Fried Pork Chops in Lemon Butter Sauce

Delicious Fried Pork Chops in Lemon Butter Sauce - crispy on the outside and so delicious and tender on the inside!

Ah!!! You guys!! I am so excited to share this tried and true recipe with you today. If you actually read any of my posts, you know I’m kind of a child when it comes to food. I don’t do veggies and, in my opinion, the less fancy a meal is, the better! I am perfectly content with a PB&J and a cold glass of milk 🙂 When it comes to meat, chicken is my go-to. Having said that, many of the people in my family LOVE pork chops. In fact, it’s my mom’s favorite. I rarely eat it, but that recently changed when we made a new pork chops recipe at last month’s photo shoot day.

I had seen that we were slated to make fried Pork Chops in lemon butter sauce, and although I wasn’t excited about them I’m glad I caved and gave them a try. They were SO INCREDIBLY good! These pork chops were crunchy on the outside, super tender and juicy on the inside and so flavorful. You’ve got to try it for yourself! Everyone loved this recipe and I couldn’t be more proud of myself for loving it too. I think I’m a grown up now! 😉

Fried to perfection!

    I love pork chops! I haven’t tried a recipe like this one, though! We’re having friends over for dinner this Saturday and I hadn’t decided on a menu, but now I have! This is going to be great with some mashed potatoes!

    This was delicious & very easy to make. I love pork chops, my sister hates pork chops. All she can remember was the way our mother made them( it wasn’t good). Can’t wait to send her the link to this. Thanks for a great recipe.
