Many of the most popular recipes on the site are pork recipes. While people generally grill or pan sear pork chops, this easy sheet pan meal will take the active cooking time out of this recipe.

Brown Sugar Garlic Oven Baked Pork Chops are the answer to about 500 emails from you guys asking for pork chop versions of these two recipes: Brown Sugar Garlic Pork with Carrots & Potatoes and Slow Cooker Bacon Garlic Pork Loin.

You guys have LOVED those recipe and have always asked “can I do this recipe with pork chops?” Unfortunately, no, I always said “nope, sorry.”

Today I have an even EASIER version if that is even possible. Sheet Pan Brown Sugar Garlic Pork Chops WITH a side of potatoes like my original recipe. I was going to add carrots too, but with the heat I was a bit worried they’d scorch.

Recipe alert (and actual exact one coming soon!): You had all been asking about baked pork chops with cream of mushroom soup. THIS is the final piece of that recipe served with Cream of Mushroom Soup (Condensed).

How to make Baked Pork Chops with Cream of Mushroom Soup:

  • In a baking pan, add the chops and roast for half the time.
  • Cover with my Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe, finish baking in the oven and serve.
  • Even better, you can leave the mushrooms a larger size for a better, more luxurious feeling meal.


But really, I’ve been on this brown sugar garlic kick for a while now. The pork was originally posted in my second month of blogging and just yesterday I had a Bacon Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken that we’ve still been dreaming about.

Psst, I also have a Slow Cooker Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken you NEED to try, it is fall apart tender, sticky, garlicky and amazing.

Oven Baked Pork Chop FAQs

How long do you cook pork chops in the oven?

I bake my oven baked pork chops at 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes or until they reach an internal temperature of 145-150 degrees. I usually turn off the oven and leave the oven door open about 30% to let them rest for 3-5 minutes before serving.

How long do you cook bone in pork chops in the oven?

Cooking with meat that is bone-in takes roughly 10-15% more cooking time. This recipe calls for bone-in chops so I’d say if they are boneless you can possibly cook them for 30-32 minutes.


How do you cook pork loin chops in the oven?

Pork Loin chops (like in this recipe) are primarily “white meat” of the pig. Meaning less fat than the darker meat you’d find in shoulder chops or country style ribs. This means you need to keep a close eye to make sure it doesn’t dry out.

The “dark meat” chops you can normally find less expensively at the store can handle a longer cooking time or braising. Start with an extra five minuted in the oven then check for doneness.

Tools Used in the making of Brown Sugar Garlic Oven Baked Pork Chops:
Sheet Pan: A classic, inexpensive sheet pan that is high quality and can hold up to high temperatures in the oven. If you’d prefer you could also use…
Cast Iron Skillet: This is my most used pan in my kitchen, heavy, keeps heat well and gives the BEST sear ever.

  1. All of the “glaze” ended up on the parchment paper and under the potatoes. I won’t be making this again as we were expecting a bit more of a “wow” factor:(

    1. Try patting your pork chops down with paper towels more before adding it to help remove the excess moisture.

  2. My husband loved this! The only problem I had was there was alot of juice even though I dried the chops. I pour most of the juice out then put a little more brown sugar on top. I also added some dried mustard in the mix to offset some of the sweet. Its definitely a recipe I will be cooking again!

  3. I made these today. They were tasty. Mine cooked much faster though. I checked mine at 25 minutes and they were already 165 degrees F. Maybe my chops were thinner. I am limited by what’s available at my store. Also, wondering about the accuracy of the nutrition facts. 6g of protein seems very low for pork chops.

    1. I might have been that they were thinner or your oven might run hotter too. The nutritional information on this site is automatically calculated by the ingredient list. There are many online tools you can use to figure out the numbers if you’re trying to follow a specific diet. Hope this helps!

  4. Tried this recipe tonight and I loved it. It really was very easy and very tasty.
    My husband liked it but would prefer a bit of a counter taste to the brown sugar and thought a bit of mustard might help. I am thinking dry mustard and some rings of onion on top of the chops would balance our the sweetness for his taste.

  5. Was so easy to make. Soooo delicious. My 8 month old and 4 year old grandson loved it. I cooked them in the oven with my cast iron pan, so easy to clean up with no mess. Will definitely be on the menu, more more times.

