Total Time

Prep/Total Time: 25 min.

Topped with onions and a sweet, tangy sauce that is sure to wow dinner guests, these chops are moist and tender. “I often get requests for the recipe after they taste it,” says Robyn Herz of Overland Park, Kansas.


  • 6 boneless pork loin chops (4 ounces each)
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 cup chili sauce
  • 2/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 packages (8.8 ounces each) ready-to-serve long grain rice


  1. Place pork chops in an 11x7-in. microwave-safe dish coated with cooking spray; top with onion. Combine the chili sauce, brown sugar and lemon juice; pour over chops. Cover and microwave on high for 15 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160°.
  2. Meanwhile, cook rice according to package directions. Serve with pork chops.

    I cooked these in the oven at 350 for 1 hour, instead of using the microwave. Pork was very tender and it had a tasty sweet and sour sauce to serve over rice!

    This is a go-to quick recipe for me. Restaurant-quality food with quick microwave preparation -- what's not to like? We like this with mashed potatoes instead of rice sometimes. Add a salad or veggie and your meal is ready!
