Pork Chop Stuffing Bake

It doesn’t get much easier than a package of pork chops, a can of condensed cream of mushroom soup, some sautéed veggies, and savory stuffing mix.

We love this combo for an easy weeknight dinner, because it only takes about 10 minutes to prep, about 5 minutes of stovetop time, then the rest of the time is hands-off!

How to Make Pork Chop and Stuffing Bake

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F, and spray a 9×13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. Arrange the pork chops into the pan in an even layer, and set aside.
  2. In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring the chicken broth and butter to a boil. Remove from heat, and stir in the stuffing mix. Cover, and let sit for 5 minutes.

  2. Remove the foil about 5 minutes before the pork chops finish cooking, and return the pan to oven to crisp up the stuffing. Ensure the pork chops reach 145°F on an instant read thermometer.

Pork Chop and Stuffing Bake Tips

Tips
  • Don’t over bake the pork chops! When pork chops are over baked, they become dry, tough, and difficult to cut.
  • Wrap the pan tightly with foil. You’ll want to make sure the pan is wrapped tightly so the pork chops don’t dry out.
  • Cook to the correct temp. Make sure to cook the pork chops until they reach an internal temperature of 145°F.

Substitutions and Variations

  • Condensed Soup: If you aren’t a fan of cream of mushroom soup or don’t have it handy, try cream of chicken or cream of celery instead.
  • Sautéed Veggies: For a super simple recipe, omit the celery and onions. It may alter the flavor, but it removes an entire step.
  • Omit the Sour Cream: I love to add sour cream to add extra creaminess, but you don’t have to use it. Or, add a little milk, heavy cream, or half and half instead.
  • For extra flavor, add some Worcestershire sauce or soy sauce to the soup mixture.
  • Seasonings: Garlic powder is a flavorful mix-in, but don’t forget about paprika, thyme, onion powder, sage, or your other favorite seasonings.
  • Choose your favorite stuffing flavor. There are several different varieties and flavors of stuffing mix. I love savory herb stuffing, but turkey and chicken are some other tasty options.

Storage

Refrigerator: Store leftover pork chop and stuffing bake in the refrigerator for up to 3 days.

Reheating: Microwave leftover pork chops until warmed through, or warm in the oven on 350°F to help maintain texture.

FAQs

The pork chops need to be between ½ and ¾-inch thick; otherwise, the cooking time needs to be adjusted.

Yes, you can use bone-in pork chops, but I’d recommend searing them first. And, you’ll want to increase the cooking time to ensure they cook all the way through.

About 5 minutes before the pork chops finish baking, remove the foil from the pan. Let the pork chop stuffing bake cook uncovered the rest of the way.

The top of the stuffing should dry out a little and become crunchy and delicious. For stuffing with a little more moisture, add ½ cup extra chicken broth.

Notes

*The calories listed are an approximation based on the ingredients in the recipe card and a serving size of 1 pork chop with stuffing topping. Actual calories will vary.
*Adjust the time depending on the thickness of the pork chops. Thin pork chops take about 20 minutes while thicker pork chops take 30-35 minutes. The ones in the photos were thinly cut, about ½-inch or just a smidge under, so they didn’t as long to bake.

    I’m thinking, too many pots and bowls. I have an aversion to dirtying too many dishes. Saute the veggies in a large pot, add the broth and cream of whatever. Pour over chops. In the same pot, heat up the broth and butter, stir in the dry dressing. No need to clean the pot in between! Let the dressing sit for 5 minutes, fluff with a fork and layer on top of the chops which have been covered by the veggie/sauce mixture. One pot, along with the casserole dish.
    This is a great recipe, and the results are fantastic!

    1. Good morning Joyce, thank you for commenting, making suggestions, and rating the recipe. Kim and I are glad you enjoyed the pork chops, in spite of the dishes. Have a lovely day 🙂
