Oven Baked One Pan Pork Chop Dinner – 25 minutes – Gluten Free
Oven Baked One Pan Pork Chop Dinner is…..
…….a super easy, super good way to go for a busy weeknight. Everything will be on the table in 25 minutes. And, you could be doing something else while it’s all in the oven.
You can push and pull on the veggie choices but the carrots and potatoes take just about as long in the oven as the pork chops. So, it all is ready to go on the plates at once.
Ok, lets get going!
Set the oven at 450°. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil and spray or wipe it with olive oil. Or, use a non stick pan but still spray or wipe with the oil.
About the potatoes. If you want to serve them whole, like baked potatoes, give them a head start for a few minutes in the microwave while you prep the carrots and pork chops.
If you want to serve them cut up just chop them into about one inch cubes and spread them out on the baking pan. Then drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Peel and cut up the carrots into large french fry shapes or just use “baby carrots”. Spread them out on the pan and sprinkle with salt, pepper and brown sugar.
Cut the onion into strips. Salt, pepper and garlic powder both sides of the pork chops. Lay them out on the baking pan and spread the onion strips out on top of them.
You could substitute a lot of different things for the onion strips i.e. roasted red peppers, sun dried tomatoes, slices of fresh tomatoes, lemon slices or zest, chopped mint leaves and on and on. Your the boss so you do it the way that YOU want to.
Into the oven for about fifteen minutes. When the pork chops are firm or read 145° on an instant read meat thermometer and the veggies are easy to poke with a table fork your Oven Baked One Pan Pork Chop Dinner is ready to serve.
So,,,,,what did you do with your “free” time while your Oven Baked One Pan Pork Chop Dinner was in the oven?
Never mind, not my business.
