Sour Cream Pork Chops - 7 points, "Rotisserie" Chicken #2 - 3 + points

For dinner, I decided to try pork in a sour cream sauce. Now, this is a recipe I had to majorly overhaul to fit with my new Weight Watcher's lifestyle. I was not expecting great things. I was not even expecting good things. Imagine my surprise when this turned out to be better than the high fat version I was craving! Leaving out the breading and the butter seemed to allow the flavors of the pork and the paprika to come out even more beautifully.

Sour Cream Pork Chops
1/2 tbsp olive oil
2, 4 ounce pork chops
1 cube chicken bouillon
8 oz canned, sliced mushrooms, drained
1 tsp djon mustard
2 tbsp parsley
1 tbsp paprika
1 small onion, sliced into rings
1/2 cup fat free sour cream
1/4 cup water

1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add pork chops, cooking just to brown on both sides.
2. Mix remaining ingredients, save sour cream and onions, in a small bowl.
3. Layer onion rings over pork; place remaining onions directly on the skillet. Pour the sauce over the chops.
4. Simmer for 1 hour, or until pork is very tender.
5. Add sour cream; reheat.
6. Yields 2, 7 point servings



I also made a "Rotisserie" chicken tonight. I will use the meat this week, and it is much easier to roast a chicken on a Sunday afternoon than to try and fix one after work. Instead of my usual seasonings, I used an incredible rub from A Year of Slow Cooking. I didn't skin my chicken. I rubbed the spices both under and over the skin as well as placing some on the cavity. I highly recommend it; it does taste just like the rotisserie chicken that I love from Sam's Club. Stone - former best friend and new boyfriend -  obviously approves as well, since I just caught him leaning over the stone with an empty fork and a full mouth.

  5. Oooh that sounds good. I'm always looking for new ways to do pork because I usually have a ton of it in my freezer (it always goes on sale). I'll have to give this a try sometime!
