It's one-pot meal week at Reservation for Two, which means I'll be showing you 5 terrific no-fuss, no-mess meals.  

What I love about one-pot meals
One-pot meals are wonderful when you want to get in and out of the kitchen quickly.  Also, knowing that you only have 1 pot waiting to be cleaned, offers a great sense of mealtime serenity.  And of course, taste never has to suffer as a result of the lack of pots and pans that you're using.  All of the recipes that I will share this week are hearty and flavorful.  

My first one-pot, 2 serving meal is Creamy Rice and Broccoli Pork Chops.   
This is my sister Kelly's recipe, and I love everything about it -- it's creamy, delicious and easy. 

Creamy Rice and Broccoli Pork Chops 
Total Time:  30 Minutes
Prep Time:  5 Minutes
Cook Time:  25 Minutes

What you'll need
2 bone-in thick cut pork chops
1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
1 package of Lipton Chicken flavor rice
1 cup frozen broccoli florets
3/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon olive oil
salt and pepper

1.  Warm olive oil in a medium dutch oven or pot over medium-high heat.
2.  Season both sides of the pork chops with salt and pepper.
3.  Add pork chops to the pot.  Brown on both sides, approximately 2-3 minutes per side. 
4.  While the pork chops are browning, mix together rice packet, cream of chicken soup, broccoli and milk.  Pour over the top of the pork chops.
5.  Cover and cook over low heat for 20-25 minutes depending on the thickness of the pork chops. 
6.  Once pork chops are cooked through, serve and enjoy!

I will be trying this recipe tonight, was online looking for a different recipe for pork chops, I had so many chops in my freezer because they had a big sale and we are tired of eating them the same ways. I will be posting later to say how they turned out. This recipe does sound delish....can't wait to try them.