  6. Made this with 2 huge boneless chops that had been frozen, so think that’s why they were dry despite a much shortened cooking time. I think the bone-in chops (fresh) would yield a better result. I used quartered baby red potatoes & left them in after removing the chops.
    I added Brussels sprouts mixed with Dijon mustard & olive oil to the pan and turned up the oven to 400.
    The veggies were better than the chops so will try bone-in, fresh chops next time.

  7. The pork chops were so good and easy very moist and juicy the potatoes were ok I definately will be making this again over and over

  8. The pork chops were so good and easy very moist and juicy the potatoes were ok I definately will be mak8ng this again over and over

  9. Thank you for sharing this lovely recipe. The dish was quick and easy to make with great results. We loved the flavor and texture of the potatoes and pork chops. They were delicious and perfectly cooked, tender and juicy.

  10. The pork chop was so juicy and tender. And the potatoes were sweet from cooking them with the pork chop. Was a really good dish. Would recommend to anyone.

  11. I thought the recipe was very tasty. I think I ended up cooking the chops a bit too long because I wanted the potatoes and chops more brown. I will definitely make it again and tweak the timing to my taste.

  12. Just finished dinner. This was a great recipe. They were so tender and juicy. As someone mentioned before the time seemed a little less but less is good. Thank you very much for this. I am going to make it again. Yummy!

  13. Great recipe, and so easy to prepare. Instead of Yukon Gold potatoes, we went with sweet potatoes cut up into cubes. Came out evenly cooked and was delicious with the pork chops. Plan to use this recipe again!!

  14. Hello. Want to make this recipe but it doesn’t make sense to me that you don’t sear the pork before putting in the oven. They appear seared in the photo and I’m not a chef but I understand that this is important before putting something like this in the oven as it seals the juices in the meat. Also, bone-in pork chops usually take 45 minutes to cook in the oven, and potatoes in this situation should be about 1 hour, I think. Am I missing something.

  15. I made these tonight. I only had boneless porkchops, although they were fairly thick. I followed the recipe, except that I used carrots as well as potatoes. I cooked the vegetables for 15 minutes, then added the chops for the last 20 mimutes. It worked out fine. They were excellent.

    1. I made this for dinner tonight. Added onion to the pork loin pan. Family LOVED it. Meat was very tender and full of flavor. Thanks for the recipe. Will use for years to come!

    1. It won’t have a bone to protect it from drying out so I would lessen the cook time if you decide to use them anyway.

  16. The potatoes turned out great but all the sugar topping melted off the chops and burned to the pan around the parchment, leaving them bare and bland. Any thoughts why that happens?

    1. Oh no! Next time try patting down the pork chops with a paper towel before adding garlic and brown sugar, etc. Sounds like they were releasing too much liquid. You could also try scoring them to ensure it stays on. Hope this helps for next time.

  17. This was great! I used sweet potatoes as someone (on pinterest photos) mentioned. SO SO SO delicious! I made sure the sweet potatoes were near the pork chops and they were amazing. The pork chops DELICIOUS. I will definitely be making this again. Thank you!

  18. The brown sugar garlic pork chops were incredibly easy.
    We are always looking for flavorful recipes that can be adapted to a low salt diet. We replaced the salt with a salt substitute and white pepper. It was fantastic!

    1. MAde this recipe and I also found it created ALOT of juices in the pan. Kept the chops moist, and helped with the potatoes and carrots. And yes I patted down the chops with a paper towel.

  19. Made this tonight and loved it. The potatoes came out awesome, didn’t use my usual ketchup! The chops were moist and tasty! Will definitely make again.

  20. Pretty tasty! I feel that it needed a bit more flavor.. I added lime and soy sauce and wow. Loved it. Thanks for the easy to follow recipe!

  21. Any suggestion on what to make with these Porto chops?! I’m having a hard time figuring that part out lol. Thanks! I can’t wait to try them this evening!

  22. My husband & I love love LOVE this recipe – thank you so very much for sharing! I’m making it again tonight – but plan on using fingerling potatoes. Any advice/tips on what I should change or do differently, if anything?

