You only need 6 simple ingredients to make this baked pork chops and potatoes sheet pan dinner. I threw some broccoli florets in, but those are optional.
- Olive oil
- Pork chops -- I used bone in pork loin chops
- Dried Ranch seasoning
- Garlic powder
- Smoked paprika -- adds smokey flavor, but regular paprika works
- Baby potatoes
- Salt and black pepper-- to taste
I used bone-in chops here so that they wouldn't dry out by the time the potatoes are done. We like our potatoes on the crispy side.
How to Make Baked Pork Chops and Potatoes
First, line a sheet pan with foil for easier clean-up. You can also skip the foil or use parchment paper if you want.
Then, place pork chops and cut baby potatoes on the sheet pan, keeping them in a single layer.
Drizzle a little olive oil over the chops and potatoes, and toss to make sure they're evenly coated.
Next, season the chops and potatoes with the dried ranch dressing. Sprinkle some garlic powder and a little bit of smoked paprika over everything, as well.
You can add salt and pepper if you want.
Since the ranch powder has quite a bit of sodium, I usually let people add salt and pepper later.
Bake the pork chops and potatoes for 25 minutes or until they are at least 145 degrees internally and the potatoes are fork tender.
We prefer our pork chops done more, so this is the perfect timing for us.
Keep in mind that oven temperatures vary. You might want to check for doneness at 20 minutes if your chops are thin or if you want the internal temperature closer to 145 degrees.
If you want to add broccoli, toss some cut broccoli florets on the sheet pan for the last 5 minutes or so. We like broccoli just tender crisp, but if you want softer broccoli, you might want to add some after 15 minutes.
For added flavor, try sprinkling on some grated Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. If you want to add some color to the pork chops, broil them for a minute or so at the end.
I also recommend letting the pork chops rest for about 5 minutes before serving. This keeps them nice and juicy!
There are a few simple ways to customize these baked ranch pork chops to your liking!
If you want, leave the ranch dressing powder out, substituting for another seasoning blend. Onion soup mix is a great option. Or, try fresh herbs, especially fresh parsley, Italian seasoning, onion powder, or dijon mustard.
For a little sweetness, sprinkle brown sugar over the chops and potatoes.
Instead of baby potatoes, use your favorite vegetables for this sheet pan dinner. Use a different type of potato, such as red potatoes, or broccoli, carrots, or green beans.
You can also make pork chops and potatoes in an air fryer -- I would recommend using an oven type air fryer for this.
How to Store
Store any leftover pork chops in the refrigerator, where they'll keep for 3 to 4 days.
For longer storage, freeze the chops in a freezer safe container.
Reheat pork chops in the microwave or oven. Or, reheat them in the air fryer.
