The biggest problem is that there are soooo many different options on various sites about the calorie content of pork chops, depending on size and depending on how it's cooked. Here's the recipe. Please help if you can.

7 pork chops (about 3 lbs. total)
1/2 c. flour
1 Tbsp. salt
1 (10 oz.) can chicken and rice soup (I'm using Campbell's.)
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
2 Tbsp. oil

Coat pork chops in mixture of flour, salt, and garlic powder, and brown in oil in skillet. Place browned pork chops in crock -pot. Add can of soup. Cover and cook on low for 6 - 8 hours or on high for 3 1/2 hours.

I use myfitnesspal. I got 207 calories for battered, fried, pork chop for 4 oz. That's 51.75 calories per ounce. 51.75 x 7 oz = 362.25. Then add the 25 for the soup = 387.25. I didn't use all the flour that the recipe calls for so I didn't think it would be a good idea to just add the calories of each thing. Half the breading went in the trash. What calorie count did you use for just the chops? Myfitnesspal varies greatly on the calorie count.

Have you tried loseit.com yet?

My absolute favorite is the recipe analyzer at CalorieCount.  You can just do a search for it. (that's how I always find it--I probably should just bookmark it at this point).  You can copy and paste the whole recipe in and it will analyze not just calories, but the full nutirional content.  

Hope that helps!

If it were me I'd just check it on a couple different sites and estimate.

I mainly just use myfitnesspal when doing calories.  I know it's never going to be exact for anything but it gives you an estimate
