I'm always looking for ways to make dinner easier without sacrificing quality.  I feel like that's the goal of each and every one of us really.  So the other day when I was about to make dinner I had a thought.  "If I'm going to roast these vegetables, why couldn't I just put EVERYTHING on the sheet pan?"  I gave it a try, and let me tell you, sheet pan meals are my life right now!  You will be seeing more of these in the future, but let's start with my Easy Pork Chop Sheet Pan Recipe.

So simple, and the best part...You can do all the prep work the night before!  I can't wait to share it with you so...

Let's get started!

Easy Pork Chop Sheet Pan Meal:
*Prep Time: 10 min  *Cook Time: 30 min  *Difficulty:  Easy  *Servings:  4

Ingredients:

The ingredients needed for the Easy Pork Chop Sheet Pan Meal Recipe.

  • 4 Boneless Center Cut Pork Chops
  • 1 lb. Broccoli, cut into florets 
  • 2 large Sweet Potatoes, peeled and diced
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 tsp. Kosher Salt
  • 1 tsp. Lemon Pepper Seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp. Dried Thyme
To begin you will need to heat the oven to 425 degrees.  


The pork chops being patted dry.

Next pat the pork chops dry with some paper towels.
This will make sure that the pork chops roast and not steam.  This way you will get that gorgeous brown color.

The pork chops being seasoned with salt and lemon pepper seasoning.

Now season both sides of the pork chops with the salt and lemon pepper seasoning and place them at one end of the baking sheet.


I guess I should let you know what sheet pan I use for this recipe.  Of course any "cookie sheet" would do, but I really like the Nordic Ware Aluminum Commercial Baker's Half Sheet. It's just the right size for larger projects like this, and I love how it cooks everything so evenly.

Once you have prepped the broccoli and sweet potatoes place them into a large mixing bowl.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil being added to the bowl of prepped broccoli and sweet potatoes.

Pour a little extra virgin olive oil over them.

Salt being added to the bowl of prepped broccoli and sweet potatoes.

Then season with salt,

Lemon pepper seasoning being added to the bowl of prepped broccoli and sweet potatoes.

Lemon pepper seasoning,

Thyme being added to the bowl of prepped broccoli and sweet potatoes

And dried thyme.

The prepped broccoli and sweet potatoes being tossed with the oil and seasonings.

Toss everything together so that all of the vegetables are coated with the oil and seasonings.

The pork chops and vegetables placed on the sheet pan.

Place the broccoli and sweet potatoes on the other half of the baking sheet.

Now place the baking sheet into the preheat 425 degree oven and cook for 30 minutes.
About half way through I actually flipped the pork chops for growing to occur on both sides.

After 30 minutes remove from the oven, and dinner is ready!

I wish you could smell how delicious this is. That pork chop was beautifully cooked.  Browned on the outside, but moist and juicy on the inside.  And the vegetables...I'm not lying when I say that roasted broccoli is my FAVORITE way to eat broccoli these days.  Not that it needs it, but if you wanted to add something to this meal, it pair nicely with some brown rice.  This Easy Pork Chop Sheet Pan Recipe is perfect for any weeknight meal, and I know you are going to love it.  It's so easy to prep everything the night before and just throw it in the oven when you get home from work.  So don't fret about what's for dinner.  Give this Easy Pork Chop Sheet Pan Meal Recipe and try tonight.  And if you like this recipe, I know you are going to love my Roasted Chicken with Asparagus and Sweet Potatoes  or my Ginger Sesame Grilled Chicken Salad.

And as always....
