Southern Fried Pork Chops are sprinkled with seasoned salt, pepper and a little cayenne, if you want some spice, then dredged in flour and pan fried until perfectly golden and delicious! This southern favorite is simple, but oh so scrumptious!Southern Fried Pork Chops were a staple at my house growing up! Actually, I think most people often think of “fried” as the perfect synonym for southern. I certainly agree, something juicy and fried are one of the most delicious things you ever sink your teeth into!
I can remember my mom standing at the stove pan frying pork chops and us sitting around the kitchen counter and waiting very impatiently. And once you take a bite of these you will know why!
In this age of trying to watch what we eat (well sort of), at least by that I mean I don’t make fried foods every week, this is a treat at my house when I do. And we all deserve southern comfort food every now and again, RIGHT?
Fried pork chops tend to make everyone at my house happy anyway! They especially love it when paired with Instant Pot Mac N Cheese and southern collard greens!
One thing is for certain this is really a simple dish. Southern Food at its root is simple and tasty!

- Remove pork chops from package, wash and pat dry. Place pork chops on a cutting board. Using a meat mallet, pound both sides.
- In one bowl, add egg and milk. Mix with fork until smooth. In another bowl, add flour, chicken flavored base, and seasonings, mix well. Dredge pork chops in flour mixture, then dip in milk and egg mixture. Roll in flour mixture.
- Heat about 1″ oil in heavy skillet (I use a cast-iron chicken fryer). When oil is hot, add pork chops, no more than 2 to 3 at a time. Fry about 3 to 5 minutes per side, until golden and juices run clear. Remove to serving platter. Repeat with remaining pork chops. Serve hot with your favorite side dishes.
- Chicken flavored base is a moist powder and it is available in most grocery stores in the soup/bullion aisle.
