Easy Dinner - Pork Chops and Rice

Another old stand-by in our family is Pork Chops and Rice (which can also be made with chicken - but then it's called Chicken and Rice).

To make enough for 6 you need:

3 large pork chops (or 6 small ones)
1 1/2 cups of rice
3 cups of boiling water
3 rounded teaspoons of chicken bouillon
1/2 cup raisins (optional)
1 orange, peeled and cut into small pieces (optional)

(eew raw meat - I shrunk the picture down as it was just a little too disgusting to look at.  
See how considerate I am)

Here are the extremely complicated and time-consuming instructions:
  1. Put the rice in the bottom of a 9 x 13 inch pan with pork chops on top.
  2. Mix the bouillon into the boiling water and pour gently over the rice and pork chops.
  3. Cover and cook for 1 hour in a 350 degree oven.
  4. In the last 5 minutes mix in the orange pieces or raisins, if using.
See how easy that is, and it is sooooo yummy.  Have a look at the finished product - much more appetizing don't you think?

I only added raisins, as we were out of oranges and I cut the meat up so it was easier to serve.  I made squash and broccoli to round out the dinner.

Remember to freeze any leftover rice to use in freezer fairy soup.
