This oven baked pork chop recipe is from Gooseberry Patch’s Garfield… Recipes with Cattitude! I love having meals that I can prepare ahead of time and then just put them in the oven when it’s time to eat. When the weather is nice, I like to go outside for a walk or enjoy a local attraction. The summers are so short in Vermont that I like to take advantage of as much nice weather as I can. The weather showed that Sunday was going to be fairly nice this weekend so I knew I was going to be out in the garden and enjoying a long walk. I didn’t want to have to be rushed at the last minute making dinner so I decided to try this new oven baked pork chop recipe. Of course, knowing how Garfield likes to eat, I made a few tweaks to the recipe to lower the fat content. I started with lean porkchops. Instead of frying them in oil, I fried them in a non-stick pan which eliminated the need for oil. I used Campbell’s Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom Soup which is lower in saturated fat and cholesterol. I used low fat milk and instead of sour cream, I used plain, non fat Greek yogurt. The result was amazing.
