  • large skillet


  • 4 pork chops, loin or center cut, bone in or boneless, 1 inch thick
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil as needed
  • 1-2 tablespoons garlic, minced
  • 2-4 teaspoons oregano, dried more or less to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced, halved
  • 2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved approximately
  • ¼ cup pitted black olives, halved optional, more or less to taste
  • 1 cup feta cheese, crumbled optional, more or less to taste


  • Wash and cut slices into the side of each pork chop with the fat and silver skin along the edge. This stops the pork chops from curling.
  • Make cuts every 1 ½ to 2 inches along that edge. The cuts should be no more than ½ an inch deep.
  • Dry pork chops with paper towels and sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
  • Heat about 2 tablespoons of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering or a drop of water flicked in it dances.
  • Cook chops until well browned on both sides but still pink in center, 3 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Transfer chops to plate and cover with foil.
  • Add remaining 2 tablespoons of oil to skillet and heat until shimmering.
  • Add zucchini and a pinch of salt and cook until tender, stirring constantly, about 5 minutes.
  • Add garlic and stir for about 30 seconds.
  • Add broth and oregano and simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Push zucchini to sides of your skillet, return your pork chops and any juices back into your skillet.
  • Cook until your pork chops are no longer pink and reach an internal temperature of 145 degrees, between 8 and 10 minutes. The sauce will also slightly thicken.
  • Transfer your cooked pork chops to a plate.
  • Add tomatoes and olives to your skillet and stir for about a minute.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Dump vegetable mixture over top of pork chops, add crumbled feta cheese on top and serve immediately. Enjoy!
