Ingredients

  • 1 6 ounce package uncooked wild rice (plus included seasoning packet)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups fresh broccoli florets cut into bite-sized pieces
  • ½ cup frozen diced onion or about ½ of a small fresh onion, diced
  • 4 tablespoons butter sliced into 7 or 8 chunks
  • 4 thick-cut boneless pork chops about 6 ounces each
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • ½ cup shredded mozzarella cheese

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350F (180).
  • Spray an 8- or 9-inch square baking dish with cooking spray. Place uncooked rice in the prepared dish.
  • Add broth and seasoning packet, whisking until combined. Stir in broccoli florets and diced onion.
  • Place butter on rice. Add pork chops on top, season with salt and pepper, to taste.
  • Cover dish tightly with foil.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until rice is tender and pork is cooked through. Fluff the rice with a fork.
  • Switch oven to BROIL on high.
  • Sprinkle top of pork chops with Parmesan and add shredded mozzarella over all. Place casserole under the broiler (uncovered) for about 3-5 minutes, or until cheese is melted and golden brown on top.

Notes

Cooking Just for Two? I buy my thick-cut pork chops in packages of 2, so it's very easy to just cook 2 pork chops at a time. I would still keep the remaining ingredients the same (i.e., use the full box of rice, the full 2 cups of broth, etc.). Simply put the 2 pork chops on top of your rice and broccoli mixture rather than 4 pork chops. The cooking instructions remain the same.
