Mediterranean Boneless Pork Chops with Summer Veggies

I love this summer dish!! It's so flavorful and easy to make, and the best part, the servings are generous! If you don't eat pork you can make this with chicken.

Talk about a delicious weeknight summer meal! These thin and lean thin pork chops are pan seared and served topped with julienned summer squash, roasted tomatoes, lemon juice, olives and Feta cheese. So much flavor and color in this dish!

If you have a spiralizer, you can use that instead of a mandolin to cut the zucchini and squash. You can also use chicken cutlets in place of the pork.

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Season the pork chops with Montreal seasoning (or any seasoned salt you like).
  • To Julienne the Zucchini and Yellow Squash: Use a mandolin fitted with a julienne blade, or slice the zucchini into 1/8-inch thick slices. Cut the slices lengthwise into 1/8-inch thick strips. (Or you can use a spiralizer)
  • Toss the tomatoes with 1/2 tbsp of the olive oil, 1/8 tsp salt, pepper, and oregano.  Place tomatoes, cut side up, on a baking sheet lightly sprayed with cooking spray; roast for 10 minutes.
  • Add sliced garlic and roast for another 5 minutes (this will prevent the garlic from burning).
  • Transfer to a large work bowl and set aside.

  • Heat a large non-stick skillet over medium-high heat, add remaining 1/2 tablespoon of olive oil and zucchini with 1/8 tsp salt and sautà until tender, about 5 minutes.

  • Working in two batches, spray the skillet with cooking spray and cook half of the the pork chops on medium-high heat for about 1 1/2 to 2 minutes on each side.  The pork chops are thin so you don't want to over cook them or they will be tough.  Set aside on a platter.
  • Remove the vegetables from the oven toss with Kalamata olives, juice of lemon and lemon rind.
  • Serve the vegetables over the pork chops and top with Feta cheese.
