I really hope you liked my recent post, Better Than Takeout! 12 Healthy Sheet Pan Dinners for Busy Weeknights, because I’ve got another incredibly quick and easy sheet pan dinner recipe that I think you’re going to love.

These Sheet Pan Pork Chops were inspired by this month’s Recipe ReDux theme…

Sheet Pan Meals

We love throwing ingredients together on a sheet pan and roasting for a simple sheet pan dinner. They make busy weeknights a bit more manageable. (And clean-up isn’t bad either!) Show us your healthy take on a sheet pan meal.

I apologize for the photos in advance…

I prepped these sheet pan park chops up last night in less than 15 minutes (which includes photo taking time!), but I started a wee bit late, and the sun had already set by the time I pulled them out of the oven.

I tried to “brighten” them up with a little help from my i phone filters, but….

Anyhoo, they are insanely delicious, and Mr. Spicy, Big Tex, and I gobbled them right up.

Quick side note, if you’re not into pork chops, you could easily make these with chicken, salmon, or even “cauliflower steaks” for a vegan version. I’m pretty sure they key to making these sheet pan pork chops so delicious, is the 2-ingredient maple Dijon sauce, plus the roasted sweet onions and apples~I could eat them on their own, they’re so delicious!

Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
Servings: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 apples sliced 
  • 1 small sweet onion or 1/2 large onion, sliced
  • 1/2 pound green beans end trimmed
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt plus additional to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 boneless pork chops
  • 1 tablespoon chopped sage plus additional sage leaves for garnish

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and line a large sheet pan with parchment paper or aluminum foil.
  • Use a whisk or fork to combine maple syrup and Dijon mustard together in a small bowl, and set aside.
  • Slice apples and onions, and trim ends off green beans, then lay them out on the sheet pan. Pour olive oil on top, and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Use clean hand to toss apples, onion, and green beans together, then spread them out on the pan in a single layer.
  • Place pork chops on sheet pan with apples and veggies. Brush maple Dijon glaze on top of pork chops, then turn them over, and brush the other sides. Sprinkle ground black pepper on top of pork chops if desired.
  • Place sheet pan in oven, and bake for 25 minutes, or longer if needed.  
  • Chop sage while pork chops are cooking, and set aside.
  • Check pork chops with a meat thermometer to see if done {the internal temperature should be 145 degrees F}. If done, remove pan from oven, and allow pork 3 minutes to “rest” before serving.
  • Serve 1 pork chop with 1/4 of the apples, onions, green beans, and a sprinkle of fresh chopped sage per plate. Enjoy!

Notes

Easy substitutions for different diets:
  1. Low FODMAP-Omit onions & apples. Sub w/ any combo of low FODMAP veggies such as potatoes, sweet potatoes, broccoli, carrots, Brussels sprouts, bell peppers, eggplant, fennel, parsnips, or zucchini.
  2. Vegetarian or Vegan-Omit pork chops and substitute with “cauliflower steaks”, tofu, or chickpeas.
Serving Suggestions:
  1. We enjoyed this w/ polenta with goat cheese, but you could serve the sheet pan pork chops with mashed potatoes, rice, or quinoa.
  2. Fo a lower carb version, serve with cauliflower rice, or a green salad.

  1. I’m trying to stick to a low to no sugar diet. Is there anything you can substitute for the maple syrup to decrease the sugar content? Thanks for this recipe..this looks yummy! Going to try it this week!

    1. Hi Blair! Sorry for the late reply. A couple of options: More than half of the “sugar” comes from natural fruit sugar in the apples, but if you omit the maple syrup, you’ll cut back on ~8 grams of sugar per serving, and it will still have a sweet taste from the apples and onions. You may want to add a little water or chicken broth in place of the maple syrup for additional liquid. Option 2 would be to substitute it with a more natural liquid artificial sweetener, like liquid stevia or Yacon syrup (caution with too much which may cause stomach upset), although I haven’t tried it this way to let you know what it tastes like. Personally, I would go with option 1, but I’d love to hear how you adapt the recipe. Cheers!

    1. Hi Elaine! Oh, my goodness. I don’t know what to say, other than, OOPS! I totally forgot to include all the directions before posting. Thank you SO much for letting me know!!! I just updated the recipe~I’d love to hear how they turn out if you make them tonight. Have a wonderful weekend!
