Simply Oven Baked Pork Chops or Chicken and Rice II

READY IN: 1hr 50mins
Recipe by Deely

This is an updated version of DH's bachelor days recipe, that I posted in 2005. When I first met him, the only spices he owned was Tony's, garlic salt and salt and pepper. This is the recipe that has evolved from the original. It's still a basic recipe...just a lot more flavor. As with all my recipes, feel free to change it up to suit your family's tastes. Note: You can season the rice with salt and pepper. We do it at the table.

Made this for the tag game MY 3 Chefs Oct. 2013. I did use thick bone-in pork chops and followed the rest of the ingredients and the recipe. While the pork was perfect and with the seasoning I would definately add more to the rice mixture. DH enjoyed this but said the rice needed something...some seasoning and garlic maybe. I will make this again and play with it but overall this was an easy and good recipe. Thank you for posting.
