Pork Chops with Button Mushrooms, Broccoli and Long Grain Rice

What a yummy dinner we had last night. This one is certainly a KEEPER! This was such a yummy, comforting dish... it would be good with chicken breast too!

Pork Chops with Button Mushrooms, Broccoli and Long Grain Rice
4 pork chop
Salt, pepper and garlic powder
1 can 98% Fat Free cream of mushroom soup
2 cups water/chicken stock
1½ cup long grain rice, uncooked
2-2½ cups fresh broccoli florets
10 button mushrooms, sliced
Preheat oven to 350⁰F.

Season pork chops with salt, pepper and garlic powder and grill until brown and almost done.

In a large bowl mix together soup, water/stock, rice, broccoli and mushrooms.
In a 9x13 inch baking dish place browned pork chops in the bottom then top with rice mixture and cover with foil; bake 1 hour or until rice has absorbed all the liquid.

Shooting from the hip...

So we totally shot from the hip on this one... Not sure where it will go but for this dinner we just used :

2 Chicken Breasts - pounded out to about 1/4" thick
1 pkg Frozen Spinach - thawed and drained
4 slices of Baby Swiss cheese

Pound out the chicken, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Spread half the spinach on one breast, half on the other breast. Lay down 2 slices end to end of swiss cheese on each breast. Roll the breast up and reinforce with toothpicks. Bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes, depending on you oven.

Next time we talked about adding one or a few of the following to the middle:
2 Tb Light Ranch dressing to each
2 Tb Caesar Dressing on each
2 Tb Miracle Whip on each
a sprinkle of cranberries
2 slices Deli Ham
2 slices Bacon

Not sure what else but when we fix it next time we'll be posting....
