  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder
  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • pinch of cayenne more if you like it spicy
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 4 pork chops 3/4 inch thick, bone-in
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • Fresh flat leaf parsley chopped, for garnish


  • Add flour, garlic and onion powder, salt, cayenne and black pepper into a shallow dish and stir to combine. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towels and then dredge in the flour mixture.
  • Heat large sauté pan over medium high heat and add oil to the pan.
  • When the oil is hot add the pork chops to the pan in a single layer and fry for 3 minutes on each side until golden brown.
  • Remove the pork chops from the pan.
  • Add two tablespoons of seasoned flour mixture to the pan drippings. Mix the flour into the fat to dissolve. Pour in the chicken broth. Let the liquid cook down for 5 minutes to reduce and thicken slightly.
  • Stir in the buttermilk and return the pork chops to the pan, covering them with the sauce.
  • Simmer for 5 minutes until the pork is cooked through.
  • Season with salt and pepper and garnish with chopped parsley before serving.
