An easy 5-ingredient Caprese Pork Chop that couldn't be easier to prepare...or eat!
Ingredients
  • 8 thick center-cut pork chops, boneless
  • 1 jar of pesto (I love the Classico brand- over by the spaghetti sauce/pasta aisle)
  • 1 pint cherry tomatoes
  • 1 ball of fresh mozzarella
  • Handful of basil
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste
Instructions
  1. Place pork chops in a bag and pour the jar of pesto over them. Season with salt and pepper. Seal the bag and move the bag around to coat all of the chops in the pesto. Allow them to marinate for four hours or overnight.
  2. Slice the cherry tomatoes in half in a small bowl. Chop or tear the basil and add them to the tomatoes, seasoning with salt and pepper. Slice the mozzarella into eight slices and set aside.
  3. Preheat your grill on medium-high heat. Place chops on the grill and cook for five minutes on each side. In the last two minutes, add a slice of mozzarella on each pork chop. Shut the grill and allow the cheese to melt.
  4. Once the pork is cooked through, remove it from the grill and allow the chops to rest for 5 minutes. Top each chop with the tomato salad. Serve.
