We added fresh cilantro, orange juice and zest to bottled barbecue sauce for convenience and terrific flavor. It's especially good drizzled over the onions.
Ingredients

cooking spray

3 spray(s), divided

barbecue sauce

6 Tbsp, Chipotle flavored

cilantro

2 Tbsp, fresh, chopped (plus more for garnish if desired)

orange zest

1 tsp

fresh orange juice

2 Tbsp

uncooked lean only pork loin

1 pound(s), four 4 oz boneless chops, 3/4-inch-thick each

uncooked vidalia onion(s)

½ medium, cut into four 1/4-inch-thick rounds

Instructions

  1. Off heat, coat grill rack or a large grill pan with cooking spray; heat grill or set pan over medium heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine barbecue sauce, cilantro and orange zest. Remove 2 tablespoons of sauce to a small bowl and stir in orange juice; set aside. Add chops to medium bowl; toss to coat with sauce.
  3. 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.
  4. Transfer pork to serving plates; separate onions into rings and scatter around pork. Drizzle each serving with 1/2 tablespoon of reserved barbecue sauce mixture; sprinkle with extra chopped cilantro. Yields 1 pork chop and 1/4 of onions per serving.
Notes
Never spray cooking spray directly into a heat source, whether a grill or a stove.
