Reviews for Crispy Herb-Coated Pork Chops
"Loved this recipe and will definitely make them again as I have most of a box of butter and herb instant potatoes to use up."
"We liked these chops they were moist and something different thank you for sharing."
"This is so easy. My husband hates instant potatoes so I have to hide them when making this. Once this is ready to be cooked he never knows! He loves pork chops this way. I even use this recipe for company. Always raves."
"Very quick, tasty, and easy."
"Fabulous and easy. The chops came out moist and tender. Other reviews complained about calorie and fat content. If you are watching your calories, my suggestion? Find another recipe!!"
"The people who complain about the fat/calories, etc. They need to look at the Light and Tasty section."
"What could be substituted for the potato flakes?"
"I also made this with gravy from the pan drippins, absolutely delicious!!!!!!!!!!! :)"
"391 mg of salt per chop is too much for a salt free diet/low salt diet. Fat is high. Not healthy, but taste is great! Cannot make again."
"Jill, that's the type of instant mashed potatoes. They are Butter and Herb flavored instant mashed potatoes. Hope that helps."
"I guess I don't understand the recipe. What does 2/3 cup butter and herb-flavored mashed potatoes mean? Does one prepare herb-flavored mashed potatoes and add 2/3 cup butter ? Does this recipe really mean to use 1 full cup of butter?"
"while this may be good, the question is is it good FOR YOU!! Check out the cholesterol and sodium not to mention the fat...533 calories per chop??? I think we can do better than this!!"
"Great flavor. Use chicken if you want a healthier fare."
"UFFDA. 39 grams of fat, half of which is saturated? Can't we get a healthier fare?"
"Made this for supper last night and the chops were awesome! My family loved them."
"Really great flavor! Nice and crispy! I pair them with asparagus! Yummy!"
"These were so easy and tasted great. Also, I added some flour and milk to the drippings and made a white gravy to go over them. So good!"
"loved them and they were easy to make. A new family favorite at house."
"I made this last night and it was great! I am always looking for new ways to make pork chops! A+!"
