Fix it and Forget it Pork Chop Bake

30 Jul

It’s true…making homemade scalloped potatoes is not scary-in fact it is almost fool proof (trust me). This recipe was born out of my love for the potatoes but not of the strange looking dehydrated like potatoes you can buy in the box. This is a fix it a forget it meal. So versatile and you can easily add in extra ingredients and flavors to fit your likes. I will share the basic recipe and from there have fun making it your own!

Ingredients needed to get started.
First step add1-2 bouillon cube (s) to 1 3/4 C water and bring to a boil and remove from heat.
You want the bouillon cube to dissolve. Or go ahead and use equivalent already prepared stock (14 oz.)
In a large skillet  heat 1-2 Tbsp olive oil over med-high heat.
Season your chops with salt and pepper.
Add pork chops to pan and brown both sides-3-4 minutes per side.
While chops are frying prep your potatoes.
Nice and golden on both sides.
Add your sliced onions to the same pan. Let the onions cook in the drippings
Remove onions from pan.
Melt 2 Tbsp butter in hot pan.
Add the flour and whisk to make a roux.
Add in the chicken broth and cream of chicken soup( and optional cheese.and any other veggie add ins).Add the onions back in and turn heat to low.
Butter a 13×9 (or whatever works for you) casserole dish. And arrange
potatoes in an overlapping stacking pattern (yes, it is OK to arrange the potatoes in 2 layers-
it will still cook evenly and thoroughly).
Pour sauce over potatoes-no need to mix.
Lay pork chops on top of potatoes. No need to press them down.
Cover with foil and bake in a 350 oven for 65-75 minutes or for extra tender chops bake in
a 300 degree oven for 2-2 1/2 hours.
Ta-Da! Remove foil and let sit for 10 minutes to give the sauce a chance to thicken.

See-easy 🙂  You can also make this ahead of time and stick it in your fridge until you are ready to cook. Just remove from fridge 30 minutes before baking to allow the pork chop bake to come to room temperature (ensures even cooking time and keeps meat from being tough).
Try adding sauteed mushrooms, different cream soups such as cream of mushroom or cream of celery, or our favorite green beans. Season with your favorite herbs and spices to give it even more flavor.  Try adding some grated cheese to the sauce-makes the dish even more decadent! This is also an easy meal to put together to bring to a sick friend or a family with a new baby.

    I’m having trouble finding a printable version. Is there a link I missed? Looks yummy!

    • Rebecca January 18, 2014 at 10:11 am #

      Good morning! I am so sorry that I don’t have a printable version at this time. It is something in the works for future posts. Boy, do I have a lot to learn 🙂 Thank you so much for stopping by and for the kind compliment. It might be an extra step but you could copy and paste into a word document and print it that way. I hope you have a wonderful weekend! ~Blessings~

    Looks yummy and would love the recipe.

    • Rebecca January 19, 2014 at 3:51 pm #

      Oh no! Are you not able to pull up the recipe?

  5. Anonymous January 19, 2014 at 2:31 pm #

    Made this the other night….very good! Cooked for the lesser time. Potatoes were perfect (used smaller red potatoes as I didn’t have the others and left the skin on.) not eoug onions for me though…lol. Think it would work well with chicken, too.

    • Rebecca January 19, 2014 at 3:50 pm #

      Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know, it made my day! 🙂 Haha, I agree, not enough onions for me either…but for the family I compromise a bit 🙂 It is also great with chicken! I love how versatile it is. I hope you are having a wonderful day. ~Blessings to you~

    FYI You can print this by highlighting the smaller written section, then right click with your mouse, telling it to print. Worked for me!

    I made this tonight. It was alright. I must say it was kind of bland. I cooked it 300 for 3 hours and the chops were really dry. If I make it again I think I’ll use bone in chops and smother them I the sauce before cooking, in the sauce itself I think some garlic cloves and cayenne pepper will add the depth it was lacking. But thank you for sharing! I just don’t know where it went wrong.

    • Rebecca February 20, 2014 at 7:09 pm #

      So sorry it didn’t work well for you. The recipe is supposed to be really basic so it can be easily adaptable to specific tastes. I am always adding new things to keep it from getting boring 🙂 I usually use really thick chops so it hasn’t been a problem for me. I really do appreciate feedback and I will go in and make some updates and notes based on your recommendation. I hope you have a great day! ~Blessings~

    Can not wait to try this!!! It is on the menu for this week, looks so yummy!!

    Could you also do this in a crock pot?

    • Rebecca March 31, 2014 at 7:16 pm #

      I haven’t tried this particular recipe in the crockpot but I have tried similar and they turned out great! If you do try it in the crockpot please let me know how it went. Thanks for stopping by. I hope you are having a great day!

    • Rebecca July 5, 2014 at 5:32 pm #

      Brandy, Thank you so much for stopping by. I am so glad to hear that you personalized to fit your taste! I hope you enjoy. Have a blessed day! 🙂

  18. Billie July 12, 2015 at 5:12 pm #

    I am making this right now, I am wondering how much flour you used? I don’t see that anywhere. Ty for posting this.

    • Rebecca July 12, 2015 at 5:23 pm #

      Hi Billie,
      Sorry about that! Use 2-3 TBSP of flour. Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the recipe and I would love to hear how you personalized it. I hope you are having a wonderful day!! ~Blessings~

  19. Lauren August 25, 2015 at 11:41 pm #

    Hi questions
    With the 1st step “add one bouillon cube to 1 1/4 C water and bring to a boil and remove from heat.
    You want the bouillon cube to dissolve. Or go ahead and use equivalent already prepared stock.” When does this actually get added? Does it get added after the flour is put in?
    Thanks for posting

    • Rebecca August 31, 2015 at 8:56 pm #

      Hi Lauren,
      There was actually an error in my recipe, so thank you so much for catching it! It should of read 1 3/4 C.
      Yes, you want the bouillon cube to dissolve or skip that step and go ahead and use about 14 oz. of prepared stock or broth.
      You will want to add the stock in after you make your roux with the butter and flour. Just mix the butter and flour together for about a minute or two and then slowly mix in the stock.
      Sorry for the confusion. I really appreciate that you would take the time to visit ad comment. I hope you are having a wonderful day!

