These baked pork chops and creamy potatoes are the perfect family friendly dinner for busy weeknights. The pork is perfectly cooked and truly melts in your mouth. This is my favorite type of recipe since it's easy and everyone in the family loves it.
Even better, the recipe is very forgiving! If you get distracted signing field trip forms or helping one of the kids with homework and accidentally cook it too long, it still stays incredibly moist and delicious.
How to Make Baked Pork Chops and Creamy Potatoes
This recipe is really easy to throw together. First, you just need to peel and dice some potatoes.
Next, you add some diced green pepper, shredded cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic, and chicken broth.
Stir it all together and pour into a casserole dish.
Top with the pork chops and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Finally, cover it with foil and toss it in the oven and bake for 45 minutes. I like a nice brown crust on top so I remove the foil and broil it for an additional two minutes at the end.
To serve it, I place the pork chop on each plate and then top it with the creamy potato mixture. Trust me, your family will be drooling while they're waiting to dig in!

Here's the printable version of the recipe.
- 3 pork chops
- 3 potatoes
- 1/2 green pepper
- 1/4 cup shredded cheese
- 1/4 cup sour cream

- Salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350°F.
Peel and chop up potatoes and place in a large bowl.
Dice the green pepper and add it to the potatoes.
Shred your cheese, then add that along with the sour cream, mayonnaise, garlic and chicken broth to the potatoes.
Stir everything until well combined then pour into a casserole dish.
Place the pork chops on top of the potatoes and season to taste with salt and pepper.

If you like a bit of browning (sear) on your meat, remove the foil and turn on the broiler for 2 minutes to brown the pork - but watch it closely!
