Pork is a great alternative to chicken–it’s lean and can be prepared in many different ways.
This simple recipe is from my bestselling cookbook The Shredded Chef is one of my favorites–it requires basically no prep and because it’s baked, it has that wonderful moistness and crunchy exterior. It goes great with a side like this baked potato.
