Today’s recipe has been submitted by Campbell’s Kitchen.

Polynesian Pork Chops
4 boneless pork chops, 3⁄4-inch thick (about 1 pound)
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1 medium onion, chopped (about 1⁄2 cup)
1 can (103⁄4 ounces) Campbell’s® Condensed Golden Mushroom Soup
1⁄4 cup water
1 can (about 8 ounces) pineapple chunks, un-drained
3 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup regular long-grain white rice, prepared according to package directions (about 3 cups)
Sliced green onion

Season the pork with the garlic powder.
Heat the oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook until well browned on both sides.
Stir the onion, soup, water, pineapple with juice, soy sauce and honey in the skillet and heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes or until the pork is cooked through. Serve the pork and sauce with the rice and sprinkle with the green onion.
