Pork Chops Stuffed w/Sun Dried Tomatoes & SpinachSubmitted by: FOOFETTE
2 tbsp. olive oil, divided
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 sun dried tomatoes, diced (bagged ready-to-eat type, not packed in oil)
1 - 10oz. box of frozen spinach, thawed & excess water squeezed out
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
1/4 c. (2 oz.) Chavrie goats milk cheese
1/3 c. fat free cream cheese
4 - 4oz. center-cut boneless pork chops
1 1/2 c. low sodium chicken broth
1/2 lemon, zested
2 tbsp. lemon juice
2 tsp. Dijon mustard
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 salt and pepper.
In a small bowl combine the chicken broth, lemon zest, lemon juice and mustard. Set aside to use later.
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 4 minutes per side. Transfer the pork to a dish and tent with foil to keep warm. Add the chicken broth mixture to the skillet over midium-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.
