Company Stuffed Pork Chops

These comforting pork chops bake to a perfect golden brown, and the stuffing is incredibly moist. It's one of my favorite dishes to serve to guests because I know they'll love it. —Lorraine Darocha, Mountain City, Tennessee

Ingredients

  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 9 slices white bread, cubed
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon rubbed sage
  • 1/8 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram
  • 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • PORK CHOPS:
  • 6 pork rib chops (7 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Directions

  • In a large skillet coated with cooking spray, saute celery and onion in 1 teaspoon oil until tender; remove from the heat. In a large bowl, combine bread and seasonings. Add celery mixture and broth; toss to coat. Set aside.
  • Cut a pocket in each pork chop by making a horizontal slice almost to the bone. Recoat the same skillet with cooking spray. Cook chops in remaining 2 teaspoons oil in batches over medium-high heat until browned, 1-2 minutes on each side. Fill chops with bread mixture; secure with toothpicks if necessary.
  • Transfer to a 13x9-in. baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Cover and bake at 350° for 15 minutes. Uncover; bake until a thermometer inserted into center of stuffing reads 165° and thermometer inserted in pork reads at least 145°, 15-20 minutes longer. Discard toothpicks and let stand 5 minutes before serving.
