This easy meal is a fun twist on marry me chicken. That recipe has been having quite the run on TikTok lately.

As much as I love a good TikTok famous recipe, I love doing a twist even more. Cooking pork chops and a creamy sauce in the slow cooker all day long always makes for such juicy fork tender chops.

So, this recipe is a perfect way to highlight pork chops. Luckily, it is easy enough to make on a busy weekday, but it is good enough to serve to company as well!

Tips and Tricks

This recipe is as easy as can be, so there aren’t a ton of tips and tricks. The slow cooker does most of the work for you. Just add the ingredients and let it do its thing.

Though it is tempting to open the lid and maybe give things a stir, don’t. Crockpots work best when you leave them alone and let them cook.

Every time you open the lid, you let out heat and steam. Because the cooking temperature is low to start with, dropping it further really affects the cooking.

It may be tempting to try to substitute milk for cream in the sauce. While this would save some calories, the cream is what makes the sauce so luscious and delicious.

If you can’t help yourself, try using evaporated milk. Standard milk is likely to curdle during the cooking process.

Serving Suggestions and Substitutions

You are going to want to serve these crockpot pork chops with something that will help to soak up that sauce. Mashed potatoes make a great base for the chops and gravy.

However, you could also serve them with rice or egg noodles. Really any pasta shape would do, just make sure you have something to help you get that sauce to your taste buds.

If you like some spice in your life, add some red pepper flakes to the sauce before you cook it.

For more veggies, you can stir in some spinach when there is about a half hour of cook time left.

Mushrooms would be another tasty addition. Stirring in sauteed mushrooms at the end would give them the best flavor and texture.

If you want to add canned mushrooms you can do that at the beginning of the cook time.

You can use bone in pork chops or the boneless pork loin chops. If you are using thicker pork chops, just make sure they are cooked through before serving.

Whole pork cuts can be served once they reach an internal temperature of 145F. Though these will be delicious cooked to higher internal temperatures.

Because they are cooked in a creamy sauce, they don’t dry out like pork chops sometimes can when they are overcooked.

I made this exactly as instructed in the recipe. I opted for 4 hours on high in the crockpot. It was watery and did not thicken, instead it seemed to separate. It also lacked flavor, which was so disappointing since it smelled delicious.
