(3/4-inch) bone-in pork loin chops (7 to 8 oz each), trimmed
teaspoon ground black pepper
cup thinly sliced yellow onion
clove garlic, finely chopped
cup Progresso™ chicken broth (from 32-oz carton)
cup heavy whipping cream
cup uncooked regular white rice
tablespoons chopped fresh Italian (flat-leaf) parsley leaves
In 10-inch nonstick skillet, melt 1 tablespoon butter over medium heat. Rub pork chops with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the pepper. Add pork to skillet; cook 4 to 6 minutes, turning once, until brown on both sides. Using tongs, transfer to plate.
Add remaining 1 tablespoon butter to skillet; melt over medium heat. Add onion and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until onion softens. Stir in garlic. Stir in broth and whipping cream; heat to boiling. Stir in rice; return to boiling.
Place pork over rice. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 20 to 25 minutes or until most of liquid is absorbed, pork is no longer pink and meat thermometer inserted in center reads at least 145°F. Sprinkle with parsley.

More About This Recipe
- Pork chops are one of those dinners that feels fancy but is shockingly simple to make. This pork chops and rice recipe is no exception; it’s a one-pot dinner which is always a win if you ask us, and it’s made for two people, which is perfect for date-night in or if you’re cooking for one and love leftovers. The creamy rice rounds out the dinner as a comforting side dish, but if you’re looking to add a little greenery to your plate, we recommend steamed broccoli, asparagus or a small garden salad. Another thing we love about this pork chop recipe is how easily you can switch up the flavor by experimenting with the seasonings. We started basic with salt, pepper and parsley, but Italian seasoning or red pepper flakes taste great, too!
