Very good, though my chops turned out a bit dry. Will make again, but make minor adjustments such as slightly more butter to filling and not cooking as high or as long to make sure the meat doesn't dry out.

I thought it was okay but a little dry and bland. My mom, however thought it was one of the best things I had ever made...I did add some extra butter to the stuffing.

Delicious! I have a secret to keeping the stuffing inside. Instead of cutting the pocket on the outer edge, slice about halfway through the chop along the length of the bone. Then cut a pocket from the inside. I found this in a recipe 30 years ago, and my stuffing always stays put!

This dish has outstanding flavor! I had a package of 5 butterflied chops. I used a heaping 1/4 cup each of onion and green pepper in 2 tbs butter with 2 cups of stuffing mix, 1 cup of corn and generous 2&1/2 tbs of pimiento. I also added about 1/4 cup water to the stuffing mixture. I browned chops in butter and seasoned with garlic powder and a pinch of salt. After stuffing the chops, I put the remaining stuffing mixture in the baking dish around the chops to make a casserole. Covered dish the first 20 minutes of baking then removed foil and sprinkled another 1/4 cup of water over the stuffing. Will definitely make this again and maybe even try chicken breasts! What an awesome recipe!

All I can say is this was a hit with my family. My husband is a picky eater and he went bragging to his friends about this dish. I changed a couple things around, and it was good. Defaenlly be making this again.

I used bread stuffing instead (lower sodium stove top chicken stuffing mix) and added some water. I marinated boneless chops in oil, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, and hot sauce for a couple hours. I added two chili peppers to the onion pepper mix. I loved these chops!

Recipe was very good! I added some garlic and garlic salt and it was really good! I had a little left over of the stuffing ingredients and poored them over the pork chops. It was delish!
