The "secret" for how to cook juicy tender pork chops is easy, like...really easy! Honest.

This basic recipe is great for cooking pork chops in the oven or the air fryer or the oven. Depending on how many I'm making at a time I choose which option will work best but either way, these pork chops are juicy (not dry like a shoe), and tender...you can cut them easily...and chew easily, too.
