Pork Chop and Feta Skillet
This is my favorite way to cook pork chops. Chops are seasoned with lemon juice, basil, parsley, and garlic, seared, and then topped with feta cheese. Delicious!

Yum! I mixed the lemon juice (1/2 cup) and seasonings together and marinated the chops for an hour rather than just dipping. I crumbled the feta and added it to the chops after I plated, and it melted just enough by the time we ate.

If you are looking for an excellent pork/feta recipe PORK CHOPS w/ FRESH TOMATO, ONION, GARLIC & FETA (from this site) is the way to go. It puts this dish to shame. The key is to use thick cut chops.
Delicious....I didn't change a thing with this recipe. Thanks for the post.
Wow! This was fantastic. I actually took all the ingredients (just one lemon tho and more olive oil than recipe asks for) and blended them in a zipblock and let the porkchops marinate in the bag for a couple of hours. Then I cooked the dinner according to the recipe and added all the ingredients all over again to the meat in the pan (less one lemon). I minced the garlic, rosemary and basil and it turned out like a pesto, then rubbed it on top of meat. My husband raved about this meal as did I! It was sooo good. I think the marinating the pork made a huge difference!
Execellent! Lots of flavor. Family enjoyed it. I didn't have enough lemon juice (only about 1/2), but didn't need an entire cup. Having the extra would make dipping easier. I will definitely make this again.
Here are my changes: did garlic powder instead of minced, doubled the herbs, combined herbs and lemon and marinated chops for about an hour, had thin cut pork chops so I cut the time down to 2-3 mins per side - once I flipped them over I added the crumbled feta and let the cheese melt while the other side was cooking to prevent over-cooking them. Then I let them sit for a about 5 mins covered. Very easy and fast and tastes amazing! I've made these before without marinating and they weren't as good. I highly recommend marinating them - makes the flavors pop! Served with long grain & wild rice w/ chopped red pepper and onion, and corn.
By far, the best pork chop I have ever eaten. This is amazing and it will probably become one of my staple foods. I used a fairly well-seasoned cast iron pan and they seared beautifully. I used the jarred minced garlic with a little bit of it's juice. Wonderful!
Delicious!!!! The chops I used were really thick, so they needed a bit more cook time. I ended up throwing the lemon juice in the pan to simmer until done...used the pan juice as a salad dressing. YUM!
Definately loved these! Then again, anything with feta is fantastic! We made the recipe as-is and it had wonderful flavor. TIP: After removing the porkchops from the skillet, mix in about a tablespoon of water and a teaspoon of lemon juice to the skillet and stir around the drippings - heat to a boil... and then pour that into some already cooked white rice. It is a GREAT side dish with all the flavors of your pork chops.
Unbelievable! I used just-picked garden-fresh basil and rosemary, only needed juice of 1/2 of a large lemon for dipping, but poured the remaining lemon into the skillet as feta (used plain) was softening. Be sure to scrape bits from skillet to top chops. Mine were about 1/2" thick and boneless so I seared them about 3 mins/side and addtional 3 mins for feta. Moist and mouthwatering. Felt like I was dining out!
These are excellent flavors that blend well together. For extra lemony taste, try adding a few shots of lemon pepper. The feta was delicious on these chops. Thank you for the recipe!
Ehh, it was okay. I love feta and the combo was pretty good with the pork chop, but I wasn't blown away. It will be one of those "if that's all you have left in the refrigerator" recipies for me.
I also had to double herbs. I am not sure how much the lemon juice added to the taste. I would note to keep the heat on medium so as not to burn the herbs.
Quick, easy and delicious. I made exactly by the recipe other than cutting back a couple of minutes on cooking time since my chops weren't really thick. I can think of all kinds of little variations that I want to try too, maybe add some diced baby port mushrooms or finely diced fresh tomatoes for garnish. Thanks for sharing.
This was great! Everybody enjoyed it a lot. We used fresh basil and plain feta and it turned out really nice. I poured the remaining lemon juice in the pan with the pork and it helped keep them moist. I only used half of the amount of lemon juice and it still seemed plenty.
this recipe had a good start, the herbs, garlic and pepper on the chop is really good. I was a bit disappointed in the cheese, it did not melt as I imagined that it would. although that may be my fault by using to much cheese. I will be trying this recipe again so it did not put me off.
I love this recipe, but when I cooked it according to the directions, it came out overcooked and the feta cheese wasn't melted. I made it a second time, but this time, once I turned over the pork chops, I went ahead and put the feta cheese on it then. It seems to take about a good 10 minutes or so for it to melt. (so, after the first flip, put on the cheese and cover)
I used the exact ingredients, then marinated my chops in the mix for about an hour. I pounded the chops thin, layed the feta cheese in the middle & rolled them up, layed them in a roaster & poured the remaining marinade over, covered & baked in the oven. So full of flavor, even my fussy non-meat eating 12 year old went back for seconds!
