|Pork Chops on Rice|
Simple and delicious. Rice is like risotto with no work at all! Light on calories too.
This is a fast and almost work-free dinner. It’s actually a total meal in itself since there’s plenty of veggies right in the rice!!! Add more veggies too if you want! I used up some leftover canned carrots, but most anything would work here.
Baked Pork Chops on Rice
- 4 boneless loin pork chops about 3/4-inch thick
- 1 cup brown or white rice
- 2 – 10 oz cans cream of celery soup
- 2 1/4 cups water
- 2 tbs olive oil
- 3 ribs celery sliced
- 1 – 15 oz can sliced carrots drained
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/8 tsp pepper
- 1/8 tsp garlic powder
- 1/8 tsp thyme
- 2 tsp olive oil for basting
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray a 13 x 9-inch pan with non-stick spray.
- In a large bowl, mix together the rice, soup, water, 2 tbs olive oil, celery and carrots. Pour in prepared baking dish.
- Mix the salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme in a small cup.
- Place pork chops on top of rice mixture in pan. Baste pork chops with the 2 tsp olive oil. Sprinkle with salt mixture.
- Bake for 45-60 minutes. White rice will require a shorter cook time. If using white rice, check rice for doneness in 30 minutes.
