I studied the Publix sale this week. The pork chops were a great price, but assorted pork chops are never that great of a quality. So, I had to think hard! There were times (pre-couponing) that the really cheap meats were all we could afford. This recipe is not only budget friendly but delicious! Did I mention quick and easy!
It is also very versatile. You can change the ingredients around and turn it into several new recipes. I typically use what I have on hand. This is one of those meals you can throw together with items from your pantry and freezer in no time! Plus, you only have one skillet to clean!
One Skillet Creamy Chops and Rice
- 4-6 pork chops (boneless/or bone in)
- 2 cups regular long grain rice
- 2 cans Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 2 cans water
- Salt and pepper
- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- 8 oz. frozen peas
Place the olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
Remove the Pork chops from the pan and place on a plate.
Whisk together the 2 cans of soup and the 2 cans of water. Pour into skillet. Heat the soup mix until boiling.
You can change this recipe in so many ways.
- Use a different type of cream soup.
- Use a different frozen veggie.
- Use Chicken instead of pork.
