To a heatproof medium bowl, add the butternut squash and chicken broth. Season with salt (in moderation) and pepper. Cover with plastic wrap and cook in the microwave 8 min., until squash is very tender.
To the bowl with squash, add the milk, butter, cayenne, and ginger. With a potato masher, mash the mixture until mostly smooth. Add more milk or chicken broth, if needed. Cover with plastic and reserve.
Meanwhile, season the pork with salt (in moderation). In a small bowl, combine honey, vinegar, garlic powder, salt (in moderation) and pepper.
In a greased nonstick skillet, heat on medium-high. Cook pork chops 2 min. per side. Reduce heat to medium-low and add honey mixture. Cook 1 min., until pork is glazed with honey, turning pork occasionally. Serve pork chops over mash.
