don't think I will make this one, unless there is a huge mistake in the recipe!!!! - 6/4/08
