Whether you’re craving a taste of nostalgia or seeking a satisfying meal that’s both delicious and WW-friendly, these fried pork chops are sure to hit the spot.

Ingredients and Preparation: To recreate this classic Southern favorite, you’ll need bone-in pork chops, all-purpose flour, eggs, buttermilk, salt, black pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, and vegetable oil for frying. Begin by seasoning the pork chops generously with salt, pepper, garlic powder, onion powder, and paprika, ensuring each chop is thoroughly coated with flavor. In a shallow dish, whisk together the buttermilk and eggs to create a creamy dredging mixture. Dip each seasoned pork chop into the buttermilk and egg mixture, then coat it with seasoned flour, pressing gently to adhere the coating. Repeat the dredging process for a thicker crust if desired.

Frying to Perfection: In a large skillet or cast-iron pan, heat vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C). Carefully place the coated pork chops into the hot oil, ensuring they are not overcrowded in the pan. Fry the pork chops for 4-5 minutes on each side, or until they are golden brown and cooked through, with an internal temperature of 145°F (63°C). Use tongs to flip the pork chops halfway through cooking, ensuring even browning on both sides. Once cooked, transfer the fried pork chops to a wire rack or paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess oil.

Serving and Enjoyment: Serve the WW Classic Southern Fried Pork Chops hot and crispy, alongside your favorite Southern sides such as mashed potatoes, collard greens, cornbread, or macaroni and cheese.
