Broiled Pork Chops With Sun-Dried Tomato & Chipotle Pesto
- To prepare Sun Dried Tomato & Chipotle Pesto: Place all the ingredients in a food processor and pulse until finely chopped and pasty.
- Position an oven rack 6 inches from the broiler element and heat the broiler to high. Set the pork chops on a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet or broiler pan. Season both sides of the pork chops with the salt and a few grinds black pepper and then cover both sides of the pork with the pesto; it should completely cover the pork. Let it sit for 10 minutes.
- Broil until the pesto darkens and any exposed parts of the pork chops become brown, about 4 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until the pork becomes firm to the touch and registers 145 degrees F on an instant-read thermometer, another 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer the chops to serving plates. If any pesto remains on the pan, scrape it up and top the chops with it.
