I have a pack of thin pork chops bone in and my usual way of making them is frying them but I am looking healthier alternatives. Usually when I make them any other way they come out dry. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

@ashley99: Korean BBQ sauce makes a great marinade for pork chops– you can broil them for about 4-6 minutes per side and they stay juicy. I serve them with rice and a sauteed veggie like spinach or snowpeas.
This is the brand we like:

On allrecipes.com search for ranch pork chops. They are super simple and really delicious. obviousky yoi have to like ranch flavor. I basically followed the recipe but I added a few more spices and I baked on lower temp for 1 hour

@ashley99: I like to marinade mine and bake them. I’ve used both Italian dressing and teriyaki marinade as well and they were both tasty!
Bake for 20-30 minutes flipping them half way. When nearing the end of the baking time use a meat thermometer to check for doneness. A done chop is at 145 degrees.
Serve with brown rice and veggies-very tasty and healthy!

We just use extra cruncy shake ‘n bake but I’m a salt addict.

@ashley99: I have a weight watchers recipe that I love! They are super moist and yummy, and I never would have guessed they are a healthy recipe by the taste.
Put a small amount of olive oil in a skillet (I use a cast iron). Sprinkle the chops with a little salt and pepper. Lightly brown the chops on both sides in the skillet and then put on a plate.
In the same pan, cook 1 sliced onion, 3 cloves of minced garlic, 1 package of sliced mushrooms until tender (couple minutes).
Add 1 cup chicken stock and 3/4 cup of water to skillet. Stir and bring to a boil. Once it is boiling, return the pork chops to the skillet. Reduce heat to a simmer, cover and let simmer for 25-30 minutes. After 25-30 minutes, remove cover increase heat to med high and cook until the sauce has thickened (approx 10-15 mins).
Serve chops with sauce, mushrooms and onions on top.
They have an awesome flavor and the sauce thickens to a gravy like consistancy but is healthy!

I bake them with chopped up apples, applesauce, cinnamon and nutmeg. The applesauce keeps them moist.

Thank you for all of your suggestions. Over time I am going to give each one a try.
