Pork wrapped in pork? Sign me up for that! 😉

These Bacon Wrapped Pork Chops have quickly become a favorite in our house. The tender pork chops are surrounded by crispy bacon and it’s all brushed with sweet (sugar free) BBQ sauce. Hard to go wrong with those flavors!

We just shared our recipe for Lemon Pepper Pork Chops last week, but here we are again with another keto pork chop recipe. Hopefully it’s not pork chop overload for you – we just love how versatile and easy they are.

We make pork chops at least once a week in our house. How about you?

Of course, we also love food that’s wrapped in bacon, like our bacon wrapped pork tenderloin!

Ingredients for bacon wrapped pork chops.

Pork Chops – You’ll need four boneless pork chops, about 1/2 – 3/4″ thick.

Seasoning – The seasoning is a mix of garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, salt, and pepper. You can omit the salt if you don’t like it too salty, which may also depend on the bacon that you are using.

Bacon You’re going to want to use a thin sliced cut of bacon so that it cooks up nice and crisp.

BBQ Sauce – You can use any sugar free BBQ sauce that you prefer or you can make a homemade BBQ sauce. Some popular store bought options: 

Why We Love This Recipe:
  • Juicy pork chops, wrapped in bacon. Enough said. 😉
  • The BBQ sauce adds a nice smoky, sweet flavor or tangy, spicy flavor, depending on what type of sauce you choose.
  • These are ready in about 25 minutes!
  • The whole family loves this one – there’s nothing screaming ‘low carb’ so you’ll get no complaints!
Our Favorite Meat Thermometer

meat thermometer. I love using this meat thermometer for making sure the meat is fully cooked! Easy for beginners & absolutely worth the low cost. Just stick it in the thickest part of the meat to check for doneness. This thermometer is also magnetic so it’s easy to store right on the side of the fridge or oven for easy access! Get it on Amazon.

How To Bake Pork Chops:

Collage showing how to make bacon wrapped pork chops.

  • Prepare – To get started you’ll preheat your oven to 400 degrees and place a wire rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Pat your pork chops dry and then stir together the seasoning blend.
  • Seasoning – Rub that seasoning over both sides of the pork chops to coat them.
  • Bacon – When you’ve seasoned the boneless pork chops you can start wrapping them in the bacon. Use 2 slices, being careful not to overlap too much or it won’t cook or crisp up as evenly. Thin sliced bacon is going to work best for this!
  • Bake & Baste – Place your bacon wrapped pork chops on the wire rack and bake them for about 16 to 18 minutes, or until they’ve reached a safe temp of 145 degrees. I’ve linked to my favorite meat thermometer above! Brush them with BBQ sauce and pop them under the broiler for a minute or two to caramelize the sauce. 
  • Serve – When the BBQ bacon pork chops are finished you can let them rest for 5 minutes before serving. We like to garnish ours with some parsley. Try serving these chops with some charred green beans or maybe some loaded broccoli!
Helpful Tip!

Using a thick sliced bacon will make for a chewy, unpleasant texture. Use a thinner cut of bacon for the best results.

    Cant his be cooked in the air fryer? if so how long and what temperature?

    1. Karly Campbell

      Hi Robyn! Yes, I’m sure you could cook this in the air fryer, but I haven’t tested it so I can’t give specifics. I’d guess 380 for around 10 minutes. You might need to increase the heat for a minute or 2 to crisp up the bacon at the end.
