This is a tried and true recipe for pork chops, but it works great using chicken too. With chicken, cooking time is more like 40 minutes for thick breasts.

The flavor was good but I give it three stars because 1 hour is too long to cook most pork chops and they gave off a lot of liquid and made the good tasting sauce too thin and runny. I might try searing the porkchops first and browning them before baking them with the sauce next time. Read More

This recipe was great. I modified it a little but it turned out amazingly well. I rubbed the pork chops with garlic powder onion powder and pepper then browned them. I also added 1 teaspoon lemon juice and 1 teaspoon corn starch to the ketchup mixture. I put the pork chops in the oven for 30 minutes at 375 degrees. They were moist and the sauce turned out to be the perfect thickness. Read More

This is pretty tasty and very easy to make with just a few readily available items! I also recommend covering chops in flour and some seasonings (salt pepper garlic powder..whatever you like) and browning then putting in oven. Also when you are mixing the ketchup/soda mixture..let it sit in the bowl after mixing for a few minutes it thickens and makes a thicker overall sauce when cooked. Read More

This recipe was absolutely wonderful! I was skeptical b/c of the simplistic ingredients but it was wonderful. I did use a few of the suggestions from other reviewers. I floured and fried up the chops before putting them in the sauce to thicken the sauce it also reduced the cooking time to about 40 minutes. I also used 1/2 ketchup and 1/2 barbecue sauce. I added onions and 2 cloves of garlic minced up. This was great my husband and kid's loved it! I will definitely be making this soon:) Thanks for such a great recipe! Read More

I can't believe this was so good! I would normally have passed this up but after reading the reviews I just had to try it. I used 3 tablespoons of brown sugar and equal amounts of the Coke and ketchup (a little more than a cup)and added a few slices of onion on top of the chops. I took the chops out at the end and thickened the sauce with some cornstarch and water. It was not too ketchupy for us and tasted great over rice. This was so quick to throw together and then fix the side dishes while it cooked. How simple! Thanks for sharing this recipe - I will definitely make it again...and again.. Read More

Don't worry about those reviews who said this wasn't good. It was awsome. I cooked this for my hubby his friend and myself and we all thought it was great. I spiced it up with garlic powder seasoning salt pepper lemon juice (will ommit next time) a dash of tabasco and 2 tbsp of bbq sauce. I served it up with roasted potatoes (put in the oven at the same time and ready at the same time) and peas and corn. I'll definately make this again. I marinated mine for 2 hours first not sure if it made a difference or not. TRY THIS Read More

I covered my baking pan and as a consequence had a lot of sauce that was very thin. Will definately make this again but will bake without a cover to thicken the sauce up. Hubby says this is actually a seven star recipe. I did add sliced onions and some garlic powder. Read More

I was hesitant about this because my husband HATES ketchup... but I LOVE it! So I made it with half ketchup and half barbeque sauce and I used Coke with Lime... which i found was really good because through the sweetness you could taste the lime! Needless to say there was NO leftovers!!! Read More

Very good! I followed a few of the tips of other reviewers, using half ketchup, half BBQ sauce, and I also added in some tabasco and garlic powder. Before putting them in the oven, I dredged the chops in lightly seasoned flour and fried them in olive oil to get a little caramelization and so the flour could thicken the sauce a little. They were very good. I used the extra sauce with added oregano on some pasta and served it as a side dish. Read More
