    GingerlyJ's Note:

    Smothered pork chop and chicken recipes are all over the South. This one came from the Neeley's Celebration cookbook. I think the buttermilk is what makes this my favorite. I kind of adapted the original recipe a little bit to fit my family's tastes.

      This recipe is delicious. I tasted the sauce as I added the chicken broth and stopped with a little left in a 14 oz. can because I liked the flavor as it was and also did the same with the buttermilk leaving some in the measuring cup when I felt it tasted perfect for me. I didn't have buttermilk on hand so I made my own using milk and white vinegar. Don't skimp on the onions since they cook down. I only used a few drops of hot sauce because the sauce was hot enough for me with the cayenne flour. This is a recipe that would be great to increase and make ahead for a party then heat it in a serving dish. I made red skinned potatoes as a side and the sauce was excellent over them too.