These were excellent! I used fresh rosemary and added minced garlic. I also marinated them for a couple of hours first. Served it with a modified version of Greek Style Potatoes on this site. Great dinner!
This was very good, I fried them in olive oil..Yum-Oh...I used boneless breakfast chops, and they were so good...Feta is always Beta!!!
For the ultimate in flavor, I highly recommend marinating the pork chops in 1/2 the lemon juice and double the herbs for one hour.
Along with the Easy Arugula Salad this was a great main dish for our "Greek Night"! Next time I won't buy the thick Pork Chops and I'll double the herb rub mixtre. Try this -- it had a great flavor
Nice blend of flavors, but cooking time needs to be cut down, otherwise the chops will come out too dry.
Followed the directions although added more spices to our liking and used fresh basil vs. dried. Moist and tasty - feta takes longer to melt so be careful not to overcook.
I wasn't a big fan of this...Fiance really liked it though. The flavors were ok but it seemed like they would be better suited for a chicken dish.
Wow! I was a bit nervous about using Feta cheese, since I'd only seen it on the shelves at the grocery store before I made this dish with it...it was an excellent surprise! This was fantastic just as it was written--minus two pork chops I guess. We had this for supper tonight, and it smelled fantastic, tasted fantastic, was just all around fantastic. But, here's the catch: I felt that there was only enough seasoning to make the two chops that I made...for four chops, I would probably double it. I might also cut back on the cook time about 2 minutes on each side. I had some fairly average thickness pork chops, and I felt that they could have cooked on a bit lower heat for just a bit less time before adding the cheese (it would probably be the same amount of time total, I guess I would just shorten the time on one side and add the cheese earlier.) Have I mentioned this dish was fabulous??!
These were amazing. Instead of feta cheese I added sundried tomatoes on top. I also added fresh basil instead of dried basil. The pork was really juicy and flavorful.
Tasteful and easy
These pork chops are awesome and so easy!! I know I'll be making this again and again. Thanks!
easy, very tender, and tasty.
Absolutely loved these! I doubled the spices but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. The basil/tomato feta cheese is wonderful on these!
I marinated the pork chops in the sauce for about an hour. Overall very tasty flavor.
WOW. I can't stand pork, and I used a really cheap piece of meat, but this looked so good I had to try some. Sauteed some onions first in some olive oil, then covered the pork in lemon juice plus a bit of soy sauce, really rubbed all the spices possible on the pork, cooked, sauteed some basil, tomato, and garlic plus the onion, topped it all on the pork plus some feta. MMMMMMM. This is a combo with the other pork/feta recipe on the site, with some alterations.
While we followed to absolute detail the recipe, my husband and I were disappointed with the lack of flavor. I would not make this again.
I have made this recipe many times now and even shared it with others. Everyone has enjoyed. It's a great way to change up boring pork chops with some really full bodied flavors. Goes great with potatoes or just a tossed green salad with vinagrette dressing!
I got this as The Daily Dish and I needed to use up some feta cheese. I really enjoyed how fresh and easy this was. I didn't have rosemary, so I used some oregano, which worked nicely. Also, I didn’t use oil, and I used a nonstick pan instead. This would probably be good on the grill, too. Thanks!
I really enjoyed this recipe. I think that next time I will buy a pork loin and slide it into medallions and proceed with the recipe. I didn't change a thing and wouldn't - it's delicious as is.
These were fabulous! Even my fussy eater of a fiance liked them! I used plain feta, McCormicks All Purpose Seasoning, basil, sage, and garlic powder. Tossed some potatoes with olive oil and the same seasonings, popped them into the oven on 450 for 15-20 minutes while I prepped the chops, browned them in olive oil about 3 minutes on each side, and finished everything off in the oven together another 10 minutes or so. I will definitely be making this again. THANKS!
This was delicious and very easy! I used fresh rosemary and basil instead of dried, which was wonderful, but I think it's the feta cheese really makes the dish. I only had two lemons (not nearly 1 cup of juice), but it was plenty. I served it with roasted potatoes, grape tomatoes, and asparagus. I would definitely make this again :)
Absolutley loved it!! All the flavours were combined beautifully. My other half very much enjoyed it. I served the chops with baby potatoes with butter and herbs and green beans. Thanks for posting this recipe!!
I am giving up on pork chops - they always come out tough. I thought this recipe might be different, and I even followed several reviewers' ideas about marinating for a few hours. Still not good. Wish I knew what I'm doing wrong!
