An Easy Weeknight Dinner Recipe: Baked Pork Chops

Pork chops are a great dinner option, but can become tough when baked in an oven. This recipe uses a gravy-like mixture made from canned soup to keep the pork tender while it bakes in the oven, and the savory dressing on top of each pork chop enhances the flavor of the pork.

My six year old son made dinner tonight, as part of the Kids Cook Monday campaign. He was able to perform all of the steps independently, except for braising the pork and cutting the onion into pieces for the food processor. He was able to make the soup gravy mix, form the stuffing mixture, and put everything together in the baking dish.

Alternatives and Substitutions to Pork Chops with Stuffing

The cream of mushroom soup may be exchanged for cream of celery or cream of chicken, if desired. The flavor of the "gravy" topping will change with the soup selection.

1/4 teaspoon of poultry seasoning may be used in place of the thyme and sage recommended above. In addition, the number of pork chops may be reduced without affecting the recipe. We frequently make 2 pork chops for this recipe, as our two young boys do not eat enough meat to require the use of four pork chops yet.

We usually serve this recipe with broccoli and fruit salad, though any vegetable would suit this recipe well as a side dish. We do not make rolls or rice with this recipe since the dish contains a lot of starch in the dressing.

      Thanks, teaches12345 - it's an older recipe from my husband's side of the family. The stuffing does have a fairly high fat content, though it is not as bad as store-bought stuffing. We make it because Nolan will eat it - anything he'll eat is on the "approved" list!

      They're pretty good, and this is a good way to cook pork chops without having them get too dry. My boys also like this one, randomcreative, so we make it frequently!

      We make these every once in a while, moonlake - we get bored with the same recipes over and over so I have quite the stockpile of recipes to make for our weeknight dinners! This is an easy one to do with kids.

      Hi ytsenoh - there is a campaign to have the kids cook dinner on Mondays, as a way to get them involved with real food. This one is pretty easy to make and is a great weeknight dinner - we like it the most in the winter, as it makes a hearty meal.
