You can cook pork chops once they have been defrosted. You cannot throw a frozen set of pork chops on the grill or in the oven when frozen and expect anything good to come from it. Take your pork chops out of the freezer when you're ready to cook them and leave them in the sink with warm water running over them to speed the process. After a few hours they should be thawed and ready to be out on the grill for a cookout or fried in a pan on the oven.

Once you have thawed your pork chops you should either marinate them before cooking, or at the very least, season them to make them more tender after cooking. You should cook them slowly whether you are grilling or using the oven, so make sure your flame or temperature is not too hot.

Resist the temptation to put any sauce on the pork chops while they are cooking. Sauces when applied too early will burn and affect the taste of the food in a very negative manner. Apply all sauces after the pork chops have been taken off the grill or out of the oven. Use a food thermometer to check the inside of the pork chops to make sure they are completely cooked as pork and other meat products can carry bacteria and if not cooked properly, can infect the person eating them with any germs they are carrying.

Plan ahead when you want to have pork chops on your menu. Reserve several hours to defrost them as well as a short time in which to marinate and season them. Cooking them slowly will help to bring out the natural flavor that you love in your food, and will kill any bacteria or germs that may be lurking in the meat.

Sure can. I have done it several times. Usually when I forgot to take out the meat before I left for work. If you plan on frying it though you must defrost it first.

Defrost first. If you do not have time to defrost first; put in the
oven @ 250 F. For about 1 hour. Take it out, season it. Turn your oven
up to 350 F. Put in the oven for 1.5 - 3 hours (according to size of
roast). Make sure roast is cooked all the way through! Take out and
cove with a tea towel until ready to cut and serve. Enjoy

The only way I found to cook frozen pork chops is to cook them in a small pressure cooker.
