Breaded Pork Chops
Next to fried chicken, I think this is one of the favorite Pinoy fried food. And this is one of the simplest and easiest dish you can cook. Like breaded fried chicken, it is tasty, golden crispy outside and tender and moist inside. The ingredients are also easy to find and you can actually find them in your kitchen pantry and your freezer. There are also lots of ready to use breading mix you can find in most supermarkets so can omit most of the ingredients in this recipe. Aside from that, this is appealing to kids so it will be easy for you to please them. Serve it with your favorite dipping sauce and your are ready to enjoy this dish!
