Pepper Stuffed Pork Chops

Yes….I’m back again with another fun recipe my Fiance and I came up with this weekend. I’m so blessed that he’s so supportive and always loves to come up with fun new things in the kitchen. I can’t wait to become his wife in December!

Pepper Stuffed Pork Chops :: 4 WW + Points per Chop

Cook / Prep Time 45-50 min

Ingredients:

2 Medium Size (thick but fat trimmed) Pork Chops

An assortment of Bell Peppers…I used the snacker mini kind that you can find in a baggie locally at Publix

2 cloves of pressed garlic

Dash of Onion Powder

Dash of Lawry’s Seasoned Salt

Dash of Pepper

2 tsp of Olive Oil

I started by chopping up 3 of the small peppers (proved to be plenty of stuffing) and mixed them with 1 of the garlic cloves, set aside. Preheat oven to 375 F.

Slice each pork chop to make a little “pocket” for your stuffings. I browned the outsides of the pork chops first in a skillet with the olive oil & seasonings, and the extra clove of garlic. I think this makes the seasonings “stick” better. (About 45 seconds on each side of a hot pan)

Lay both chops on a cookie sheet (I line mine with Aluminum Foil for easy clean-up) and then stuff each with the peppers & garlic mixture. If you don’t want to stick, maybe add some olive oil spray…but mine were easy peasy!

Let cook about 35-45 minutes keeping an eye on the bad boys to make sure they look good. The fat juices of ours melted right out making this dish even healthier!

Hope you enjoy…and cheers to pork chops & yummy peppers!
