Pork Tenders

Pork Tenders. Here’s a kid friendly meal that the grown ups will love too. If you have little ones, they love using those little hands to eat with rather than using a fork. Kids also love all things nugget and tenders form. Fried pork chops in tender form are perfect dipped in homemade old fashioned bbq sauce! Plus you get more crust and everyone loves the crust, right!
