I used some thick pork chops. I didn't add the cherries as I had used them in a pineapple upside down cake. This was really good. I used your suggestion of using part of the pineapple juice for the water. I am going to make this again & use chicken the next time. Thanks Joyce for posting it.

Thanks Sharon for the opportunity to test this recipe.