We loved these! I placed my pork chops on a plate and let them marinate a bit in the lemon juice before putting them in the skillet. They turned out very juicy and tender. I added the feta cheese after removing the chops from the skillet and plating them. Yum!
This is just OK. Kinda dry and bland. I won't make it agian,
This was nice. The recipe just didn't blow my mind, but it was nice. I added Worcestershire sauce to the chops with the lemon juice and did a great sear (had to add butter for that and furthermore, who browns meat with raw garlic on it? It would have burned to awful bits of black bitter--I used powdered. Overall, nice, just not a repeat.
Really liked these. It was a nice change to have Greek style pork instead of chicken. I have made this a few times and I have to say the best was when I marinated the chops (as others suggested) and then barbequed them. The flavours with the grilling were deliciously enhanced.
I thought this was ok; my husband didn't care for it. Thanks for sharing.
This recipes was a hit! Everyone loved it and I will make this again.
We liked this alot. I served it with sliced potatoes and salad and apple sauce. I tried to stuff the cheese in the pork chops but I bet the taste is the same for ones taht are just covered with it. Probably would be easier. Very tasty however.
As per one of the previous reviews , I marinated the chops in lemon juice. Found it a little tart so will try making these by dipping in lemon juice only. The spice mixture is good though.
Wow. What a simple, but very delicious recipe! Thanks a lot for sharing it with us!
I love feta so this recipe was perfect for me, I doubled the spices and garlic and poured a little bit of lemon juice over top of the pork chops as they cooked. Turned out very good.
This was DELISH! Next time I will marinate the chops in spices and lemon juice, but this had a lot of flavor. I also added chopped sun dried tomatoes and sliced mushrooms. I sauteed those in the pan for the last couple minutes the chops were cooking, and they added a lot of flavor! Thanks for the recipe!!
We love this recipe! I make my own feta, basil, and sun-dried tomato mixture and I think it does make the whole recipe a little bit more flavorful. I usually serve this with a Greek or Caesar salad and some sauteed green beans.
My husband and I enjoyed these very much!
This was very easy to prepare and I didn't change anything including the cooking time. It was right on the mark. I wasn't crazy about this dish but my partner liked it alot. If you like the ingredients you should definitely give it a try. Thank you submitter.
Wow! This recipe was fantastic. It was my first attempt at making pork chops and they came out amazing. Easy recipe. Nice and juicy. Great seasoning.
Oh my goodness, this recipe is definately a keeper! The pork was so moist and tasty, and it was such an easy and quick recipe. Thanks for sharing!
I thought this was only okay. I didn't have any basil on hand, so I used Italian seasoning instead. And I definitely didn't need the entire cup of lemon juice. My boyfriend and I thought it was a nice change, but we will never make this again.
I'm not a big rosemary person so I only used a little and still the flavor was excellent. This is an easy weeknight meal. I'm not sure why it calls for 1 cup of lemon juice. I had plenty leftover. Next time I will use 1/2 cup.
I love all the indredients, but the feta overpowered the flavor from the herbs and the pork. I think it would be rather nice without the feta. Perhaps paired with a side that uses some feta, like a beet salad. The feta on the meat didn't work for us though.
We had this for supper tonight, with some pan-fried potatoes. The pork chops were very flavourful, and we all enjoyed the dish. Would probably make again. Tip: Resist the urge to put on extra feta cheese - a little is all that is needed.
A nice change, love the feta.
Pork chops are usually so dry. These came out very moist. I prepared them as instructed and put them in a large skillet and put in the oven with foil for about 1/2 hour before serving. I also added some tomatoes to the pan to give it a little more flavor. It was good. I'll make them again.
I loved this! I served with Pasta Pomodoro and it was a great meal!
OMG! My whole family loved this recipe, even my 3 daughters who must have ketchup wtih their pork chops! I followed the recipe to tee except for the feta, all I had was low fat, but I added some basil to it and it was perfect! I will definitely make again! My husband is still commenting on how good it was. Thanks for sharing!
I wanted this to be better. I will keep the idea of it, but will work on making it come together better. The herbs have nothing to stick to, so when you rub them on the meat, they cling a bit, since it's moistened by the lemon juice, but then you're instructed to sear the meat, which only seared the herbs onto my pan. There's no deglazing, so that's where they stayed. I'm going to play with the flavors and find a way to marinate the meat to get more saturation.
This recipe was just okay. I like all of the ingredients for it so I figured it would be awesome. I think this recipe would be better suited for chicken.
This was so good. I chopped up the pork into bite size bites and just threw everything into a fry pan and sauteed it, adding the feta at the end with enough time for it to melt. It was amazing.
