MY REVIEW

I used whole wheat panko instead of bread crumbs... I then baked the pork chops in the same pan I browned them in... After they were bake through, I removed them added a little more chicken broth and a pat of butter and made a sauce to top them... Yummy...

These were great! My family loved them! I doubled the recipe and made four chops and 4x's the stuffing. Also, for the stuffing I used 1/2 Pepperidge Farm stuffing and 1/2 old bread! It was so good! This will definitely be a staple in my kitchen!

Wonderful! The entire family loved it! I made my own dry bread crumbs added dried cranberries and used chopped celery. The celery gave it a crunch I love. Chopped very small. Served with cinnamon and brown sugar apples! Yum! Of course I doubled all!

Made these tonight and will definitely make again! I did use 1c. bread crumbs. For a slightly "lower fat" version, use olive oil instead of butter. This recipe was simple, delicious, and there was not a crumb left at dinner! Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe!
