Ingredient Checklist


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.
