Recipe Ingredients for Pork Chops Stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

1 tablespoon olive oil, plus 1 tablespoon
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 sun-dried tomatoes, diced
10 ounce of frozen spinach, thawed and excess water squeezed out
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more for seasoning
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 cup (2 ounces) feta cheese
1/3 cup reduced-fat cream cheese
16 ounce center-cut pork chops
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1/8 cup lemon, zested
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard

Recipe Directions for Pork Chops Stuffed with Sun-Dried Tomatoes and Spinach

  1. Warm the 1 tablespoon olive oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, pepper, and thyme. Cook until combined, about 2 more minutes. Transfer the mixture to a medium bowl. Add the feta cheese and the cream cheese. Stir to combine and set aside.

  2. Use a sharp knife to cut a pocket into the thickest portion of the pork chop. Stuff each pocket with 1/4 of the spinach and sun-dried tomato mixture and close the pork around the stuffing. Season the outside of the pork with and pepper.

  3. In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, lemon zest, lemon juice, and mustard.

  4. Warm the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot add the pork. Cook until golden and cooked through, about 8-10 minutes per side. Transfer the pork to a side dish and tent with foil to keep warm. Add the chicken broth mixture to the skillet over medium-high heat. Scrape up the brown bits from the bottom of the pan as the chicken broth simmers. Reduce the broth by half to make a light sauce, about 8 minutes. Spoon some sauce over the pork before serving.
