What's for Dinner Wednesday~One Pan Ranch Pork Chops and Veggies

I love a meal that only requires one pan, and very little prep. Perfect for a night where you don't have a lot of time. This did not disappoint and would be good with chicken breasts as well.

One Pan Ranch Pork Chops and Veggies

4 (8 oz) pork chops, bone-in, 3/4 inch to 1 inch thick
16 ounces baby red potatoes, halved
16 ounces green beans, trimmed
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 (1 oz) package Ranch Seasoning and Salad Dressing Mix (Hidden Valley is GF)
3 cloves garlic, minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves (optional)


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly oil a baking sheet or coat with nonstick spray. (we lined with parchment paper for easier clean up)

Place pork chops, potatoes, and green beans in a single layer onto the prepared baking sheet.

Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with Ranch Seasoning and garlic; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Place into oven and roast until the pork is completely cooked through, reaching an internal temperature of 140 degrees F, about 20-22 minutes. (cooking time varies depending on the size and thickness of the pork chops and potatoes-we cooked for 30 minutes).  Then broil for 2-3 minutes, or until caramelized and slightly charred.

Serve immediately, garnished with parsley, if desired.

Linking up with the ladies for Thoughts of Home on Thursday.

This looks delicious Lauren and I love that's it's simple and a one pan dish. I've been trying to search for easy healthy recipes as time as been limited for cooking lately. Just got my hubby home from the hospital a week ago after a major surgery. I will make this recipe for sure this week! He's been craving chicken so I'll try it with chicken. Thanks for sharing your recipe!

Hi Lauren! This looks so good. I like that you could do this combo for chicken or pork. I'm working on my menu for the week tonight and will add this. You just impress me so much with all the creative delicious cooking you do.
