Ingredients Required

As always, the full recipe is on the printable recipe card at the end of this post.

  • Pork Chops: I use boneless pork chops for this recipe, yet you can use bone-in chops if you want.
  • French Onion Dip: You’ll want the liquid container, not the onion soup mix dry packet.
  • Sour Cream: Used in the sauce, and you can use whatever % of sour cream you’d like.
  • Packet Brown Gravy Mix: This adds flavour, just like the beef broth would in a bowl of french onion soup. Alternately, you can use our Homemade Onion Soup Mix recipe.
  • Mozzarella Cheese: I always have shredded mozzarella cheese on hand. Yet you can use another bold cheese if you’d like. I go over that more in the recipe FAQ’s below.
  • Salt and Pepper: Sprinkled onto the pork chops, for taste.

How to Make French Onion Pork Chops

  6. Bake uncovered 40-50 minutes or until pork chops reach an internal temp of 145 degrees (using a meat thermometer) and the top is golden brown. Garnish with fresh parsley if desired, and serve warm.

TIP: Tent a piece of aluminum foil over the pan if the top is browning too much and too fast while baking.

FAQs about French Onion Pork Chops

Yes you can! I use mozza cheese because we love it and I usually have it on hand. Yet you can also use some Provolone cheese, Gouda cheese, Gruyere cheese, or Swiss cheese. These will add a stronger cheese taste too.

You can use either boneless or bone-in pork chops for this recipe. Adjust bake-time depending on size though!

Dry pork chops is almost always due to overcooking. Try to cook to an internal temperature of 145°F or just above that, to ensure they are safe to eat – and juicy.

Also, baking pork chops in a mixture like this recipe does, helps a lot too. The secret to making tender pork chops, is to cook them with plenty of liquid to hold in that moisture.

Baked French Onion Pork Chops - juicy and tender pork chops smothered in a creamy sauce with melty cheese and crispy fried onions on top. An easy-to-make dinner option that's perfect for busy weeknights or special occasions.


  • 6-8 Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops, cut approximately 1 ½ inches thick

  • 1 Cup Sour Cream
  • 1 (0.87oz) Packet Brown Gravy Mix
  • 1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese
  • 1 ½ cups French-fried Onions
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. and prepare a 9x13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. 
  2. Place pork chops in baking dish and lightly season with salt and pepper. 
  3. In a small bowl combine French onion dip, sour cream and brown gravy mix. 
  4. Spread mixture evenly over pork chops. 
  5. Top with mozzarella cheese and French-fried onions. 
  6. Bake 40-50 minutes or until pork chops reach an internal temp of 145 degrees. 


  • Make sure to use the French onion dip found in the refrigerated section of the grocery store. The shelf-stable variety does not come out the same. 
  • If using thin cut pork chops instead of thick cut, be sure to reduce cooking time. I would suggest checking their internal temp at 30 minutes. 
  • Store leftovers in the fridge in an airtight container for up to 4 days.

  1. Can’t wait to make this recipe because we love “Heluva Good French Onion Dip and also use French Fried Onions often with other recipes. But 1 1/2 thick pork chops seem big – like a stuffing chop! Is this correct? Also, is water added to the packet of the brown gravy mix? Thanks for a yummy sounding recipe!!

    1. I had 6 thick chops and made the recipe as written. So delicious and my husband loved it too. Thank you for a tasty and simple recipe!

  2. The french fried onions, placed on last, seemed to get too over done/brown. May try adding halfway thru baking. Also, can cream cheese replace the sour cream (not a fan of)? Yummy recipe

  3. Whenever I make a dish with the french fried onions; I place them on top the last 10 min or til just browned to crisp them up a bit. The sour cream CAN be replaced
    with cream cheese; I would have a room temperature or microwave til soft so you can stir and mix it in with the french onion dip and brown gravy mix. cream cheese and sour cream are good substitutes for each other

  4. This was delicious!! I only had a tub of sour cream, but mixed it with a tiny amount of onion dip that I had left and a heavy hand of onion powder and garlic powder too! Shredded my own mild cheddar and also went heavy with that as well! Used a whole small tub of french’s fried onions on top and they were perfect! We used 2 4 packs of porkchops and my husband is looking forward to left overs! 😋
