    Grill the Meal

    Flip, and top with mozzarella. Cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes.

Place a medium non-stick pan over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Place pork chops in hot pan and cook until golden brown and chops reach a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 5-7 minutes per side. Remove from pan and wipe pan clean. Return pan to medium heat and add marinara. Stir until heated through, 1-2 minutes Follow same plating instructions, topping vegetables with marinara before other garnishes.
