A Juicy, Flavorful Oven-Baked Delight

Gone are the days of dry, flavorless pork chops. We’re here to show you that cooking juicy, flavorful chops in the oven is easier than you think. Our honey mustard pork chops are made with real-food ingredients that deliver bold flavors and great nutrition.

The secret to our success? It’s all in the sauce! Our sheet pan pork chops are coated in a savory spice rub and then baked to perfection at the right temperature for the right amount of time. But we don’t stop there. We generously slather on a tangy, homemade honey mustard sauce that seals in the moisture and enhances the flavor. Paired with seasoned veggies and potatoes, this is a well-rounded meal that requires minimal prep and clean-up.

The Magic Combination of Ingredients

Let’s talk about the ingredients that make our Sheet Pan Pork Chops with Honey Mustard Sauce so special. No need for store-bought breading or fancy ingredients. Here’s what you’ll need:

For the Pork Chops:

  • Boneless pork chops – approximately 4 ounces each and ¾- to 1-inch thick. You can also use bone-in pork chops if preferred.
  • Brown sugar
  • Dried herbs and spices – think smoked paprika, dried thyme, garlic powder, onion powder, and ground sage.
  • Olive oil – 2 teaspoons for tossing the potatoes and 1 teaspoon to form the spice rub. Avocado oil works too.
  • Small new potatoes – these retain their shape well and have a slightly sweet and buttery taste. Red potatoes or cubed Russet potatoes are also suitable options.
  • Fresh green beans – approximately 12 ounces, trimmed. Broccoli florets or asparagus can be substituted.
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Optional garnish – chopped fresh parsley

  • Honey – maple syrup can be used as a substitute.
  • Coconut aminos – a savory condiment that adds depth of flavor. Read more about it in the full recipe.
  • Garlic powder
  • Salt and black pepper

How to Bring It All Together

Creating this delectable sheet pan pork chops dinner requires just two dishes. Here’s a streamlined approach to prep:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400°F and mist a large sheet pan with cooking spray.
  2. Toss the potatoes with oil and the seasoning rub, arranging them cut-side down on the baking sheet. Bake until they begin to brown and soften.
  3. Pat the pork chops dry, then rub the remaining spice blend on top, covering them entirely. Trim the ends off the green beans and toss them with oil and a pinch of salt.
  4. Arrange the pork chops and green beans on the sheet pan with the potatoes, and bake until the pork chops are fully cooked.
  5. Whisk together the ingredients for the honey mustard sauce.
  6. Garnish your dinner with chopped parsley, and serve warm with the honey mustard sauce drizzled over the top.
