Chicken Fried Pork Chops

The hubby loves chicken fried steak, but I don't think we have ever tried chicken fried pork before, so I thought it was about time to give it a try.

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground paprika
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
8 ounces crackers, crushed
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
4 thick pork chops
salt and pepper to taste
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil for frying
In a shallow bowl, mix 1 1/2 cup of flour, paprika, and garlic powder. In a second shallow bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk until thoroughly blended. In a third bowl, combine the crushed cracker crumbs, and 1/2 cup of flour.
With a fork, prick the pork chops thoroughly to tenderize the meat. Season the chops with salt and pepper.
Gently press the pork chops into the flour to coat, and shake off the excess flour. Dip into the beaten egg mixture, then press each chop into the cracker crumb mixture. Gently toss between your hands so any crumbs that haven't stuck can fall away
Heat the oil in a large, deep skillet over medium heat, and gently place the pork chops into the hot oil. Fry the chops until the meat is no longer pink in the center and the crust is crisp and golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chops from the pan, and drain the excess oil on paper towels.
