Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 3-quart casserole dish.

  • Stir chicken broth, rice, cream of chicken soup, and water together with a whisk in the prepared casserole dish until smooth; add Cheddar cheese, season with salt and pepper, and stir.

  • Lie pork chops into the rice mixture in a single layer; season with more black pepper.

  • Bake in preheated oven until rice in the middle of the dish is tender and pork chops are golden brown, about 80 minutes.

Cook's Note:

You can try adding a 4 ounce can of green chiles, a few sliced mushrooms, or some broccoli florets for starters!

Of course you can substitute the broth and soup with any flavor.

American cheese is a good substitute for Cheddar cheese.

This also works well with chicken filets as the meat.

I only gave it a 4 star because there was nothing about it to give it flavor. I added 2 onions a clove of garlic and salt free CAVENDEK'S seasoning. It did not need any salt. That made it a 5 star. I will be fixing it again my way. Read More

It lacked depth of flavor. I even added grated onions and bell pepper and it still wasn't that flavorful. I did make it with smoked pork chops because it's what I had. I'm not sure if that affected the flavor at all. Read More

I made this and since I always read the reviews to see what other variations there are I added minced onion and garlic to season for taste. Instead of using regular Cream of Mushroom soup I used Campbells Cream of Mushroom with Roasted Garlic. It came out so delicious! I seasoned the pork chops before I lay them on top of the rice.

This was just ok for me. The rice had a great flavor and was a hit with the family. The pork chops were bland. I will try this recipe again adding additional seasoning to it. Read More

I followed the basic recipe but used Uncle Ben's Wild Rice with the seasoning packet which was perfect! I also browned the pork chops first for added flavor Will definitely add it to my Favorites list! Read More

Very easy. You put everything together and put it in the oven. You do need to add your own spices or it could be bland. I will make it again. Read More
