Pretty good as a starting point. These are the changes I made:
I used Nature's Seasoning liberally on the chops and got my cast iron skillet med hi hot. This gave a nice brown to each side and yummy bits in the bottom.
Rather than waste the yummy bits left in the skillet after browning the chops, I added the butter to melt in the skillet. Then added the flour, stirring well. Finally added the chicken stock (1 3/4 C from a box) in two parts, allowing the gravy to thicken between additions.
I used red skinned potatoes so I just scrubbed them really well and left the skin on.
Baked with foil at 375 for 30 min. Then removed the foil to check potato doneness. Everything was done so I served it up. In retrospect I believe I sliced the potatoes too thin. The "gravy" was more like au jus but yummy nevertheless. Just needed lots of crusty bread to sop it up!
