" This is a great recipe. Flavorful, tender pork chops every time. So easy to prepare and ready in a half hour. What more could you want. "

" So a few weeks ago I tried this recipe on a whim, I knew the french's fried crunchy onion chicken recipe was yummilicious but my family was wanting pork chops & I wanted something different than the usual blah blah so on the hunt for something different & found this recipe & O-M-GEEEEE this was fantabulous & so happy I did!! My family has been raving & wanting more ever since so here we are again me making this wonderful dish again. Thankfully I had a huge bag(I buy in bulk) in my cubboard with JUST enough for this recipe. I went with the extra tips of the garlic powder(we only have garlic salt so used that) & the thyme leaves in the recipe I also had some shredded cheese left in my 'fridge & thought of adding a cup shredded cheese to the recipe. This was SOOOOOOOOO beyond delicious & WAYYYY better then the store bought fresh-takes. My best advice is DEF add the garlic salt/powder(which ever your family has) & thyme leaves it def gives it that extra umph of flavor!! "

" O-M-Geee this was absolutely fabulous. I made this tonight for dinner & went with the extra tip of adding 1/4tsp of garlic powder(used 1/2tsp of garlic salt instead since that's all we have in the house) & 1/4tsp of thyme leaves...I also added 1C of shredded cheddar cheese & this was sooo delicious & flavorful, so much better then Kraft's Freshtakes & any store bought Shake & Bake. Thank you for the wonderful idea!! We def will be having this one again, even pinned it on pinterest for others to use & me to use again & again. "

" This is so delicious! It's even better when you use a Pork Tenderloin cut into medallions. It is crunchy on the outside and tender on the inside. My husband and 10 year old son LOVE it! "

" i've made this dish many times and have always come across the same dilemma...the onions ALWAYS came out soggy. tonight i found the solution. 1) combine french's fried onions and flour as the original recipe calls for. 2) season mixture with garlic salt and pepper 3)SLIGHTLY crush onion mixture ( i found that leaving the onions more intact=crispier finished product) 4) beat 1 egg 5) dip pork chop into egg, wipe off any excess...u just need enough to make the onion mixture adhere. 6) place on foil lined cookie sheet 7) take a handful of onion mixture and press firmly onto pork chop...covering the entire surface. 8) cook at 400 degrees for 20 mins the end result is a tende perfectly cooked pork chop with awesome crunch and family looooved it!

" This is a very simple to make dish! It taste great & my husband who is a picky eater ate every last pork chop! :) Great Recipe! Tip: When I crushed my French's French Onions I decided to add a little all Italian seasoning and some chill powder to season the French Onions and it turned out great! I put the french onions and the seasoning into a zip lock baggie and used the 'shake and bake" method to coat my pork! YUMO! "

" This is a easy recipe & I used Stove Top Stuffing. Put the stuffing on the bottom of a large baking dish, then the French's Fried Chop on top. I serve on the side a gravey, made from the bacon dripping. "

" I voted for this receipe because I love the French's french fried onions and I love baked pork chops, so the combination of the two together sounds and looks good. Secondly, the receipe is simple, prep and cooking times are short; making this an easy receipe to whip up for a busy working mom like myself. "

" Onions and Pork seem to be a perfect match. Rather than saute the onions - I like the idea of encrusting the porkchops with onions. "

" We would love this recipe because we like pork chops but have never found a recipe that has crunchy texture on the pork chop. Since they are baked, it will be healthier than frying them too. "

" We do not eat pork chops very often and then they are "dull." French's Crunchy Onion Pork Chops will give us a tasty, dressed up meal...a treat on which we have been missing out. "

" There's nothing better than pork chops and fried onions,so french fried onions have to be fantastic,YUM! "

reviewed by: jeanneg | Mar, 13, 2010

" The coating adds a lot of flavor and it keeps the meat moist. Pork has a tendency to be dry if it is overcooked, but I don't want it to be undercooked, so depending on the thickness of the chop sometimes it's in the oven too long. This is a terrific solution. "

" We are a family of 4 with 2 teenage daughters who are very active. We love having family dinners at home but after working all day and going to the girls sports events in the evening there is never enough time to prepare a full meal. This is perfect because of the time it takes to prepare! It makes me feel like I have slaved away all day making supper for my family when after 20 minutes IT'S DONE! And I can relax right along with the rest of my family! Till time to leave again for another game! :) Thanks French's! "
