Let's Make It
Cut each squash half into 3 wedges; place in slow cooker. Top with onions, garlic and chops. Mix broth, jam, mustard, thyme and pepper until blended; pour over chops. Cover with lid.
Cook on LOW 5 to 6 hours (or on HIGH 2-1/2 to 3 hours). Transfer chops and vegetables to platter; cover to keep warm.
Skim and discard excess fat from liquid in slow cooker. Add enough water to reserved liquid to measure 1-3/4 cups; pour into medium saucepan. Mix cornstarch and 1/4 cup cold water until blended. Add to liquid in saucepan; mix well. Bring to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly; cook and stir 1 min. or until thickened. Spoon over chops and vegetables.
Serve with hot cooked brown rice, and a mixed green salad tossed with your favorite KRAFT Lite Dressing.
Prepare using plum or cherry preserves.
