Orange-Chipotle BBQ Pork Chops with Grilled Onions

Serves 4
Points 5 per serving


  • 3 sprays cooking spray
  • 9 Tbsp chipotle barbeque sauce
  • 2 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, chopped, plus more for garnish
  • zest of one orange
  • 3 Tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 pound lean pork loin (four 4 oz boneless chops, 3/4 inch thick)
  • Medium Vidalia (or other sweet onion) cut into 1/4 inch thick rounds


Off heat, coat grill rack or a large grill pan with cooking spray; heat grill or set pan over medium heat.

In a medium bowl, combine barbecue sauce, cilantro and orange zest. Remove 5 tablespoons of sauce to a small bowl and stir in orange juice; set aside. Add chops to medium bowl; toss to coat with sauce.

Coat onions with cooking spray. Add onions and pork to grill or grill pan. Grill over medium-high heat, turning once or as needed, until onions are lightly charred and tender and pork is just cooked through, about 8 to 10 minutes.

Transfer pork to serving plates; separate onions into rings and scatter around pork. Drizzle each serving with 2 tablespoons of reserved barbecue sauce mixture; sprinkle with extra chopped cilantro.