    I’m preparing this dish now. Let’s see if it’s a hit with the kiddos. Very simple instructions.

  21. jwoodfine September 15, 2015 at 4:59 pm #

    hi there!
    Trying this tonight! I am wondering, would it be possible to make this dish up until the “place in the oven” stage and then freeze? I’m thinking it would make a great make ahead freezer meal… (I would probably do enough for 3-4 casserole dishes and remove from the freezer the morning before

    • Rebecca September 15, 2015 at 5:04 pm #

      Good afternoon!
      First of all, thank you for taking the time to visit and try this recipe!
      I haven’t personally done that but I had a mom that is part of a moms group email me to let me know that she made several to freeze to bring to new or sick mom’s. She said they turned out great and has since passed the recipe along to others.
      Please stop back to let me know how your experience is!
      Have a great day! ~Blessings~

  22. Monique September 29, 2015 at 12:31 pm #

    Hi there! I’m adding this to my menu this week it looks amazing! What type of cheese could you throw in there?

    • Rebecca September 29, 2015 at 2:34 pm #

      Hi Monique!
      I have tried a few different cheeses. My favorites are cheddar, Colby jack, or Monterey jack. I find it gives it a great creamy flavor without being too overpowering.
      I had someone message and say they make it with Velveeta and it has become a family favorite.
      I hope this helps. Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a great day!

  23. Jean October 6, 2015 at 3:16 pm #

    Have had this pinned for quite a while but just made it now. I used prepared stock, cream of mushroom soup, cheddar cheese and seasoned with salt, pepper and onion powder. The sauce tastes divine and can’t wait for it to come out of the oven! It is so easy to customize this to your family’s taste preferences. Thanks for the recipe!

    • Rebecca October 6, 2015 at 3:56 pm #

      Oh Jean, you blessed my heart! Thank you so much for stopping by and letting me know! I love how you customized it to your taste and it sounds delightful! Enjoy! Have a wonderful day!

  24. Misty October 28, 2015 at 2:06 pm #

    I love fix it & forget it meals. The pork chops turned out so tender & the potatoes were cheesy & awesome. My husband even told me they were really good (that’s a rave review from him)! Everyone cleaned their plates! Thanks for sharing!

    • Rebecca October 29, 2015 at 11:04 am #

      Hi Misty,
      I am so excited that you all enjoyed the recipe! Thank you so much for taking the time to let me know you tried it! I hope your day is extra blessed!

  25. Matt November 7, 2015 at 8:00 pm #

    The only thing I don’t like about this recipe is the lack of measurements. Is it one can of cream of chicken? And how much chicken stock, is that the 1 and 3/4 cup? Other than that, I can’t wait to try!

    • Rebecca November 12, 2015 at 6:16 pm #

      Hi Matt!
      Thank you so much for stopping by and leaving feedback. I apologize for the confusion. For the stock you would either use 1 3/4 C. prepared stock (14 oz. can) or 1-2 boullion cubes dissolved in 1 3/4 C. boiling water and just one can (approximate 10.75 0z) of cream of chicken soup. I hope this helps. If you would like, there is a printable recipe near the bottom of the page with the exact measurements. I hope you’re having a great day 🙂 Thanks again for visiting!

    Hi there! I just made this for supper (11-12-2015), I had to let you and your followers know how delicious this dish was. And it was SOOOO easy to make. THANK YOU!!!!!

    • Rebecca November 12, 2015 at 6:21 pm #

      Hi Sue!
      You just blessed my heart so much, thank you! I am so happy you enjoyed it as much as my family does! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and letting me know! I hope you’re having a wonderful day 🙂

  27. Cindy December 14, 2015 at 8:08 pm #

    I made this meal tonight for dinner the only thing I changed was I added a can of sharp cheddar cheese soup. I had it on hand and figured it would be the same as adding shredded cheese to it. It seem to go over good no complaints about it!

    • Rebecca December 16, 2015 at 9:11 pm #

      Hi Cindy,
      Thank you so much for taking the time to visit and letting me know how the recipe worked for you. I am glad it went over well! Adding a can of sharp cheddar soup is a brilliant idea! I have a feeling that might be even better! I am going to try that next time. Have a wonderful day!

  28. Sasha Barker December 31, 2015 at 6:19 am #

    This had my attention until I read can of Cream of Chicken Soup. Not healthy.

  29. Joyce Fleming June 15, 2017 at 12:47 pm #

    hi 🙂 love this recipe, was wondering if I could bake with chicken and cook the same way? thx so much 4 sharing, my family loved it!

    • Rebecca December 10, 2018 at 2:19 pm #

      Thank you so much for the kind compliment! I’m so happy to hear your family enjoyed it! Yes, chicken would also work and it will be equally delicious! Thank you so much for stopping by and please let me know how you like it with chicken 😃

  33. Kathy January 17, 2019 at 12:49 pm #

    I want to make this in an instant pot. Do you know how I would do it?

    • Rebecca January 21, 2019 at 6:47 pm #

      Kathy, I’m so sorry but I have yet to get an instant pot. If you do decide to try it out I would love to hear how it went. Good luck!!

  34. Carolyn January 28, 2019 at 9:31 am #

    Cooking for 2 hours, how is it possible the chops wouldn’t be dry!
