Chili Barbecue Chops

In her West Monroe, Louisiana kitchen, Tonya Fitzgerald jazzes up store-bought Italian salad dressing with barbecue sauce and chili powder to make the easy marinade for these pork chops. They're simmered on the stove-top for just a few minutes, so they're on the table in no time.
  • Total Time

  • Makes
    4 servings


  • 1/2 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 4 bone-in pork chops (3/4 inch thick and 7 ounces each)


  • In a small bowl, combine the salad dressing, barbecue sauce and chili powder. Pour 1/2 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag; add the pork chops. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for at least 1 hour. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

    I thought the ingredients in this recipe make for some interesting eats. The sauce was really delicious. With that said, I used boneless pork chops and decided to bake instead of fry. I try not to fry foods very often for health reasons. My problem was the chops were like shoe leather. I do place the blame on myself,because I think I overcooked them and it made them tough. Being fair in rating this recipe, I give it 5 stars because the taste was perfect. I think this sauce would go great on chicken.

    This was very easy and very good. I used boneless chops instead. Would probably be a little tastier with the bone-in chops but it was still yummy. I would make this recipe again because I always have these ingredients on hand and the sauce was delicious.