    1. So sorry I didn’t see this until today. I wouldn’t have done anything different with the potatoes – Hope it turned out great!

  23. Looks YuM! ? Question ~ you stated people asked you if they could make it with pork chops, but your answer is nope. Just wondering why not? If you can make it on a sheet Pan, isn’t that making it? ? Thanks! ???

      1. The pork chops tasted very plain and tasteless with sugar and garlic on top. I’m sorry but I felt like they were a waste of ingredients. I used boneless chops so maybe that’s why?

        1. I’m so sorry to hear that! I definitely feel the disappointment of wasted ingredients. I’ve never had them come out bland before, so I’m thinking it could have been pork itself, both cut and if they had too much saline water pumped in them.

  24. Just made it tonight! Just delicious! I added some carrots as well with the potatoes as well as some soy sauce on the chops!! Definitely a come back recipe!

    1. You’ll need to lessen the cook time. Also because it doesn’t have a bone to protect it, it may end up coming out dry. I’d love to know how it turns out if you decide to try it, thanks!

  25. I’m a little confused about the rest of the pepper part. The recipe asks for 1/2 teaspoon divided. In step 2 it says to put 1/2 teaspoon over potatoes… I’m happy to put pepper on the pork chops but according to my math, 1/2tsp – 1/2tsp = 0tsp.

  26. The recipe was a great one I added yellow mustard and soy sauce a little trick from my brother king of meats lol also I did rice a made a gravy from the drippings gonna pin this cause I was scared of brown sugar and garlic together thanks again

    1. Yes but red potatoes might take an additional 15-20 minutes in the oven at 375 degrees. Either start them first and then add the pork or take the pork out and leave the pototatoes to finish.

  27. Can the potatoes be made a day a head of time and reheated. I love this recipe and now I want to make just the potatoes with a pork tenderloin. I’d like to make the potatoes today.

  28. I have a large cast iron skillet its not big enough for this recipe..already in oven with potatoes on bottom and pork chops on top is it going to be fine

  29. You mention 1/2 tsp black pepper in the ingredients divided.
    Then in the instructions, 1/2 teaspoon black pepper on the potatoes.
    But then “the rest of the black pepper” to go on the pork chops but all of it was used on the potatoes?
    I’m thinking it should be 1/4 tsp on the potatoes and 1/4 on the pork?
    Salt division is unclear as well…
    Otherwise a good recipe despite my guesses.

    1. Light brown. Unless you see a recipe specify dark just go for light every time. And on this recipe even if you use dark it would be delicious!

    1. Yes, just be careful, since it is a thinner pan the heat won’t be controlled as well so it won’t cook as evenly. So if your oven has a hot spot one side may cook much faster. With a thicker pan it can tend to shield from hot spots in ovens more successfully.

  30. So in step 3 it says to cover the chops with the rest if the salt and pepper, do you mean what’s left over in the bowl after you do the potatoes?
    Also my husband is really worried about how thesthese will taste, but we are loving the smell coming from the kitchen! I’m excited to try something new!

    1. So sorry for the confusion. Yes, you’ll cover the pork with garlic, brown sugar and add the rest of the salt into the same bowl that you seasoned the potatoes in previously. Hope this helps!

  31. What type of pork chops do you use, thin or thick cut?

    I wasn’t sure what type to buy so I bought thick cut and they took quite awhile to get done. I’m hoping I cooked them all the way since I don’t have a meat thermometer, but they were delicious and fork tender.

  32. My goodness is this good! I did add Hungarian paprika to the salt and pepper mixture. The chops are moist, tender and really tasty. And the potatoes…wow! This one is a keeper.

  33. This was a very tasty meal. The pepper, garlic and brown sugar was a perfect combination on the chops. They were very tender and moist. The potatoes were great also. With everything on the same pan, some of the brown sugar mix with the potatoes, added a nice flavor there also. My husband loved it! I saw where you wanted to add carrots. I did make a side dish of butter carrots with salt, pepper and a few parsley flakes.

    I like the brown sugar mixture a lot. I am thinking of using it on some chicken wings this weekend.

    1. Wow thank you so much for coming back and letting me know how you enjoyed it! I think it would make for awesome chicken wings, I may try that this weekend too, you just inspired me!
