I made this last night for dinner and it was delicious! It could easily be stretched to have 6 pork chops and still have enough stuffing.

I tried this recipe the other day and it was a hit with the family! Everyone kept going back to the pan for more. This had a nice mix of flavor and texture and left us enough for a second meal.
