Need an easy summer BBQ meal that’s fast to prepare and won’t weigh you down? You have to try these delicious grilled butter chicken pork chops and potatoes! So good and so fast to make! It’s perfect for those nights when I need to have dinner on the table fast, like soccer night! This year marks my daughter’s third soccer season. She loves the game, the friends, and of course the popsicles at the end of each practice! I love to sit down and watch her play while chatting with other parents! It is a great social activity for both of me. It is also relaxing: I get to sit down for one hour straight, doing nothing! Talk about a treat!!

However, this comes with a challenge: I have to get my daughter to the field at 6 pm twice a week! Since she will be burning energy, I must provide her with a balanced meal that will keep her going without weighing her down. Proteins and vegetables fulfill these requirements.  Since I don’t feel like turning on the oven during the summer, I usually go with grilled meat and vegetables. They are easy to prepare! And as a Patak’s Canada ambassador, I always mix a little India in my cooking!

The Patak’s pastes and sauces are perfect to marinate the meat. They provide that much-needed kick! For this month’s challenge, I decided to go with grilled butter chicken mini pork chops and grilled potatoes. Why mini pork chops? Because they are enough to fill my daughter’s belly without making her feel sluggish and so quick to grill! Besides, my butcher has the best pieces you can find! They are so juicy! I sometimes use the rest in sandwiches (similar to a steak sandwich, mouthwatering). Now let’s see how you can prepare this easy summer bbq meal!

Grilled Butter Chicken Pork Chops and Potatoes

Ingredients

summer-bbq-reqipe-pork-chops-potatoes

  • 4 pieces of mini pork chops (the number depends on your family size)
  • 2 cups of mini potatoes. You can go with regular ones, but I find these perfect for the BBQ: Small and you don’t need to peel them! They are a bit more expensive, but they are totally worth it!

Ingredients for the Marinade

(The following quantities will depend on the portions of meat you have. The trick is to use olive oil in larger quantity, then Patak’s Canada paste, then lemon juice).

  • 1/3 cup of olive oil
  • 2 TBSP  of Patak’s Canada Butter Chicken Curry Paste
  • 1 TBSP of lemon juice
  • salt and pepper to taste.

Make this easy summer BBQ recipe:

In a medium bowl, mix the marinade ingredients.

Use 3/4 of the marinade to marinate the meat.  Make sure to coat well. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 4 hours.

Store the rest of the marinade in the fridge. We will use it to coat the potatoes.

Once ready to grill, fire up the BBQ and grill your meat.

Coat the potatoes with the marinade. Add olive oil if needed and grill in the BBQ. I don’t put them directly on the grill. I use a vegetable dish suitable for the BBQ. It costs around $15 and is totally worth it. Let the potatoes grill for about 25 minutes.

You have to make sure that potatoes are almost ready before adding your meat. Since we are grilling mini pork chops, it takes few minutes to grill! You want them juicy not dry!

Voilà! As easy as that! What can I tell you? I made a huge mistake: I should have doubled the portions because the kids were fighting over the meal! They barely left me a bite to test try! It was juicy, well seasoned and simply delicious. For those who are concerned being spicy, it is not spicy at all. It is just well seasoned. I even coated some of my meat with some Pataks’ Canada curry paste! And the potatoes were mouthwatering too!

While you have your grill out, whip up these delicious grilled veggies to go along with your meal! They make a great appetizer for all those summer parties too!
