Grilled Pork Chops with Peach Basil Chutney

Jump to Recipe

This Grilled Pork Chops with Peach Basil Chutney is a delightful recipe that brings together the juicy tenderness of perfectly grilled pork chops with the sweet and tangy flavors of fresh peach basil chutney. This dish is an excellent choice for a family dinner, offering a satisfying and flavorful meal that everyone will enjoy. 

For this recipe, use center-cut pork chops, which are known for their tenderness. When grilled, these chops develop a delicious, slightly charred exterior while remaining succulent inside.   

The peach basil chutney adds a vibrant, sweet, tangy contrast to the savory pork chops. Ripe peaches are peeled and halved, then cooked with bourbon (or another whiskey) and brown sugar, creating a rich and flavorful base. The bourbon adds depth and a subtle smokiness, while the brown sugar enhances the peaches' natural sweetness. A touch of salt and black pepper balances out the sweetness.  

Fresh lemon juice adds a nice zest to the chutney, providing a refreshing tang. Finely chopped fresh basil introduces a hint of herbal freshness that complements the sweetness of the peaches and the savory pork. The combination of these ingredients results in a complex chutney, elevating the dish to new levels. 

The blend of juicy, tender pork chops with the vibrant, flavorful chutney makes this recipe a standout for any family dinner. It's easy to prepare yet impressive enough to make any meal special. The chutney can be made beforehand, allowing you to focus on grilling the pork chops. Serve the pork chops topped with the peach basil chutney and enjoy a dish sure to please the whole family. 


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Coat grill with cooking spray. Place peaches cut side down and cook until lightly charred, approximately 2 minutes per side. Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly, coarsely chop.
  3. In a small pot over medium heat, add the peaches, bourbon, brown sugar, ½ teaspoon salt, ½ teaspoon pepper and lemon juice. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer until thickened, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat, stir in basil.
  4. Meanwhile, sprinkle pork chops with remaining salt and pepper. Grill until internal temperature reaches 145°, approximately 6-7 minutes per side. Top with peach chutney. Enjoy!
