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.
- 3 -4 pork chops or 4 chicken thighs
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup (I use Healthy Request)
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can low sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup white rice (uncooked)
- 1⁄2 cup onion, coarse chop
- 1⁄4 teaspoon seasoning salt
- 1⁄4 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1⁄4 teaspoon pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon paprika
- Season pork chops with pepper, seasoning salt and garlic powder.
- In a skillet, sauté onions in butter and oil until limp.
- Remove onions to a 2 quart casserole.
- Quick sear pork chops in same skillet.
- Remove chops to a platter.
- De-glaze pan with a little chicken broth and add to casserole.
- Stir in in rest of the broth along with rice and soup.
- Place chops on top and sprinkle with paprika.
- Cover and bake at 350* for 1 1/2 hours until rice is done and liquid is absorbed (check at 1 1/4 hours).
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.
