HOW DO YOU BAKE PORK CHOPS AND STUFFING?
First, preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. In a cast-iron skillet, heat the olive oil and sprinkle the pork chops with salt and pepper on both sides.
Next, sear each seasoned pork chop for six minutes on each side. Be sure the skillet and oil are hot before you add the pork chops.
ADD CHICKEN BROTH AND CREAM
After that, remove the seared pork chops from the pan and pour the chicken broth into the pan. Then, deglaze the pan and scrape any bits of pieces of the bottom of the pan for extra flavor.
Add cream of mushroom soup, milk, and mushrooms to the pan and whisk until everything is fully combined.
RETURN CHOPS AND ADD STUFFING
Next, return the seared pork chops to the pan and baste some of the mushroom soup over the tops of each pork chop to make sure they stay tender and juicy as they cook.
Top each pork chop with the prepared stuffing. Cover the pan with foil or a lid so the stuffing does not burn while in the oven.
Next, bake the pork chops in the oven with the stuffing for 25 minutes. Uncover the pork chops and bake for five more minutes so they get a little crispy.
Finally, serve warm with your favorite side dishes and veggies. Wanna go “full-on comfort mode?” Serve them with mashed potatoes – heck, the dish has its own gravy already!
