Baked Spicy Bourbon Pork Chops

Friday, May 7, 2021
These Baked Spicy Bourbon Pork Chops are the perfect weeknight dinner and we have several cooking methods that await you to even include air fried.


These pork chops are thick, juicy slathered with a delightfully spicy flavor.


These are perfect every time and the best because they start out in a brine.


That seals in the natural juices and keeps them tender and also for those who prefer nonalcohol substitute apple juice, it's a perfect combination for pork.


Pork chops lovers, beware, these are scrumptious and addicting in flavor and if you're not a huge fan of pork, use chicken.
