Really good and easy to put together. Used 10 thin (1/3" thick) chops and left all other proportions the same. It came out perfect. Thanks!

flavorful and easy to put together! i used a blackened seasoning on my pork chops for extra flavor. i added some garlic to the onion/pepper mixture. i think next time i'll use a tab bit less chicken stock, as mine turned out a little runny. loved the cheesy crust, i used asiago since that's what i had. thanks for posting.

It was pretty good. I served it with mashed sweet potatoes which balanced out the onions. And I love onions.
