This recipe was developed by Chef Tom Kenny of Mike Ditka’s Restaurant in Chicago. A favorite pork chop recipe for tailgating of the legendary coach of Da Bears and the New Orleans Saints and 5-time Pro Bowler. Be sure to have plenty of other tailgating goodies like Roasted Potato Dippers, Chilies Con Queso and try Grilled Honey-Glazed Cinnamon Apples for dessert.
