4 boneless pork chops

1/4 cup brown sugar

2 tsp dried basil

1/2 tsp salt

1/2 tsp mild chili powder

1 tbsp canola oil

1/2 cup Caesar dressing

1/4 cup sliced black olives, drained

1/4 cup onions, diced

1/4 cup chicken broth

2 tbsp green onions, diced

1 tbsp minced garlic

2 cups penne pasta


  • Place pork chops in a zip lock bag, and add brown sugar, 1-1/2 tsp dried basil, salt, chili powder, 1 tbsp canola oil. Seal bag and press on bag with fingers to distribute ingredients evenly over pork chops.
  • Start pot of water for pasta, and salt well. Once water gets to a boil place pasta in pot and cook until el dente. Drain pasta and return the empty sauce pan to the stove.
  • Add the diced onions, minced garlic, and chicken broth to the sauce pan for 2-3 minutes on medium-high heat. Add Caesar dressing, olives, and green onions. Cook for an additional 2 minutes. Lastly, add the penne pasta back to the pot, mix well, and cook on low until pork chops are done.
  • Spray a large skillet with non-stick cooking spray and cook pork chops over medium heat 5-8 minutes on each side or until browned and internal temperature reads 160F. Serve the pork chops with the Caesar penne pasta. Enjoy!
