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. I served them with Greek Lemon Roasted Potatoes and asparagus lightly poached in roasted garlic chicken broth. Fantastic!

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.

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.

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!

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!

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.

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!
