  • 1 (16 ounce) can chicken broth

  • 1 ½ cups uncooked rice

  • 1 (10 ounce) can cream of chicken soup

  • 1 cup water

  • 4 ounces shredded Cheddar cheese

  • 1 pound boneless pork chops

  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


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

  2. 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.

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

  4. 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.
