Why are my pork chops chewy?
If your pork chops are chewy it is most likely because they are overcooked. Pork chops are very lean and overcooking them makes them dry and chewy.
You should cook the pork chops to a temperature of 145 degrees F and then take them out of the oven to rest. This way they’ll be juicy and tender.
