Default Stuffed Pork Chops (or pork loin or chicken breasts)

I made this one up myself! It feels indulgent without actually being bad at all, is easy and fast, at least for prep time, and gets the BF stamp of approval.

Stuffed Pork Chops
Butterflied, boneless center cut pork chops. Or thick pork chops, sliced down one side to make a pocket/sort of butterfly them yourself.
A few Tbsp of store bought or homemade pesto.
About 1/2 oz of crumbled feta cheese per pork chop. (I'm sure you could sub other cheeses.)
A tsp or 2 of oil, salt, and pepper.

Spread or stuff about 1 T pesto in the center of each pork chop, add the feta cheese, and close the chops if using the butterflied ones. I also lightly coat the outside of each chop with oil. I use EVOO in my Misto to just give each side a quick spritz, give the outside a sprinkle of salt and pepper, and sometimes will add a sprinkle of other seasonings like garlic powder or rosemary. Bake at 350 for about 35 minutes, depending on the thickness of the chops. This could easily be adapted for pork loin or used to stuff chicken, too.
