Pesto-Stuffed Pork Chops

Stuffed with robust pesto flavor, these moist and tender pork chops with onions are a delicious solution for easy weeknight dinners.


  • 2 (about 6 ounces each) boneless thick-cut pork chops
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup BUITONI Refrigerated All Natural Pesto with Basil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 cup sliced onion


  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. Cut each pork chop horizontally three-fourths of the way through the meat creating a pocket, being careful to not cut all the way through. Rub pork chops with cumin, paprika and salt. Fill each pork chop with 1 tablespoon pesto; secure with wooden picks.
  3. Heat oil in medium, ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion; cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes.
  4. Add pork chops; cook for 1 minute on each side until brown.
  5. Place skillet in oven.
  6. Bale pork chops and onion for 15 to 20 minutes or until pork is cooked through.
  7. Remove wooden picks; top with remaining 3 tablespoons pesto.
