This recipe is very unclear on measurements. I seasoned the chop but I didn’t French then enough to have marinade left in the bowl. What’s to drench them in beside mom juice and hot sauce. I don’t want either over powering in taste.

If there isn't any marinade left, you should not add additional sauce or lemon juice Mark, you can however fry the potatoes in the olive oil you friend the pork chops in, it will still contain a lot of flavor.
