I made a great chicken dish last night with cheese and salsa on baked chicken breasts. It was yummy! I think chicken is quite versitile and can be cooked a variety of ways. I have trouble with pork chops though, I want them to be very tender but they turn out dry especially when I fry them. Maybe I fry them too long, not sure. If I make them in the slow cooker or bake them in the oven they turn out better. Do you have trouble cooking pork chops , what do you do to make them more tender when frying or broiling them? Your thoughts, My Lot , friends.

When I fry pork chops I put seasoned salt on first and fry in a little bit of olive oil. Then after both sides are browned I put a cup of beef broth in the frying pan, cover and let simmer for 20-30 minutes. Sometimes I will put small white potatoes in the frying pan to cook in the broth, usually adding 2 cups of broth instead of 1. That's an alternative you might want to consider. The longer the meat simmers, the more tender the meat. Just make sure the liquid doesn't steam away.

I like pork chops more than chicken, but when I fry them I place a pot lid over them and brig the fire down after I turn them over. That cooks them without drying them. I place them on the place the fried part up. I like my pork with real mashed potatoes or potatoes in any way.

When doing fried chicken, I usually breaded it, while frozen, with mixture of cornstarch, flour and seasonings. Slowly deep fry it. This yields tender and juicy fried chicken. On the other hand, tender pork chops, I usualy marinate it for at least 30 minutes (much better overnight) and cook it from low to medium fire.

hi there, yeah yo are right, chicken can be cooked in many different ways, and so are pork . If i cook pork chops as it is, like just fried or grilled, i pt some salt, pepper, or sometimes with oregano, depending on how i want them to taste. it is not as juicy when i grill or fry them. and, if i wanna cook it with sauce, then i let it simmer longer to me it more tender and easy to chew happy mylotting!!
