Servings: 4 Prep 15 mins Grill 20 mins


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 4 thin boneless center-cut pork chops (about 1 pound total)
  • 1 large tomato, cored and cut into 8 wedges
  • 1 medium-size yellow squash, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium-size zucchini, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 1 14 ounce can artichoke hearts, drained, quartered and patted dry
  • 1 tablespoon capers, drained
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 loaf Italian bread

Make It

1. Prep charcoal grill with medium-hot coals or heat gas grill to medium-high heat.

2. Using 12-inch-wide heavy-duty aluminum foil, cut 4 pieces 32 inches long; fold each piece in half to make a 16 x 12-inch rectangle. Generously coat foil pieces with nonstick cooking spray.

3. In large bowl, stir oil, rosemary, lemon juice, and 1/2 teaspoon of the pepper. Brush onto both sides of pork; toss remaining mixture with tomato, squash, zucchini, artichokes and capers.

4. Evenly place mixture on one half of each foil piece. Season pork with salt and remaining 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Top vegetables with pork.

Create a packet:

5. Fold second half of foil over pork and vegetables. Tightly seal sides and front edges, leaving space for steam to build. Place packets on grill rack. Grill 20 minutes; 5 minutes before packets are finished, slice bread and grill on both sides. Carefully open packets; transfer contents to 4 serving plates. Serve with grilled bread.
