"I'm thinking 1 hour is too long to cook these chops. I think I would just brown the chops and put them on top of my scalloped potatoes that have been in the oven for awhile and let everything finish at the same time."

"This recipe claims the prep is 25 mins it has been over 1 hour and 20 mins and i have only managed to chop my potatoes, make the gravy which wasnt enough to cover my meat so ill be making another batch and cook 1 pork chop will never make again i only made 4 pork chops because i was so hunrgry and felt like passing out didnt have the energy to make the other 4 chops. It took 1 hour and 15 mins to bake on 350 for an hour then 375 for 15 mins. The flavor was delicious og the gravy i added some garlic in it an my potatoes were perfect but my chops were dry tasting. My grandma used to bake her chops with potatoes and i was craving it but this is definently not my grandmas way of making it her chops were very juicy and delicious and the gravy was more liquid like but she is passed so the recipe is still a mystery ??but this helped curbed that craving. I do suggest not adding salt to this dish because the chicken broth already has alot of salt in it!"

"Very good base recipe. The gravy was tasty and easy. I made it in the crock pot and cooked it for 4 hours on low. The gravy was thinner than it would have been, but we didn't mind, and it kept the pork moist. I added a lot more salt and pepper, and some rosemary. It needed the extra flavor. We served it with broccoli."

I came across this one and had everything I needed to make it. I reduced the cooking time a little because the pork chops I had were boneless and thin cut, but everything was tender and delicious.

Like others, I add more broth to make a bit more sauce, and put the chops on the bottom to cook until near the end, and then transfer them to the top. I do add garlic though and a little dijon mustard as I find the dish a bit bland otherwise. A great dish though, no matter how you cook it."

"Wow! I made this dish tonight and my entire family LOVED it (& they can be very picky--3 teenagers)!!! I had 2 packs of pork chops and followed this recipe for 1 pack and a different recipe for the other pack. This one won - - hands down! I used everything listed in the recipe, but used Lawry's Seasoning Salt with the pepper. This is by far the best pork chop dish I have ever made. Something to note: After an hour, I took the cover (tin foil) off and checked the pork chops and potatoes. They were done, therefore, my meal was done in 1 hour instead of 1 1/2 hours. I'm so glad I checked them so that they didn't end up dry. This was an easy and delicious 5 star meal that I will be making often! (*I did not need to double the sauce because this recipe made plenty of sauce.)"
