    Made this tonight. Used Cream of Chicken with Herb soup, put the rice mixture on top of the pork chops and added 1 cup frozen vegetables. I also seasoned my meat as I usually do (salt, pepper, minced garlic) before I browned it. Turned out pretty good. Does not need to cook 15 minutes uncovered. 1 hour covered was plenty

    Delicious!!!!! But the next time I cooked it I doubled the rice, added a little more water, and I put the chops in the dish and poured rice mixture over chops. Family loves it!

    Other than the fact that it was easy to prepare, we didn't care for this dinner at all. The pork chops were dry. (Maybe they could have been put under the rice?) The rice was done nicely, but smell from the broccoli soup was unpleasant (and we like broccoli.) By the way, I followed the recipe exactly as written.
