Barbecue Pork Chops

2 servings

 

Ingredients:

2 thick cut boneless pork chops

½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese (2oz)

1 package BBQ Bacon Cheddar Whisps, crumbled and divided

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

½ teaspoon black pepper

1 tablespoon preferred vegetable oil

½ cup prepared chipotle barbecue sauce, warmed

2 cups mixed salad greens

1 tablespoon lemon juice

2 tablespoons olive oil

Chopped parsley

 

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375℉.
  2. Holding a sharp knife parallel to the cutting board, slice each pork chop lengthwise ¾ of the way through so that they open like a book.
  3. Fill each pork chop with ¼ cup shredded cheese and ¼ cup crumbled Whisps. Sprinkle pork chops with salt and pepper.
  4. Heat a grill pan over medium heat. Brush with oil. Add pork chops to pan and cook 3 minutes per side or until browned.
  5. Brush both sides of chops with ½ cup barbecue sauce.
  6. Place grill pan in oven and bake 10 minutes or until internal temperature of pork reaches 145℉.
  7. In a large bowl, toss salad greens with lemon juice, oil, and salt and pepper to taste.
  8. To serve, place pork chops on 2 plates and sprinkle with parsley. Sprinkle remaining crumbled Whisps over top. Serve with salad greens on the side.
