One Sheet Pan Maple Dijon Pork Chops with Brussels sprouts and sweet potatoes is a deliciously easy fall dinner that cooks in just 30 minutes.
I've got another sheet pan dinner for you today, friends. I think I'm just a little bit obsessed with making dinner on one baking sheet, but seriously, it doesn't get much easier than this! And, you can't beat the easy clean-up -- just toss out the foil and you're just about done.
The first two times I cooked dinner is a sheet pan, I used chicken. But we had been having a lot of chicken dinners lately, and the kids were practically begging for something different. So I made maple Dijon pork chops with sweet potatoes and Brussels sprouts. Not only is this easy to make, but it's also perfect for fall.
You can have pork chops whenever you want, and we even like to grill pork chops in the summer. But when you slather them with a mix of maple syrup and mustard and bake them with seasonal veggies, you've got a meal that's definitely all about fall.
This meal does take a little extra prep work, since you have to peel and slice the sweet potatoes, but you can do this part in advance and cook everything when you're ready. And don't forget that you're saving time by not washing a lot of pots and pans. And personally, I'd rather do a little extra prep work than wash dishes!
After that, the rest of the meal comes together in no time.
You just add some spices and slather on the mustard and maple syrup, and then you pop the pan in the oven. Easy peasy, right?
It took about 30 minutes for the pork chops to cook, and they were on the thick side. If yours are thinner, just keep an eye on them, and check the temperature. You definitely don't want dried out pork chops!
