I didn't have any basil so I left that out. The dish turned out perfect though. I substituted powdered garlic instead of fresh chopped. I will defiantly make this again. Served it with mashed potatoes and green beans.

This is one of my favorite Go To pork chop recipes. I use canned diced tomatoes because it doesn't make any sense to buy whole canned tomatoes and chop them when they can be bought that way. We serve ours over white rice and it is delicious.

We usually just have plain porkchops, but I saw this recipe and decided to try it. I didn't have any garlic but I did have canned diced tomatoes with basil and garlic so I used those. Turned out delicious. My husband raved about them to his friends.