This was a tasty and easy way to do chops. I made these three days ago only changing the dried rosemary for fresh chopped rosemary and my husband just asked me to make them for dinner again today. We had them with baked potatoes and Smothered Green beans - another recipe from this site.
My DH loves Feta cheese so I was very excited to try this recipe. He loved it! His only critique was that he thinks it would taste better with chicken.
I used fresh sweet basil and fresh rosemary. The tart feta blended wonderfully with the flavors of the herbs. I'd make this for company.
I followed the basics, but made some changes. I didn't have any rosemary on hand, and I left out the lemon juice and used plain feta. I used Italian seasoning instead of basil, since that's what I had. Put the seasoning on the chops, browned them in butter for a bit, then added chicken broth and covered the pan. Took the chops out when they were done and added garlic and a little more Italian seasoning and pepper...reduced the broth a bit and added some cornstarch and water. I added a bit of cooked spinach in the sauce and on the chops and then topped them with feta. Turned out well. Thanks for the idea!
I just made this and thought it was great! I will definitely be making it again.
This had a fabulous taste, and I didn't marinate it. In fact, I only needed to use 1/4c lemon juice. More would have been a total waste! I used fresh basil (1 Tbsp). I served it with salad and noodles w/ mushroom sauce.
Definitely a keeper! I marinated with the herbs & 1/2 lemon juice & 1/2 lime juice (all I had). Delicious!
I make these often - easy and yummy!
Dave liked a lot
Definately something I will cook again. VERY quick and VERY easy which is something I look for!!!
Awesome and so easy to make. My husband loved it. Great even with plain feta cheese.
Delicious and easy!
The spices certainly compliment the feta cheese. This will become a staple in my house. Thats saying a lot since I'm a southern gal and if its not fried we aren't sure how to handle it.
Just made this for dinner. It was great. My husband claimed it was the best pork chops he ever had. I only had 1/2 cup lemon juice on hand, but, it was enough to dip in. Otherwise, I followed the recipe exactly. Yum...
This was excellent! Wonderful flavor! It is the kind of recipe that makes you say, "Wow, that was good."
This was very tasty and flavorful. I will definitely make it again. Only next time I will allow 10-12 minutes for the Feta to melt. I expected it to look more like melted cheese than it did. Maybe that was my problem. The chops were a little dry because of it.
This was on of my husbands favorites ane he is not a big pork chop fan! I just added more seasoning!
This recipe was SOOO flavorful! I did make some small changes to the recipe, though. I marinated the chops in the lemon and spices for about an hour in the refrigerator. I also added minced garlic and oregano per another users recommendation. The feta never actually melted, but it definitely gave the pork a nice little flavorful punch. I'll definitely be making this again! It's great for a change of pace.
This was so easy and great tasting. I have to admit that I had a very similar idea to do with pork chops. I would recommend this to all my friends.
Probably one of the best recipes I've found. I made this for christmas dinner with the family and it blew everyone away. So great. Paired it with some garlic mashed potatoes and grilled green beans. Perfection!
Pretty good! Ir was definitely different. The feta cheese makes the dish...without it, the chops would have been bland! Will make this dish again.
This was a nice recipe. I will definately make it again. It's not anything I would rave over, but it's defintely worth keeping around. Thanks.
This is a favorite in our home. I cut up a pork loin instead of using chops and it makes a nice dinner. My husband especially likes this one.
These are AWESOME, don't be dismayed by those that say otherwise. I marinated my chops for 3 hours. After searing for 7 mins each side I noticed they were not at an internal temp of 145 degrees....so I cooked covered for about 5-8 mins. Then put the feta on and covered for a few more mins. I topped with parsley.
GREAT!!! My boyfriend said they were the best pork crops he ever had.
Deliciuos! I only had plain feta so used that, but can't wait to try it again with the sun-dried tomato/basil type. Everyone loved them.
This is an awesome recipe. A few simple ingredients, easy to prepare and the final result was fantastic. I didn't use a full cup of lemon juice, but just sqeezed out one lemon and as I was only doing two chops this worked well. Thanks for a great recipe.
Great recipe - higly recommended! I only used the juice of 1 lemon for 3 large chops, worked just fine and gives that really Mediterranean flavor. I served it w/cous cous, very nice match.
This was so good! The only thing I did different was to brush the lemon juice on to the chops rather than waste an entire cup of juice. I had to use RealLemon, as I had no fresh lemons, but it was still good. I also didn't have the sun dried tomatoes, but we didn't miss them. For some reason, the feta didn't melt much, but it didn't matter. This is a keeper!
